Want a chance to win Penguins/Flyers tickets? Check out how.

Greetings all! As I talked about a few weeks ago I am going to be running in the 2015 Louisville Ironman. You can click on the link to read a lot more about it but the short of the long is that I am going to be running as part of team Ironman Foundation (IMF). With that I have pledged to raise at least $3,000 for local non-profits in the Louisville area and that brings me to this post.

I will be raffling off a Pittsburgh Penguins basket that includes a few t-shirts, a sweatshirt, a sweet coffee mug, a Penguins cooler, and two tickets to the April 1, 2015 Penguins/Flyers game at the CONSOL Energy Center.

My brother was nice enough to donate the tickets which are in section 227, row K, seats 14 and 15. I can personally attest that these are great seats and for only a $10 donation you are getting a great value if you win these bad boys.

As I said above it is a $10 donation in order to get a ticket for the raffle. The raffle will take place on March 21, 2015 at Grapeville Station in Grapeville, PA (which is basically Jeannette right by Greensburg). You can purchase a ticket at the bar or you can make a $10 contribution on my donation page which you can get to by clicking this link.

If you are making an online donation you just need to mention the Penguins in the message when you click donate and shoot me an e-mail ( with the subject 'Penguins ticket raffle' and include your name and phone number in the e-mail and you are entered. For every $10 donated you can earn a chance to win (so $20 will get you two chances to win, etc.).

All proceeds of the raffle benefit the Ironman Foundation. The Ironman Foundation is a 501c3 fundraising initiative for local non-profit organizations in local communities that host Ironman races. The Ironman Foundation's mission is to leave Ironman's legacy through philanthropy, volunteerism and grant making by supporting various athletic, community, education, health, human services and public benefit non-profit organizations around the world.

You do not need to be present at Grapeville Station to win and I will be contacting the winner on March 22, 2015 and posting the winner on the Facebook event page that has been created for the event. (click the link and come join if you would like).

Here is a look at what you can win:

Thank you in advance everyone and if you have any questions just let me know!
