We’re kicking off a new year filled with Penn Alumni Family Programming!

On February 22, 2013, you’re invited to join the Penn Women’s Basketball team at the Palestra for our 2nd Annual Family Night at the Palestra!  You will get to shoot hoops with the team before the game, hear from Coach McLaughlin, and then enjoy pizza or hot dog, pretzel and a soda — all for $5 person.   Last year, it was a wonderful event c0-hosted by the Association of Alumnae, and we had over 200 attendees.  Hope to see you on February 22nd when Penn takes on Cornell!

On March 16, 2013, Alumni Relations will be hosting it’s 3rd Annual Family Day at Mask and Wig!  Bring the kids to the Mask and Wig Clubhouse, 310 S. Quince Street, Philadelphia, for a fun-filled afternoon!  Lunch begins at 11:30 followed by showtime at 12:30pm.  Penn’s Mask and Wig is an all-male comedy troupe that has entertained Philadelphians and the Penn community since 1889 with its original revues.  This year’s production, Beatuopia: A Face Odyssey, has been adapted to appeal to children ages 12 and under.  Bring the kids for lunch (hot dogs, chips, pretzels, beverage) and the show.  Ticket costs: $25/adults and $10/children 12 and under.

On Friday and Saturday, March 29 and 30, 2013, join Penn alumni and their children for an overnight adventure at Penn’s Museum for 40 Winks with the Sphinx and Penn Alumni. The night’s activities are geared to take intrepid explorers on a journey through time and across continents, with hands-on opportunities, through games and crafts, to explore ancient Egypt, the mummies and hieroglyphics, the ancient Greeks and Romans, the world of the ancient Maya, and more!  Following a scavenger hunt and an evening expedition through the galleries by flashlight, explorers roll out their sleeping bags to doze at the foot of the third largest granite Sphinx in the world. The program concludes with a light breakfast in the Museum Cafe at 8am.  The cost is $45/person (children 6-12 years old and their chaperones, 21 years or older).  One adult chaperone is required for every 1-5 children.  Absolutely no walk-in registrations are permitted.

Look for additional family programming throughout the year!  If you live outside of the 8-county Philadelphia area and wish to be included on our e-mailing list for Penn Alumni Family Events, please send an email with your request to Kristina Clark at krclark@upenn.edu.
