NEW KENSINGTON, Pa. – The Alle-Kiski Society of the Penn State Alumni Association will host a party at Rocco’s Bar & Grill in Tarentum during the Big Ten Network’s showing of the Penn State vs. Ohio State football game on Saturday, Nov. 13.
The Nittany Lions, currently with a 4-3 record, face the fifth-ranked Buckeyes in this annual Big Ten grudge match. Game time has not yet been announced, but the doors will open one hour prior to kickoff. All Penn State fans, friends and especially students are invited to attend the annual event which will feature free refreshments and a cash bar (photo ID required).
John Spadaro, an account executive with Filmet in Cheswick and an alumnus of the New Kensington Campus, has served as the event’s coordinator for the past ten years. Although Penn State did not fare well in its last clash with Ohio State, Spadaro promises “good food, good drink, and a good time whether the team wins or loses.”
This event is only one example of how the Alle-Kiski Society seeks to strengthen its connection to Penn State New Kensington students throughout the academic year. Other events include its annual Bowlathon and Golf Scramble and the “Alumni Central” tent at this year’s Fall Festival. To reserve a place at the TV Football Party, contact Bill Woodard, Alumni Relations Specialist, by phone at 724-334-6049 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
