Make-A-Wish Luncheon

I haven't had a chance to post this until now. This is video from the Pens recent "Make-A-Wish" practice / luncheon held the Friday before Christmas for 25 children.

From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review article posted December 20th:

Forward Mike Zigomanis stopped by Julie's table to talk about his missing front teeth. Defenseman Philippe Boucher gave Julie — who underwent surgery on a brain tumor last year — a high-five after he learned they were both left-handed.

The Penguins have been hosting the event for 23 years. Every member of the team stopped by the Igloo Club to make small talk, sign autographs and pose for pictures with the children — who all have a life-threatening medical condition.

Just another example of the many charitable ways this team gives back to the community (and how it shows that they genuinely enjoy doing so).
