On Tuesday, March 9, 2010, the Pittsburgh Penguins organization held its signature event, the Skates & Plates Charity Gala presented by Trib Total Media, to benefit the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Mario Lemieux Foundation.
This event featured Penguins players donning tuxedos, serving as waiters, and competing with one another for the top tips of the evening.
Penguins’ players signed individual aprons commemorating the event, plus a team signed apron and an apron autographed by the Penguins’ coaching staff. Fans that were not able attend the annual charity gala now have an opportunity to bid on those unique prizes by clicking here
