PITTSBURGH - The University of Pittsburgh Athletic Department has once again teamed up with 100.7 Star and Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank for its 'Pack the Pete' Food Drive, which will run the entire month of November.
CBS Radio's 100.7 Star will be broadcasting live from six (6) events at the Petersen Events Center and Fitzgerald Field House during November to help take donations of nonperishable food items which kicked off this past Sunday, November 2 at the Panthers Volleyball match against Syracuse.
Those who make a donation at any volleyball or women's basketball game will receive complimentary admission to that day's game along with being entered to win a pair of tickets to 100.7 Star's O Starry Night concert at the Petersen Events Center on December 9. The O Starry Night lineup includes performances from Train, Daughtry, O.A.R., Christina Perri and Matt Nathanson.
Fans making a donation at the wrestling match or men's basketball game will be entered to win a pair of tickets to 100.7 Star's O Starry Night concert. Winners will be announced during each of the seven games.
Fans who are unable to attend any of the events will be able to drop off nonperishable items in the Petersen Events Center lobby, beginning on November 2.
Last year's 'Pack the Pete' promotion raised over 13,000 pounds of non-perishable items for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, which serves an 11-county region in Western Pennsylvania. Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank distributes almost 1.7 million pounds of food every month to those in need.
