Jerseys for Warmth to benefit 225 local families
Posted on: February 17, 2017
The Jerseys for Warmth Charitable Action raised approximately $72,000 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 225 local families maintain or restore basic utility service.
Two dozen Pittsburgh Penguins game-worn jerseys from the team’s 7-2 victory on December 20, 2016, versus the New York Rangers, were auctioned off online. Each jersey featured a commemorative patch authentication with the option to have the jersey autographed.
Winning bidders on the jerseys for Kris Letang, Brian Dumoulin, Matt Murray and Scott Wilson were invited to attend a team practice and a meet and greet on Monday, February 13, where they received their purchased jerseys from the players.
