Some one of a kind pieces of sports memorabilia, and many other unique items will be up for bid at the Fifth Annual Lion Wine and Cheese.  During live and silent auctions, bidders will have the opportunity to take home auction items that include a jersey autographed by Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, or another jersey autographed by Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin.  Tickets for club seats at a Pittsburgh Pirates game are up for grabs, as well as Penn State football tickets, a golf vacation package, weekend getaways, and a wide variety of other items that will appeal to people of all interests. Numerous businesses and individuals have donated prizes and auction items.


The event is planned for 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. on Friday, February 10, in the Multi-Purpose Building at Penn State DuBois.  Meteorologist Brian Thompson, of WTAJ-TV, will serve as emcee for the evening. 


Organized by the DuBois Educational Foundation Athletics Fundraising Committee, the event will also feature wine and cheese tasting, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and dessert.  Raffles and other games of chance will also be held. 


All proceeds will benefit intercollegiate athletic programs at Penn State DuBois. 


Admission tickets are $30 per person, which also includes a chance at the evening's door prize.  For additional information or to purchase tickets contact Julie Duffee at 375-4786 or jad62@psu.edu
