“…Joe McCarthy, Richard Nixon, Studebaker, television …”

Is it weird I still remember every single word to We Didn’t Start the Fire? Shut up.

Each year I try to have a nice giveaway to show you how much I appreciate the donations you give and have given to Make Room for Kids at the Mario Lemieux Foundation over the years.

This year is no different!

Thanks to a good friend, I have two tickets to the sold out Billy Joel concert at PNC Park to give away to a lucky winner!

And not only that, the seats are AMAZING.

The deets:

What: Two field level tickets to Billy Joel at PNC Park

When: Friday, July 1, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.

Where: Section 20 seats with a face value of $135 each (see below for seating chart):

Seatingchart-Billy Joel.v2



How to enter: Donate to Make Room for Kids and you’re automatically entered to win (if you’ve already donated, you’re in). Do you have to donate to win? No. That would be illegal. You can also leave a comment to this post to be entered, but maybe you can spare $5, $10 or $20 bucks so that we can bring in-room gaming to sick kids at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh?

Click the Donate button under the thermometer in the sidebar to be taken to the PayPal page. Donations go directly to Mario Lemieux Foundation. You can read more about this year’s efforts here where I outline which units we are helping this year (cystic fibrosis, cardiac, colitis, Crohn’s, etc.).

Also: I’ll pick a winner next Friday, February 26 at noon using to select the winning donation/comment. Tickets are on hand and will be mailed to the winner.

Milo would like to thank you in advance for your support of Make Room for Kids!

    Donated! The people at Children’s Hospital took great care of me over 40 years ago when I developed type 1 diabetes and my sister has been part of an on-going study with Children’s Hospital about long-term juvenile diabetics.
    Great job on your part, Virginia and thanks to everyone who has donated!
