Each year, the Pittsburgh Penguins spend an evening passing plates instead of pucks in an effort to raise funds for charity. This season, the Skates & Plates Charity Gala presented by Trib Total Media, will also include an online auction of commemorative aprons embroidered with the event logo. Each apron is signed by a Penguins player. In addition, there is one team signed apron.
Proceeds from the Skates & Plates Charity Gala presented by Trib Total Media and this auction will benefit the Mario Lemieux Foundation and the Western PA Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The auction will begin on Tuesday, March 31 and end at noon on Friday, April 10, 2009.
Once the winners of the auctions have been determined and the purchasers have been processed through PayPal, the aprons will be shipped via UPS Ground. Auction winners are responsible for the cost of shipping/handling.
Please take a moment to review your bid amount before submitting. Any errors in the amount are the responsibility of the bidder and any bid submitted is considered binding by the National Hockey League. Please note that it is not necessary to have a PayPal account to bid on a commemorative apron, but you will be prompted to enter your credit card information before you are declared the winning bidder.
Once the winners of the auction have been confirmed, the aprons will be shipped.
