Jerseys for Warmth benefits 177 local families
Posted on: February 13, 2018
The Jerseys for Warmth Charitable Action raised approximately $62,000 to support Dollar Energy Fund and benefit Peoples Natural Gas customers. Peoples provided a dollar-for-dollar match on all donations and all proceeds will be used to help an estimated 177 local families maintain or restore basic utility service.
Two dozen Pittsburgh Penguins game-worn jerseys from the team’s 4-1 victory on January 13, 2017, versus the Detroit Red Wings, were auctioned off online. Each jersey featured a commemorative patch authentication with the option to have the jersey autographed.
One lucky fan bid on a Sidney Crosby autographed mini-helmet and was invited to attend a team practice and a meet and greet on Monday, February 12, where they received autographed merchandise and took photos with players.
