Navy & Gold Gala Rescheduled for April 8, 2017


The William Penn University Athletic Booster Club has announced that the annual Navy & Gold Gala, originally set for October 8 at the Lacey Recreation Complex, has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 8, 2017, at the National Guard of Iowa Armory in Oskaloosa. The change in date and venue has been attributed to potential issues beyond the control of the university that could possibly impact the event.

This fundraiser will still feature an evening of trivia and all funds raised will go to support athletic scholarships for students. In 2015, Navy & Gold Gala proceeds helped fund transportation improvements. The 2014 event helped to fund the purchase of a passenger van, filling necessary transportation needs. In 2013, the event helped with stadium improvement projects at the Lacey Recreation Complex. The 2012 event helped with the purchase of William Penn University Track & Field equipment.

Now in its fifth year as an event, the evening includes an interactive trivia contest, appetizers, and a night of friendly competition for friends of William Penn University. Tickets are $30 per person or $240 for an eight-person table. To reserve your seat or to reserve a table, contact the William Penn University Office of Advancement at 641-673-1044. Seating is limited, so reserve your spot today.
