Event Overview

Night of Assists is the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation’s newest signature event attended by the full Penguins roster, coaching staff and management.  The inaugural Night of Assists charity gala, proudly presented by Highmark, was held during the 2017.18 season raising over $450,000 in support of the Penguins Foundation’s youth and special needs programs.  This season’s 2nd Annual Night of Assists will take place on February 14, 2019 at PPG Paints Arena.

For the first-ever (and sold out!) Night of Assists, PPG Paints Arena was transformed “under the big top” into a vintage-style circus complete with spectacular sideshow acts, fantastic feats, cotton candy cocktails and more!  Stations of food, drinks (including an open bar!) and games encircled the covered ice where guests had the opportunity to interact with Penguins players and staff at casino gaming tables and various carnival attractions.  Without a doubt, it was the greatest gala on earth!

Each season, the Penguins Foundation will unveil a new theme for Night of Assists. Be sure to check back during the 2018.19 season to learn more about our next Night of Assists (on Valentine’s Day!) and to join the Penguins on the ice in support of a tremendous cause!
