Penguins Coaching Staff to Visit Hillman to Present Pens Hats to Patients
WHY: Many cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy often wear knitted caps to stay warm, but often those hats are made for women. The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation has donated Penguins hats for those patients choosing to put their Pittsburgh pride on display as they continue their fight against cancer.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation are active supporters of the fight against cancer. In addition to regular visits to the Hillman Cancer Center, they support the National Hockey League’s Hockey Fights Cancer
initiative by raising funds at a designated home game each October. Donations benefit the Mario Lemieux Foundation
and UPMC CancerCenter.
WHEN: 10:30 a.m., Monday, Aug. 24
