Penn's Way Raffles: Latest Winners

To qualify for raffles, Penn employees must turn in their completed confidential Penn's Way envelope to their school/center's coordinator or facilitator. Employees who mail in their envelopes directly to the Payroll Department can also qualify if they inform their coordinator or facilitator that their forms have been sent directly to Payroll. Selections will be made each Monday during the campaign based on the lists provided by the coordinators and facilitators to the Penn's Way Campaign by the close of business the preceeding Friday.

We would like to give the following acknowledgements for their generous contributions to the Penn's Way 2000 Week 3 and Week 4 raffle: Computer Connection, Department of Recreation and Intercollegiate Athletics, Ivy Grille, Doodies Goodies of Atlantic City (compliments of Lois Porten of the School of Medicine).

Of course, the weekly raffle is not the only reason why Penn employees should consider participation in Penn's Way 2000. Every dollar we can raise for area organizations counts. For example, just $1 a week provides a set of literacy brochures to help 50 people learn how to read or provides 10 pound of food through a local food bank. Last year, Penn employees helped raise close to $250,000 for area organizations. This year our goal is to raise $300,000 for those agencies that serve the most in need. We thank those who have participated to date and encourage everyone in the Penn community to help us reach this goal.
