Dream Challenge Update: As of April 20th, 2015, the Penn State Glee Club Dream Challenge has raised a grand total of $78,995! With the new 2 to 1 dollar matching incentive, we have only $6,915 to go to reach our $100k goal! Thank you to all who have pledged.
There has never been a more important - or exciting - time to show your support for the Penn State Glee club than right now. Inspired by Dr. Chris Kiver's "Dreams for the Glee Club," Glee Club alumnus Mike Helms and his wife, Martha, are offering a two dollar for every dollar match of any gift made to support the Glee Club up to $50,000. That means your support for programming, travel, composition, uniform expenses and more will go twice as far.
The Glee Club Dream Challenge is only available through April 30, 2015, or until the total has been met. Amplify your support by participating in the Glee Club Dream Challenge today. To read more about the various ways to support the Glee Club, click here.
Blue & White Concert 2015: 80th Anniversary of Hi-Lo's
Saturday's Blue & White Concert was a great success, including a performance by current and former members of the Hi-Lo's to mark the group's 80th anniversary. It was terrific to see the current students mixing and singing with the alumni, and was a good reminder of the Glee Club's rich history and the traditions that are still upheld today. We are grateful to all those who have contributed to the Glee Club Dream Matching Challenge, and with just 8 days to go until the April 30th deadline, we are very close to our target, needing just $6,915 more from Glee Club members, families, friends, and supporters to raise the $100,000 amount.
Thank you to all who came back to sing at the Blue & White Concert, and to all those who have contributed to the Dream Matching Challenge. With your support, we look forward to meeting our target in the coming days.
