Five Pens fans win big with Dollar Energy Fund’s Fan Appreciation Night Raffle
Posted on: April 5, 2017
Once again this year, Dollar Energy Fund teamed up with the Pittsburgh Penguins to create the ultimate fan experience through our Fan Appreciation Night Raffle!
Dollar Energy Fund staff and Board Members sold raffle tickets during six Penguins games at PPG Paints Arena in March. Five finalists were selected from a pool of 1,100 entries for this one-of-a-kind opportunity. Each received two tickets to the Jim Beam© Make History™ Party Suite to watch the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets final regular season game on Tuesday, April 4. One of our finalists was granted participation in the Shirts Off Our Backs selection process and guaranteed a trip down to the ice to meet a player and receive an autographed jersey.
Our five finalists included Marcus Dominish, Katie O’Toole, David Lawrence, Michelle Petrina and Anthony Barilla. Before the puck dropped, each of them had the opportunity to reach into a gift bag and select a hockey puck. The bag contained four autographed pucks and one non-autographed puck. The person who received the non-autographed puck was our grand prize winner and was able to join the Shirts Off Our Backs selection process. Click here to watch the video of the finalists discovering who won the grand prize. Autographed pucks included Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel, Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin.
Dollar Energy Fund’s grand prize winner was David Lawrence and, through Shirts Off Our Backs, he received Chad Ruhwedel’s autographed jersey on the ice. Congrats, David!
Thank you to all of the Penguins fans who purchased raffle tickets. Each ticket resulted in a $5 donation for Dollar Energy Fund and all proceeds will be used to help our neighbors in need restore or maintain basic utility service.
