Event Overview

We’re proud to announce that our inaugural Night of Assists gala presented by Highmark is SOLD OUT!  Thank you to all VIP partners and ticket buyers for your support of our first-ever Night of Assists!

Come one, come all to the greatest gala on earth!

Dust off your top hats and prepare to be amazed. For the first time ever, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Highmark proudly present Night of Assists: Under the Big Top. Swing in on a trapeze, walk the tightrope, ride a unicycle or simply stroll into the ring. No matter how you get there, this is a new signature event that no one should miss.

What should you expect? Why, the unexpected of course!

Your luck will be tested at carnival and casino games manned by your favorite Penguins players. Your curiosities will be on edge with spectacular sideshow performers and fantastic feats. Your taste buds will be dazzled with wines from around the world, cotton candy cocktails, and quintessential carnival cuisine. And, your support will assist the youth initiatives of the Penguins Foundation, a cause dedicated to supporting the children in our community.

The event’s Grand Circus will take place on the floor of PPG Paints Arena with the ice transformed into a vintage-style carnival.  Stations of food, drinks (including an open bar!), wines and games will encircle the covered ice where guests will have the opportunity to interact with Penguins players and staff at gaming tables and various carnival attractions.

AND, two lucky attendees will walk away with a travel package in hand as the Penguins Foundation will be giving away a trip to London PLUS a trip to Las Vegas courtesy of Delta Air Lines and AAA Travel!

So, step right up and join us on 02.20.18 by reserving your tickets today! Ladies and gentlemen, this is the night filled with cheers, charity and champions that will leave you in wonder and awe.
