Beads of Courage



Usually you see these guy skating, body checking and taking slap shots.  Today, the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins showed a different side:  bead making.



The Pens and their wives/girlfriends have teamed up with the Palermo Heart-to-Heart Foundation to host a fashion show fundraiser benefitting the Beads of Courage Program.

What a cool idea! 

Beads of Courage is a nationally recognized program that provides strings of beads to kids with serious illnesses.  Each bead tells a story of honor, strength and hope and represents a different stage in their treatment.



Pens players will wear beads on their jerseys during warm-ups of the March 14 games.  After warm-up, the players will put one bead in a baggie with a personal note of encouragement to a child fighting cancer. 

And the wives & girlfriends will sell special Penguins logo beads on the concourse to help support the program.  For a $5 donation, fans can get at bead for themselves, and a bead will also be donated to local program participants.



The wives/girlfriends are also hosting a fashion show April 2nd at Canteen 900 in Forty Fort to raise additional money for the program.  Keep listening to KRZ for info on this special night out.
