A jersey autographed by Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward is among the auction items that will be available during the Fifth Annual Lion Wine and Cheese at Penn State DuBois. The event is slated for 6:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. on Friday, February 10, in the Multi-Purpose Building on campus. 


Drafted by the Steelers in 1998, Ward has been with the team ever since.  He is a four-time NFL Pro Bowl selection, two-time Super Bowl champion, and was named MVP of Super Bowl XL.  He attended the University of Georgia, where he played college football.


Organized by the DuBois Educational Foundation Athletics Fundraising Committee, the Fifth Annual Lion Wine and Cheese will feature wine and cheese tasting, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and dessert.  A live auction will be run by auctioneer Pat Errigo.  A silent auction, raffles, and other games of chance will also be held.  Numerous businesses and individuals in DuBois and the surrounding areas have donated prizes and auction items to the event.  Other auction items include Penn State football tickets, sports memorabilia, area golf packages, artwork, and more.  WTAJ-TV Meteorologist Brian Thompson will serve as emcee for the evening.


All proceeds will benefit intercollegiate athletic programs at Penn State DuBois. 


Admission tickets are $30 per person, which also includes a chance at the evening's door prize.  For additional information or to purchase tickets contact Julie Duffee at 375-4786 or jad62@psu.edu
