Continuing their annual tradition of creating holiday baskets and auctioning them for charity, the Pittsburgh Penguins Wives Association has decorated and filled unique gift baskets again this year!
Each gift basket is decorated and filled with items unique to each player; their baskets showcase the player’s favorite things, hobbies, interests or hometown. While each gift basket differs in content and decoration, all baskets have a minimum monetary value of $150.00 and contain a Penguins puck autographed by that player.
Proceeds from the online auction will benefit Blessings in a Backpack, a nationwide charity that helps feed hungry elementary school-aged children. The funds raised from this auction will remain in the Pittsburgh area to assist children in our local community who receive federally funded Free and Reduced Meal Program aid during the school week and who may have little or no food to eat at their homes on weekends.
The auction will end on Monday, December 29 at 7:00 pm EST. Once the auction concludes and purchasers have been processed by the National Hockey League, the gift baskets will begin shipping within seven (7) business days via FedEx Ground. Local winners may elect to pick up their holiday baskets from the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation office, but must notify the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org within 12-hours of winning to ensure shipping is not charged.
Please take a moment to review your bid amount before submitting. Any error in the bid amount or payment information is the responsibility of the bidder. The National Hockey League, Pittsburgh Penguins and PayPal consider any bid submitted to be binding. Please note that you do not need a PayPal account to bid on an auction item, but you will be prompted to enter your credit card information before you are declared the winning bidder.
