PITTSBURGH - It was a special day for some Penguins fans Tuesday at Consol Energy Center as the team hosted Make-A-Wish kids and their families at practice.
At the team’s annual practice and luncheon, the Penguins hosted 30 children and their families from Make-A-Wish, the Children’s Institute, the Children’s Home and the Lemieux Family Center.
“We’re very grateful for it,” said Roxanne Elk.
Diane Mastramico’s son Rocco enjoyed the day he spent with the Pens. She added that she’s extremely thankful for the support of the Lemieux Foundation.
“The interaction with the Pens players is priceless,” Mastramico said.
The players said the time they spent with the children had similar effects on them.
“We got to see a lot of guys up close whether it’s at practice or at lunch afterwards. It’s a lot of fun,” Sidney Crosby said.
