Quickie post about the Hope Gala

Last Friday was the 2009 Hope Gala, which raised thousands of dollars for The Four Diamonds Fund, fighting pediatric cancer. The night was nothing short of amazing! Nearly 350 Penn Staters (and Penn State lovers) attended the event, including a THON family, pediatric oncology doctors, Penn State Alumni Board members, and some of my sorority sisters! This is a picture of us doing the lame Alpha Delta Pi diamond, which is obligatory when more than two ADPis are together, especially after not seeing each other for a while. Go ahead, laugh at us. You'd better believe we were making fun of ourselves.

The gala was held at Capitale, a huge and fantastic venue on the Lower East Side. Afterwards, we Penn Staters did what we do best (besides raise money for kids with cancer, kick ass in football and study), partied the night away at The Delancy. Of course we worked with the bar to make sure a percentage of the drink proceeds went to THON.
