The Benefactors Dinner, on Nov. 4, was devoted to the topping off of Golkin Hall.

On a damp night, workers erected the final beam, as administrators, alumni and staff watched via video. To mark the occasion, Penn President Amy Gutmann was in attendance to laud the dean, the Law School and its alumni for a successful effort to construct the 40,000-square-foot building.

Many of the alumni who contributed to that success, as well as those who addressed other needs, were honored. They included:
Steve Cozen C'61, L'64, Joe Frumkin L'85, Steve Goodman W'62, L'65, and his wife Janis, Bob Heim W'64, L'72, Scott Mead L'82, Joe Gatto L'84, W'84, Osagie Imasogie GL'85 and his wife Losenge, Paul Levy L'72, and Paul Haaga, Jr. L'74, WG'74. The ceremony was held in Biddle Law Library which, wearing its best finery, was itself transformed.
