The 26th Annual Valentines Extravaganza presented by the Kappa Scholarship Endowment Fund of Western Pa. and the Pittsburgh Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. was held Feb. 11, at the Westin Convention Center Hotel. The evening had all the ingredients for a great party––dinner, dancing, music by Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution and The Kevin Howard Band, games of chance, a silent auction, a photo booth, and caricatures done by artist Brandon Jennings. Many of the ladies were beautiful in red, while the gents were sharp in their tuxedos.
