Ag Alumni Tailgate To Benefit Student Scholarships And Awards

Alumni and friends of Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences are invited to attend the Ag Live '08 Tailgate, on Saturday, Nov. 22 at the Snider Ag Arena, starting 3 1/2 hours prior to the Penn State vs. Michigan State football game.

Hosted by the College of Agricultural Sciences Alumni Society, the tailgate will feature a hearty brunch or lunch buffet (depending on kickoff time), complete with Berkey Creamery ice cream for dessert.

An hour before kickoff, attendees can bid on many valuable items in a live auction called by auctioneer Harry Bachman. Auction proceeds will benefit student scholarships, internship awards and other alumni programs. Featured items will include:

Penn State football weekend packages

Bed-and-breakfast packages, hotel stays and use of vacation condos and cabins

2009 season football parking passes at the Ag Arena

Beef and lamb cut to specifications, wrapped and delivered to your door

Autographed Penn State items, including a John Cappelletti jersey

Attendees also can participate in a raffle for chances to win 25 prizes, such as Penn State memorabilia; gift baskets full of cheese, wine and chocolates; restaurant gift certificates; autographed Penn State books; and other items. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the event for $1 each or six for $5.

The first 100 attendees to the Ag Live '08 Tailgate will receive a special gift from the Ag Alumni Society. Early arrivals also will be treated to a performance by the Penn State cheerleaders and the Penn State Blue Band.

Tailgate tickets are $20 for adults; $15 for Penn State students and children ages 13-18; $10 for children ages 6-12; and free for children 5 and under. Registration deadline is Nov. 14.
