The 2013 Hope Gala will be held on Saturday, February 9th, 2012 at the Edison Ballroom in Midtown West. Join us for an elegant evening of drinks, dinner, dancing, and fundraising to support the fight against pediatric cancer!
The Hope Gala is an annual black tie optional event hosted by the New York City and Northern New Jersey Chapters of the Penn State Alumni Association. Created to support fundraising efforts on behalf of The Four Diamonds Fund and The Penn State Dance Marathon (THON™), The Hope Gala contributes to the mission of conquering childhood cancer. All proceeds benefit pediatric cancer patients at the Penn State Children's Hospital and their families in need of financial aid, medical assistance, and emotional support.
