Penguins’ management, coaching staff and players will host the team’s annual 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 on March 9 at the Carnegie Music Hall in Pittsburgh.
Penguins’ players will don tuxedos and pass plates instead of pucks as they greet guests and serve as waiters for the evening.
Along with dinner, the event features silent and live auctions. Prizes are also awarded to guests for the top tips collected by the players.
Since 1986, the gala has been an annual event for the Penguins, raising more than $5 million for medical research.
Tables of 10 are on sale now. View an event brochure online
