Annual All That's Jazz student scholarship benefit set for Oct. 3

The sixth annual All That's Jazz student scholarship fundraiser at Penn State Greater Allegheny promises to be an exciting event to support students' financial needs. All proceeds are added to the Penn State Greater Allegheny Scholarship Fund, so guests will be contributing to students' success as they dine, dance, and enjoy the Irish pub-style atmosphere. Imported Irish beer, select Irish cocktails, and delicious cuisine and desserts will be available.

The evening?s featured entertainment is jazz singing by Tamara Tunie and her husband, Gregory Generet. Tunie is a McKeesport native and star of Broadway, film, and the hit TV show, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." Generet is a jazz vocalist, entertainer, and Emmy Award-winning editor.

?Scholarship funds have become increasingly important to our students and their families,? said Penn State Greater Allegheny Chancellor Curtiss E. Porter. ?These funds can make the difference between students staying in college or having to make some hard decisions about their futures.?

Since 2004, All That?s Jazz has raised $214,000 for the Penn State Greater Allegheny Scholarship Fund.

This year?s event will be from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3, at the Penn State Greater Allegheny Student Community Center, 4000 University Drive, McKeesport. The public is invited to join in the festivities to help support this worthy cause. Tickets are $75 each or 10 for $600. Information on tickets and sponsorship opportunities can be obtained by calling (412) 675-9048.

Penn State alumnus Skip Dreibelbis of True Blue Auctions in State College, Pa., will provide live auction services at this year?s event.
