Wednesday's Picture: A room of CAN!


Post #277 — Last night I had the extraordinary honor to say “Thank You” and to introduce The Land of Can to a room of incredible philanthropists at Penn’s Scholarship Celebration. Penn’s Scholarship Celebrations are held twice a year and give an opportunity for Penn’s donors to undergraduate scholarships to meet and build connections with the students that their philanthropy supports. 

I’ll be writing much more about this event in the future. But for today’s Wednesday’s Picture, I wanted to drop this quick post. I don’t know if I have ever been in a single room filled with so many incredibly giving adults… so many Can Openers!
