Pittsburgh Sports Memorabilia Up for Grabs Friday

2/7/2011 —

DuBois – Some big ticket sports memorabilia from the steel city will headline the list of items to be auctioned or raffled off at the Fourth Annual Lion Wine and Cheese on Friday.  Football and hockey fans alike will have rare items to keep their eyes on. 


A Pittsburgh Steelers football helmet signed by Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin will be featured.  Though he and the Steelers fell short of a Super Bowl victory against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, he did coach his team to a Super Bowl win in 2009. Tomlin remains the youngest head coach ever to lead an NFL team to the big game.


Also up for grabs is a football signed by former Steeler Jerome Bettis, who retired following a 2006 Pittsburgh Super Bowl victory.


For hockey fans, a jersey signed by Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sydney Crosby will be featured in the live auction.  Crosby became the youngest NHL captain to win the Stanley Cup in 2009. 


The Fourth Annual Lion Wine and Cheese is slated for 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. on Friday, February 11, in the Multi Purpose Building at Penn State DuBois.


Organized by the DuBois Educational Foundation Athletics Fundraising Committee, the event will feature wines from Australia, France, New York, and Pennsylvania, as well as a variety of cheeses to compliment the wine tasting.  Live and silent auctions are planned, and prizes will be up for grabs through games of chance.  Unique hors d'oeuvres and dessert will be available throughout the evening.


Admission tickets are $30 per person, which also includes a chance at the evening's door prize, an Xbox 360, including Kinect.  All proceeds will benefit varsity athletic programs at Penn State DuBois. 


For additional information or to purchase tickets contact Julie at 375-4786 or jad62@psu.edu
