In its fifth year, the Penn State Greater Allegheny All That?s Jazz scholarship benefit will surpass previous years with delicious cuisine, both a silent and live auction and legendary jazz vocalist Lynn Roberts headlining the event. With all proceeds from the event being added to the Penn State Greater Allegheny Scholarship fund, guests will be contributing to students? success while they dine, dance and enjoy the sophisticated jazz nightclub atmosphere.
?Scholarship funds have become increasingly important to our students and their families,? said Penn State Greater Allegheny Chancellor Curtiss E. Porter, Ph.D. ?With 85 percent of college students depending upon some form of financial aid, these funds can make the difference between students staying in college or having to make some hard decisions about their futures.?
This year?s event will be Saturday, Nov. 1, 2008 from 7 to 11 p.m. 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.
