Bidding is underway for the third online auction supporting the Pittsburgh Penguins Scholarship at California University of Pennsylvania.
Hockey fans can bid on eight items, including autographed Penguins memorabilia, a children’s party and a game-night experience at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh. Bidding closes at 5 p.m. Feb. 4, 2011.
These items will be sold to the highest bidder:
