10 APRIL 2009, PHILADELPHIA, PA—Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, murder and intrigue all unfold among the ancient Egyptian artifacts of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at 6:00 pm on Thursday, 07 May 2009 when the Young Friends of the Penn Museum present Mummy Dearest!
Young Friends of the Penn Museum is a group of active Museum members ages 21 to 45 whose mission is to raise awareness, support, and promote the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology exhibitions, acquisitions, expeditions, and conservations amongst the region’s young professionals.

The event has been generously underwritten, in part, by Theodore and Schuy Wood.
