Family Day

Eubanks attended the event with her brother Ramir (center) and mother Desiree (center left), a housekeeper in Facilities Services. In addition to balloon sculpture, the Saturday morning event included food, games, a moon bounce and entertainment by the Penn Glee Club and Penn Band. The Quality of Worklife Programs office estimated that between 2,500 and 3,000 Penn employees and their families attended the party.
