Tailgate Aug. 19 Celebrates 25 Years with Phil Grosz in York
The York County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association is hosting a 25th anniversary tailgate party honoring Phil Grosz, owner and publisher of BlueWhite Illustrated, on Thursday, Aug. 19, at 6 p.m. The event takes place in the patio area adjacent the conference center at Penn State York.
Grosz will speak at 7 p.m. about the latest in Penn State football including insider information on the players, coaches, recruits, and the outlook for the upcoming season. A Penn State alumnus and former lacrosse player, Grosz has been sharing his Penn State wisdom with York fans for 25 years at this local event. BlueWhite Illustrated, which covers Penn State's football and sports recruiting, is a national and international publication published 27 times a year with more than 10,000 subscribers.
In additional to the food and speaker, the chapter is also holding fund raising raffles to support scholarships for local Penn State students. There’s also the annual Penn State football ticket drawing for a chance to win two season tickets to all home games at Beaver Stadium. A second raffle is for the use of an RV for a Penn State weekend. Tickets for the raffles can be purchased at the tailgate or from any chapter board member.
The tailgate menu includes Southern style pulled pork barbecue, Italian sausage with peppers and onions, hot dogs, and a variety of side dishes. Tailgate tickets are $15 for club members and $25 for non-club members. For more information and event registration, visit www.psualum.com/chapter/yorkcounty or call (717) 718-6781.
