Free tickets to the 15th Women’s Show are now available to Penn State York students, faculty, and staff. Tickets are available on campus in the student affairs office, admissions offices, the box office in the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center), the Lion’s Den Café, and The Bistro.

The Women’s Show, Oct. 6 and 7 in Memorial Hall at the York Expo Center, features two days of exhibits, seminars, entertainment, demonstrations, and shopping sponsored by 98.5 The Peak and a variety of other businesses. More than 100 prizes will be awarded. A portion of the proceeds from the show benefits the Victims Assistance Center, established in 1976 to provide free services to victims of sexual violence and other violent crimes.

Penn State York is among a number of sponsors of the Women’s Show and is offering a blue and white motif for the Lion’s Den Café, one of the food areas at the event. In addition, students from the campus will be doing a fashion show, “Blue, White, and WOW – Penn State Fashions,” featuring items that can be purchased in the Penn State York Bookstore. Students will take the runway on Sunday, Oct. 7 at 11:15 a.m. on the M & T Bank Stage in Memorial Hall.

At 2 p.m. on Oct. 7, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Penn State York will present a seminar entitled, “Lifelong Learning and Successes - Women Entrepreneurs,” which will provide a taste of OLLI. An OLLI volunteer will provide a background and brief history of OLLI at Penn State York. Judy Orcutt, an OLLI member and local business woman, will share her career experiences and talk about her involvement in OLLI. OLLI is a nonprofit, volunteer driven organization established to enrich the lives of mature adults living in York County by providing a variety of educational and social enrichment.

The Women’s Show hours are Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $4 for the general public and may be purchased at the door. For more information about the Women’s Show, call (717) 637-3831 or visit online at www.thepeak985.com.
