WINNER: Comment #100 was selected by, belonging to reader Katie, who has been notified of her winnings.


It has been a while since we’ve had a giveaway here at That’s Church so let’s go ahead and do something about that, shall we?

This one worth a whopping FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS.

The details!

What: Two VIP tickets, worth $250 each, to Gridiron Gaming benefiting UPMC Rehabilitation Institute hosted by Steeler Max Starks and a group of starting Pittsburgh Steelers. This fun-filled evening is a great opportunity to mingle with left-tackle Max Starks and an impressive group of starting Pittsburgh Steelers. Additionally, guests will have the chance to challenge a Steeler to one of the interactive video games used in patient rehabilitation at UPMC. Gourmet tailgate-themed cuisine will complement the game-day atmosphere, and guests are welcome to discover the many exciting technological advances used in rehabilitation.

UPMC Rehabilitation Institute strives to improve quality of life for individuals with disabilities in our community.

Where: Heinz Field, East Club Lounge

When: Monday, September 20, 2010 from 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. with an exclusive VIP reception from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. As a VIP ticket holder, you can attend that VIP reception which includes an autograph session! YAY, YOU!

I wonder if Tyler Grisham will show up? That’d be sweet and swoony. Swoony is not a word, but there is no other word that works there.

To enter! This is going to be a tough one, Burghers. Name your favorite Pittsburgh Steeler of all time. ALL TIME.

Preface your comment with, “Yo, Terry Bradshaw, I’ma let you finish, but …”

Just kidding.

My favorite Steeler of all time on and off the field? Way too easy.

Who’s yours?

Leave a comment, one comment per valid email address and I’ll let pick the winning comment number tomorrow, Tuesday, August 31 at 5:00 p.m.

Good luck! Get me an autograph if you win!

If you don’t win … you can purchase tickets by calling 412-802-8256!
