Cal U is the official education partner of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Proceeds from the online auction support the Pittsburgh Penguins Scholarship, awarded annually to a Cal U student.

Penguins superstars Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby and James Neal have each signed a jersey to be auctioned as a package with a miniature helmet and puck.

Two All-Star packages feature an official program and an All-Star jersey signed either by Malkin or Kris Letang.

Bidders can win a round of golf at Mystic Rock and lunch for two guests with Penguins’ broadcaster Phil Bourque, or a T-shirt collection and a poster autographed by play-by-play announcer Mike Lange.

Two dinner packages are available: Either a private dinner for six in the Penguins’ executive dining room in the Lexus Club, or dinner for two in the Lexus Club, plus Zamboni rides and two tickets to a game.

An Iceburgh birthday party for kids features a one-hour appearance by the Penguins’ mascot, plus an ice cream cake and 10 autographed pucks.

There’s even an official Pittsburgh Penguins neon clock, featuring the team’s original logo.

In all, 11 items are up for bid. Details are available at www.pittsburghpenguins.com.

“Cal U’s partnership with the Pittsburgh Penguins continues to pay off for our students,” said Craig Butzine, vice president for Marketing and University Relations.

“In addition to working with us on some great events, the Pens have used online auctions to create a scholarship fund that now holds more than $20,500. This new auction will help the fund to grow even further — and Pens’ hockey fans won’t want to miss the items up for bid this time around.”
