Donation & Appearance Requests
The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins are committed to positively influencing and supporting the local community beyond just hockey. We believe that in keeping with the Penguins tradition, we have a responsibility to give back to the community that has supported us over the years. However, because professional sports entities receive hundreds of requests for appearances and donations, the following guidelines must be followed. These guidelines ensure fairness while maximizing the benefits the Pens can provide the community.
All requests must include a WBS Penguins Charity Request Form (download here) and a letter on organization letterhead detailing the charity event. Send request to:
