The Mario Lemieux Foundation, in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Penguins, announced today the Mario Mosaic fundraiser, a fan driven tribute to Pittsburgh Penguins legend and owner Mario Lemieux.
The Mario Mosaic, when completed, will be a collection of images from thousands of Pittsburgh Penguins fans, Mario Lemieux Foundation supporters and cancer survivors that come together to create a 20’ x 8’ tribute image that will be on display in the main lobby of the new Consol Energy Center.
Supporters can be a part of Pittsburgh Penguins history by having their photo permanently on display in the Mario Mosaic. Photographs can be uploaded for a donation of $66.00 at www.mariolemieux.org/mariomosaic
Fans will be able to view their photograph and the full tribute image when the mosaic is unveiled in CONSOL Energy Center in October 2010. A website will also be launched where participants can view the mosaic, zoom in on photos, view information about each photo and share the Mario Mosaic with friends.
Photos will be collected until August 31. The final Mario Mosaic tribute image will be unveiled in October.
All proceeds benefit the Mario Lemieux Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to raising funds for cancer and neonatal research and Austin’s Playroom Project, an initiative that creates sibling playrooms in medical facilities.
