Cost is $25 per adult; $10 for children. Current student athletes are free. Proceeds benefit Penn Charter endowed funds.

Kenny Caldwell OPC '89 Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship seeks to bring to Penn Charter a student who exemplifies Kenny's upbeat personality, appreciation for city life, and commitment to positively influencing others.

Peter K. Ortale OPC '83 Scholarship Fund. The fund seeks to provide tuition assistance to an Upper School student who, like Peter, exhibits the qualities of the scholar-athlete and demonstrates a high level of motivation, self-reliance and leadership, both in the classroom and on the playing field.
