Wendell August Forge has crafted two unique ornaments from pieces of the roof at the old Civic Arena – with all proceeds benefiting Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation youth charities.
Each ornament is available for $29 plus shipping & handling. One features an image of the Civic Arena and the Pittsburgh skyline; the second features an image of the Civic Arena and the logo of the Pittsburgh Penguins, who were the building’s anchor tenant from 1967-2010. They are going FAST – only taking orders until Dec 14. It’s too late to get them in time for Christmas, but better late than never.
Together, the ornaments enable fans to honor 50 years of Pittsburgh memories while supporting the Penguins Foundation’s charitable efforts, which focus on the region’s youth.
