Cool Down for Warmth - Event Schedule

Event Schedule (Thursday & Friday)

7am – 3pm: Ice House Open to Public

Every individual and team who signed up through CrowdRise is assigned a 30-minute slot to sit in the ice house and continue to raise money and awareness for our neighbors in need. Once they reach their goal, they can vacate the house and “feel the warmth.” Everyone and anyone is welcome to tour the ice house. Donations appreciated!

3WS Pittsburgh will be on site throughout the event. Tune in to 94.5!
