Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and the Pittsburgh Penguins today announced a "Steal the Lightning's Thunder" rally at the Allegheny County Courthouse Courtyard beginning at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, April 13.
WDVE's Val Porter will emcee the event, Iceburgh will be on hand, musical entertainment will be provided by Kardaz, and Shearer's will provide a limited number of snacks for fans.
The Mayor and County Executive have declared Wednesday "Black & Gold Day," and they are encouraging fans to show their Penguins pride by donning the team's colors to mark the first home game in the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The County Executive and Mayor are also asking those attending the rally to bring a canned good, non-perishable food item, or cash donation for the Scouting for Food drive, which benefits the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
The Penguins are asking fans attending Wednesday night's game to wear white to create a "white out" at Consol Energy Center. For those who do not have tickets, the game will be shown on the "Big Screen" at the Civic Arena's south parking lot on Centre Avenue at 7:00 p.m., courtesy of Trib Total Media.
