Pens to Hold Collection for Victims; Cancel Halloween Theme

Published

on

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Sunday they will hold a collection Tuesday for victims and families of Saturday’s tragic attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill.

Donations may be made as fans enter at each of the arena’s three gates.

“The Pittsburgh Penguins join the greater Pittsburgh community in standing up against this senseless violence and supporting the victims and families of the Tree of Life Synagogue,” said David Morehouse, Penguins president and CEO.

The team said the Halloween theme was no longer appropriate.

“The city has a heavy heart,” said Morehouse.

A moment of silence will be held before the game to honor the 11 victims who lost their lives when an anti-semitic gunman began shooting inside the synagogue, Saturday morning. The gunman is in custody. The attack has been called the worst attack on the Jewish community in U.S. history.
