Family Night at the Palestra 2013

Author: Kristina Clark

On Friday evening, February 22, I will once again have the pleasure of hosting over 200 Penn alumni and their families for an event at the Palestra. This will be the Second Annual Family Night at the Palestra — and we’re looking forward to another great event!  The evening begins around 5:15 PM with children of all ages shooting hoops with Penn’s women basketball team.  The kids had a blast last year and so did the players, and they are all looking forward to spending some time on the court together again.  Following the shoot-around, and prior to the basketball team taking the court for warm-ups, families will be greeted for a brief presentation by women’s head basketball coach, Mike McLaughlin.  The families will then take their seats to gear up for the game, or head to the concession stand for a hot dog or pizza, soft pretzel and a beverage!  Penn Alumni families will be treated to an amazing night.

The cost to participate in the Palestra Family Night event is $5/person. The event is sponsored by Penn Alumni and the Association of Alumnae.  If you wish to register, please click the following link:  REGISTER NOW!  We look forward to seeing you on February 22nd!
