Dollar Energy Fund teamed up with the Pittsburgh Penguins to create the ultimate fan experience and raise funds for local families in need of utility assistance. Five finalists were selected from a pool of 975 entries for our one-of-a-kind Fan Appreciation Night Raffle. Each finalist received two suite tickets to watch the Pittsburgh Penguins vs Nashville Predators game on Monday, April 15, 2024, at PPG Paints Arena.

Before the puck dropped, each of the finalists had the opportunity to reach into their gift bag and pull out a hockey puck. The finalist who received a yellow puck was granted participation in the Shirts Off Our Backs selection process and received an autographed, game-worn jersey from Bryan Rust (#17). Congratulations to our grand prize winner, John Blough! The remaining finalists received autographed pucks.

Thank you to all of the Penguins fans who purchased raffle tickets. Each ticket resulted in a $10 donation to Dollar Energy Fund, with a dollar-for-dollar match from our utility partners. In total, the Fan Appreciation Night Raffle raised $9,750 in utility assistance. All proceeds will be used to help our neighbors in need restore or maintain basic utility service.
