Event Details

at Paradise Island Bowl

Event Overview

In 2009, the Penguins Wives Association created a bowling tournament titled Pens & Pins to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The annual event features Pittsburgh Penguins players and coaches serving as celebrity captains for the bowling teams. In addition to bowling, an online auction and bake sale is held coordinated by the players’ wives and girlfriends.

Since its inception, Pens & Pins has raised over $229,000 to make wishes come true for local children with life-threatening illnesses.
