The Benjamin Franklin Society (BFS) certainly had cause to celebrate during Homecoming Weekend.

A crowd of 515 alumni, parents, and friends gathered at the BFS Homecoming Breakfast in Houston Hall to celebrate Penn’s leadership annual giving donors prior to the November 9 Homecoming game against Princeton.

The family-friendly event featured comments by Penn Alumni President Julie Beren Platt, C’79, PAR’05, PAR’08, PAR’12, who, after an introduction by Vice President John H. Zeller, emphasized the importance of unrestricted giving in the successes of the Penn community across all of our schools and centers.

“Just like you, Penn’s students today are fiercely dedicated to our community and passionately engaged in all this campus has to offer,” said Platt. “Our community thrives, in good part, because of your continued engagement and support.”

After Platt thanked the crowd for the generosity that fuels Penn’s continued success, she introduced the band and cheerleaders, who brought the event home, celebrating the Quaker spirit and sporting true Red and Blue pride.
