The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and the Citrone Foundation will team up to host “We Love Moms Night” when the Penguins take on the Nashville Predators on Thursday, March 31 at CONSOL Energy Center.
The unique event will give all fans a chance to salute moms – and especially hockey moms – while raising funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), the nation's highest rated breast cancer organization.
The first 3,200 ladies (18 and older) in attendance will receive a specially-produced Michael Kors canvas tote. The inscription inside each tote says “To my favorite hockey mom … you bring glamour to the game. MK”
Fifty “Hockey Moms” from local youth hockey organizations also have been selected to attend the game with their son/daughter hockey player.
“This is a great opportunity for all of us to salute moms and show them how much they mean to us,” said Dave Soltesz, president of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation. “We are pleased to once again partner with the Citrone Foundation and Cindy and Rob Citrone. ‘We Love Moms Night’ also provides an important platform to raise money for BCRF's mission of funding the world's most innovative breast cancer research.”
Fans will have the opportunity to donate to BCRF in three ways during the March 31 game:
- Purchase a Penguins Foundation 50/50 raffle ticket – all raffle proceeds from that night benefit BCRF.
- Bid to win “Glam” items with the Penguins Foundation silent auction app. Visit bidpal.net/pens from your smartphone for a chance to take home items from Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Tory Burch purses and much more. All proceeds go to BCRF.
- Text your name, donation amount and short message to 646 681 5166.
All fans in attendance also will receive a custom Penguins luggage tag.
The Penguins Foundation and the Citrone Foundation are proud to support all moms and Pittsburgh’s own BCRF grantees: Dr. Adrian Lee, Director of The Women’s Cancer Research Center, UPCI; Dr. Steffi Oesterreich, Director of Education, UPCI; Dr. Nancy Davidson, Director of the University Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and UPMC Cancer Center/Member of BCRF Scientific Advisory board; Dr. Thomas Kensler, Professor, Pharmacology & Chemical Biology, The University of Pittsburgh.
