On Wednesday, September 30, the Pittsburgh Penguins players and management enjoyed lunch with 500 of their fans. The annual Penguins Face-Off Luncheon was held for a sold-out crowd at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh.
The masters of ceremony were Mike Lange and his broadcast partner Phil Bourque. The annual event featured remarks from Penguins Chief Executive Officer Ken Sawyer, General Manager Ray Shero, Head Coach Dan Bylsma and Chief Executive Officer of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development Dennis Yablonsky. Guests were entertained by a highlight video as lunch was served and had an opportunity to win autographed Penguins memorabilia in a Chinese Raffle.
