Penguins attire suggested at this fundraiser

Here’s a shout-out to the new Damon’s Grill that will be opening next month in Peters Township, Pa.

The restaurant is hosting a pre-grand opening party in two weeks exclusively to raise money for a literacy program as a show of appreciation to its tutors for volunteering to teach people how to read.

It will benefit the nonprofit Washington County Literacy Council that is using the gesture to throw a family friendly Pittsburgh Penguins party there from 6 to 9 p.m. November 24. The organization charges no fees for its services, which also include tutoring English-as-a-second-language students.

There will be a silent auction for a Penguins jersey autographed by player Jordan Staal, as well as other donated items.

For tickets to the party at the Damon’s, 102 McDowell Lane, McMurray, Pa., call the council at 724-228-6188, or e-mail WCLC4literacy@yahoo.com

Team attire is the suggested dress code.
