Want to get out and play some golf? Enter the CAN Golf Tournament on August 8th. CAN is the network that we play all our social sports through.

So... this has been kind of a bummer of a summer, right? With all of our seasons canceled, we miss you guys! But we do hope you're all staying safe and healthy (and wearing those masks!) Come play socially distanced golf and help support CAN through this tough time.

CAN's First Ever Golf Fundraiser! Happening August 8th at Pleasant Valley. This is the perfect tournament for a full range of golfers, from scratch to really crappy, because it is a ton of fun!

Sign up as a single player, twosome, or foursome - email Ash for details and registration links ([email protected])

Want to support CAN but not leave quarantine? We're happy to take Paypal donations that go directly to the CAN bank account and help defray our pandemic shutdown costs!

Wow what a powerful Friday night! While we were not able to have DC Diamonds at Nats Park like originally planned we still had an amazing virtual event. Thank you for everyone that attended, spoke, donated, bought items, volunteered and so much more. Together we raised $17,886.77 during the year to donate to THON #PennStateDC #DCDiamonds #THON

$17,886.77 closer to a cure. πŸŽ—

Thank you so much to everyone that joined us for our first-ever Virtual DC Diamonds event last night!! We are PROUD to announce the impact we’ve had over our 2019-2020 fundraising year. This number corresponds to 512 hours of music therapy, 4 months of maintenance for essential research equipment, or 18 hours of the Four Diamonds Research Program - all in pursuit of a cure for pediatric cancer.

Thank you so much to all of our donors for helping to support our mission. Together, we are making a difference - for more tomorrows, for the kids, and for a cure. πŸŽ—

Penn State Alumni Beach Happy Hour

Unfortunately this years Dewey Beach Happy Hour will not be taking place. But we will come back bigger and stronger in 2021. See you all back at the beach in July 2021.

To Our Penn State Family & Friends-

After much deliberation and careful consultation with our Delaware and DC-area Chapter board members, and leaders of the Penn State Alumni Association, we have decided to cancel the PSU Alumni Beach Happy Hour and look forward to gathering next July 2021.

We know how much this event means to us all. For more than 20 years, it has – and will continue to be – an annual β€œmeeting place” and reunion for alumni of every age, their families, and friends of Penn State. But our first charge must be to ensure the safety of those we celebrate with each year.

We’re grateful to our longtime partner, Northbeach Restaurant, their staff and management team who have been such wonderful friends to us for so many years. We assure them (and you all) WE WILL RETURN in JULY 2021, and we thank them for their patience and cooperation during these unprecedented times.

To that end, if you decide to venture to Dewey Beach this summer – please continue to patronize and support those establishments and friends, like Northbeach, who have partnered with us over the years.

The health and safety of our alumni and friends is of utmost importance. Please, continue to adhere to the safety and social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and the State of Delaware (https://coronavirus.delaware.gov/what-delawareans-can-do/).

We wish you a safe, healthy and happy summer, and we look forward to a big celebratory return to the PSU Alumni Beach Happy Hour in July 2021!
