In the center, a video appears of Denise Brown, PSD alumna, standing in a corner of the hall with two picture frames of various buildings within two campuses. There is a wooden bench on the right side of the wall. There is a gold frame around the video. Hello! I’m Denise Brown, and I am a PSD alumna from the Class of 1982. I’m also the PSD Alumni Association President, and a member of the PSD Board of Trustees. When we think about PSD, it brings so much to mind. I reflect back and think about how every time I visit the campus I am brought back to my childhood. You know the saying “there’s no place like home,” and for me, that is PSD. My home. A place that I think about often. Now we have an opportunity to celebrate a particularly special event: the PSD gala. This occasion will mark a long history and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us to celebrate this milestone together. The Gala will be held on Saturday, March 5th, 2022. The location will be Center City, Philadelphia. If you’re familiar with the old John Wannamaker building, that’s in Downtown right across from the City Hall plaza. You may also remember that if you go in that building, upstairs is the Crystal Tea Room. That’s where the gala will be held. In terms of the ticket price, if you have ever attended PSD – regardless of how long or short your enrollment length was – you can be counted as a PSD alumni and register for the discounted rate of $125. If you never attended PSD, your ticket price is $250. One-hundred and twenty-five dollars is such a reasonable price. That amount will get you the meal, which is astonishing – you get filet mignon and salmon. What a delicious meal for $125. It is a fancy event so be prepared for that! You also get unlimited drinks, free parking, and a gift. In addition to all of this your registration covers an opportunity to see the special guest. If you want to know who it is, you have to check out the website you can get that information at www.psd.org When you open the PSD website you’ll see the 200th Gala. Click on that, and it will take you straight to the page where you can register and get additional information you want more information. I do too, but i’ve already gotten my ticket, all funds that are raised as part of the registration price will go back to supporting PSD. Remember, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to think about all the time you spent at PSD: your home away from home as a child. Come with me, support PSD, and be at the 200th Anniversary PSD Gala. You better come!
