Penguins to honor 'community heroes' at each home game


PITTSBURGH (93.7 the Fan) To honor local ‘Community Heroes’ the Pittsburgh Penguins and PPG are joining to host those who have worked hard to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as select season ticket holders.

These community heroes will be honored at every home game for the Penguins during the 2020-21 season.

The first group to be honored will be UPMC front-line workers Alicia Brown and Edana Peterson as well as season ticket holder Joe Welch.

“These two groups – essential workers and season ticket holders – mean so much to the Pittsburgh Penguins,” said Terry Kalna, the team’s chief revenue officer. “This is a small way for us to say thank you – to essential workers for keeping us safe, and to season ticket holders for their continued loyalty. It will be our honor to host representatives of each group at every game this season at PPG Paints Arena.”

The group will be honored at the Penguins home opener on Sunday, January 17.

Season ticket holders will be contacted directly about other initiatives that the Penguins will be rolling out this season.
