For the fifth year, the Pittsburgh Penguins Booster Club will sell an annual charity holiday ornament for the benefit of the Autism Society of Pittsburgh.
This season, the Penguins teamed up with Wendell August Forge to create a handcrafted ornament set. This set includes three icicle ornaments crafted in aluminum by Wendell August Forge’s artisans. Each ornament is tied with a festive red ribbon and is sold in a custom box.
Proceeds from the sale of the charity ornament set will benefit the Autism Society of Pittsburgh, an organization in the Pittsburgh area dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by autism. The society uses funds to increase public awareness about the disease, to help those with the disease find appropriate care, and to provide the most recent information regarding treatment, education, and research about the disease to the local community.
Fans may purchase the 2010 Penguins Booster Club Charity Ornament Set during Penguins home games beginning Monday, November 15. The ornament will be available for purchase at select locations on the lower and upper concourses of CONSOL Energy Center.
Normally a handcrafted ornament set would be prohibitively expensive, but our friends at Wendell August Forge donated the set up and die creation for this set. Because of their generosity, we are able to offer the ornament set for $20! Supplies are limited, however, so please purchase soon to ensure that you’ll have the Penguins Booster Club Charity Ornament Set for the holidays!
