Penn State Mont Alto to kick off major development campaign May 1

4/27/2010 —

Penn State Mont Alto will kick off For the Future—The Campaign for Penn State Students, a multi-year development campaign, with an exciting evening of celebration on campus Saturday, May 1, 2010. Penn State President Dr. Graham Spanier will attend and speak at the event. The evening’s entertainment are the senior students from the University’s outstanding Musical Theatre Department at University Park. Their performance at Mont Alto will precede a planned trip to New York for Broadway auditions the following day. According to the University, the number of Penn State musical theatre alumni performing simultaneously on Broadway peaked at 13 a year ago—a particularly impressive number considering the University’s musical theatre program was started just 15 years ago.

Additionally, Penn State Mont Alto students will share testimonials and the Penn State Mont Alto Jazz Band will perform.  The For the Future campaign at Mont Alto will primarily focus on student scholarships. All of the money raised by the campus will remain at Mont Alto to support its students and programs. The celebration will begin at 6 p.m. in the Multipurpose Activities Center on campus. Tickets are available for $40 per person by calling the Penn State Mont Alto development office at 717.749.6110.
