The Hope Gala

hope-gala-logoThe Hope Gala is an annual black tie optional dinner originally founded by the New York City Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association and supported by the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association. Created to drive fundraising efforts on behalf of The Four Diamonds Fund and The Penn State Dance Marathon (THON™), The Hope Gala contributes to the mission of conquering childhood cancer now as its own 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  All proceeds benefit pediatric cancer patients at the Penn State Children’s Hospital and their families in need of financial aid, medical assistance, and emotional support.
