Rededication of dining
facility honors donors

Names synonymous with quality food service throughout Central Pennsylvania now are prominently associated with the dining facility on Penn State Altoona's campus. The recent rededication of the facility, now named Port-Sky Café, commemorated the philanthropic vision of Neil and Marilyn (Mickey) Port and Phillip and Rosalind (Roz) Sky, whose roots in the food service industry can be traced to family-owned Sky Brothers Inc., an Altoona-based food distributor.

Gifts from the Ports and Skys led to the naming of the dining facility, formerly known as Hickory Court Café.

Cousins Neil Port and Phil Sky, and Mickey Port and Roz Sky, have been generous benefactors of Penn State and Penn State Altoona over many years. The involvement of the Skys in the School of Hotel, Restaurant and Recreation Management includes their support for Mateer Building, which now houses the school on the University Park campus. The Ports' philanthropic vision has benefited a host of programs and initiatives in the colleges of engineering and education, and both couples have been honored by the University for their longstanding financial support.
