Fans often cherish memories that are made on the ice during the game. For Gina Hammond, a life-changing experience happened in the stands at PPG Paints Arena following the Penguins' game on Dec. 30 versus New Jersey.
"It's real important because it's not like they have to do this," Megan Beachley said. "It is important that they recognize us as a fanbase and find it important enough to make a night of it and highlight our community. A lot of my friends are Pens fans and sports fans. It's just awesome that they do it, and we can have a night. I love the Pens, and I love that I can be myself in this community during the game. It's both of my worlds colliding that I love."
When Krystal Willoughby and her daughter Lowin were invited to a photoshoot as part of a Hockey Fights Cancer event with So Many Angels and the Penguins Foundation, they were excited… but they had no idea how special the opportunity would be.
