125 YEARS
OF WOMEN AT PENN

Mark your calendars! On November 1-2, (the two days prior to Homecoming) alumnae from all over the world will return to campus to celebrate how far we’ve come and to leave a legacy for future generations of Penn women.

Highlights include:
Panel discussions featuring some of our most accomplished alumnae
Gala luncheon with keynote speaker, Andrea Mitchell CW’67
Dinner with Dr. Rodin CW’66 and the trustees, followed by a private performance of The Vagina Monologues (limited ticket availability)
Networking reception
A poster honoring Penn women authors
A specially commissioned sculpture
The unveiling of the Women’s Walkway and Generational Bridge at the Class of 1949 (38th Street) Bridge. The Women’s Walkway provides a lasting way to honor the role you or a woman family member played in Penn’s history and to leave a legacy for generations of Penn women to come. The Generational Bridge commemorates another proud heritage at Penn: families of Penn graduates. Donor options are available for $5,000-$100,000.

PENNCARES

The clubs in Cleveland, Sarasota, Miami, Westchester, Metro New Jersey, New York, Los Angeles, Baltimore, and Philadelphia have already committed to having a community-service activity for this year. As in the past, the projects will take on a variety of forms, from raising money for a seeing-eye-dog fund, to building a house with Habitat for Humanity, to working in a soup kitchen. Check out (www.alumni.upenn.edu/ penncares) for a listing all of the clubs that are participating and what they are doing. We hope we can put your club on that list. For information, help and ideas, contact Joel Nied at (215) 963-5274 or at <Joel.R.Nied.C90@ alumni.upenn.edu>.
