Jerseys for Warmth raises $53,000 for local families
Posted on: February 25, 2019
The Jerseys for Warmth Charitable Action raised more than $53,000 to support Dollar Energy Fund and benefit Peoples Natural Gas customers in need of utility assistance. Peoples provided a dollar-for-dollar match on all donations and all proceeds will be used to help an estimated 150 local families maintain or restore basic utility service.
Over two dozen Pittsburgh Penguins game-worn jerseys from the team’s 4-0 victory on January 4, 2019, versus the Winnipeg Jets, were auctioned off online. Each jersey featured a commemorative patch authentication with the option to have the jersey autographed.
Three lucky fans bid on autographed mini-helmets and are invited to attend a team practice and a meet and greet on Wednesday, March 6th, where they will receive autographed merchandise and take photos with players.
