Help GPLC at this saturday's pens playoff game

Dear friend of GPLC,

We need your help! We’re exploring the possibility of participating in a charity raffle conducted by the Pittsburgh Penguins at their May 8th playoff game vs. the Montreal Canadiens (that is this Saturday).

20 to 30 volunteers are needed to sell raffle tickets at the arena on behalf of GPLC. Volunteers will need to arrive at 5:15 pm and be prepared to stay until the end of the second intermission.

*Should you choose to volunteer, you will NOT receive a ticket to the game,* but you will be close to the action.

GPLC could realize as much as $5,000 from this initiative, as Pens fans are accustomed to charity drives at each playoff game.

This opportunity was only recently presented to us, so we are unfortunately not in control of the timeframe. Still, it’s an opportunity to raise money to support our students.

If you are willing to volunteer, please respond by 4 p.m. today, Tuesday May 4th. We promised to tell the Penguins by 5 p.m. today if GPLC will be a part of this or not.

Please email Jackie Hunter, jhunter@gplc.org, with your response.

Thanks for your help!
