At the Penguins-Capitals game Monday, the Penguins recognized Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield for their partnership in supporting the TICKETS FOR KIDS - HIGHMARK POWER PLAY PROGRAM.
Through this program with Highmark, 21,000 Penguins tickets have been donated through Tickets for Kids, to deserving children throughout Western Pennsylvania since 2006.
Founded in 1994, Tickets for Kids works with hundreds of community social service organizations that serve deserving children and their families. They create magical moments and lifetime memories for children who may otherwise never have the chance to enjoy the excitement of Penguins hockey.
The Penguins have been involved with the Tickets for Kids foundation since 1996, contributing more than 50,000 tickets valued at over $3.9 million.
During the game, a commemorative ticket was presented to Aaron Walton, Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Thanks to the support of the Penguins, Highmark and many other area organizations, Tickets for Kids is celebrating their one millionth guest. More than 600 Tickets for Kids guests were welcomed at the Penguins vs. Capitals game alone.
Thanks to Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield for partnering with the Penguins to make this amazing program successful to so many deserving children throughout Western Pennsylvania!
