The FanSided network, along with our friends at our fantastic hosting company, Site5, are partnering to raise money for the Boys and Girls Club of America. Our goal is $5,000 although I believe the generosity of sports fans like those who read this blog will ensure we blow by that amount like Mike Wallace blows by defensive backs.
The Boys and Girls Club of America provides all young people, particularly those most in need, with a safe place where they can learn and grow into responsible adults through life-enhancing programs and character development experiences. It’s an organization near and dear to many of our hearts, including Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley. Woodley has been active in support of local chapters of the BGCA and I hope my readers will join NPC, FanSided, and Site5 by contributing on a national level.
Pittsburgh sports fans have much to be thankful this Holiday season. The Steelers, already the most decorated franchise in NFL history, are poised to make another run at the Lombardi Trophy. The Penguins prepare to host the Winter Classic, the NHL’s signature event, while enjoying the services of the best hockey player on the planet. And the Pirates, er, well, PNC Park is still the nicest place to watch a game on a warm summer evening.
I realize times are still tough for many but if you are willing to contribute even a little something, it would be greatly appreciated. You can make your donation by clicking the following link: http://bgca.convio.net/site/TR/Events/General?pg=fund&fr_id=1060&pxfid=1970
Thanks and Happy Holidays!
