This past March, seven Lettermen participated in the inaugural Happy Valley Cruise, hosted by Sue Paterno. The cruise, which departed from Port Canaveral with two stops in the Bahamas, was a fundraiser for Special Olympics PA.
PSU Lettermen have supported Special Olympics Pennsylvania for a number of years and the cruise provided an opportunity to expand this support.
Lettermen served as team captains for a beach volleyball tournament, participated in a meet and greet, entertained the Happy Valley cruisers with a fan-favorite Q&A session hosted by Jay Paterno (seen in the photo above). Lettermen also served as hosts for various special events, including private dinners and a sunset cruise.
Lettermen participating in this inaugural fundraising event included Franco Harris, Jeff Hartings, Brian Masella, Jay Paterno, Marco Rivera, Brandon Short, and Blair Thomas.
A second Happy Valley Cruise is already scheduled for 2020. The dates are March 9-14, 2020 on Celebrity Cruise’s Infinity. Lettermen who are confirmed for 2020 so far include Levi Brown, Chafie Fields, Franco Harris, Jeff Hartings, Brian Masella, OJ McDuffie, Jordan Norwood, Coach Jay Paterno, Stephen Pitts, Brandon Short, Blair Thomas, Coach Ron Vanderlinden, Leo Wisniewski, and others.
