Navy & Gold Gala Reaches Goal
Oskaloosa, Iowa – Booster clubs are an important part of many schools. The William Penn Booster Club is no different.
On Saturday, Wm. Penn’s Booster Club hosted the Navy & Gold Gala. This was a re-brand of the previous years Duck Pluckers Ball. As in years past, the center court at Penn Central Mall was transformed, and several hundred supporters gathered to dine, converse and outbid each other for the many donated items.
The focus of this year and for the next coming years will be to focus on updating the transportation fleet of the university. The goal this year is to raise $20,000 for that purpose. Last year, the Booster Club raised $14,000, which went towards improvements and track equipment at Lacey.
Nik Rule, Director of William Penn University Public Relations, said that Saturday evenings event did reach the goal of raising $20,000. “We’re very pleased with the event and are excited that we were able to reach our goal, in our effort to buy a new passenger van.”
Rule went on to say, “There were so many members of the community and fans of William Penn that were able to get an insight on some of the great things our University has going on. It’s an exciting time to be a Statesmen and the attendance and support at this event for the Athletic Booster Clubs effort is just one prime example of that.”
