CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County Fair Queens for a Cause charity is excited to be hosting a Pittsburgh Steelers Footballers Basketball Game against the Clearfield All-Stars on April 2 at 2 p.m. at Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School’s Bison Gymnasium. Doors will open at 1 p.m.
A select group of six to eight members of the Pittsburgh Steelers, known as the Pittsburgh Steelers Footballers Basketball Team, will demonstrate their athletic talents against the Clearfield All-Stars, comprised of local men and women.
There are still openings on the Clearfield All-Star team. A participation fee of $250 per player will be charged. Players must be age 18 years or older and may solicit sponsors. If interested in playing or sponsoring a player, please contact Jamie Straub by March 24 at 814-591-4480.
Tickets are $7 and can be purchased until Friday, March 31 at Burns & Burns Associates Inc., C. Classis Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM, Clearfield County Fair & Park Board Office, Clearfield YMCA, Eagle Haven Computers Inc. and Mint Condition in Grampian. Tickets will also be sold at the door the day of the event.
This year marks the seventh year this event will be brought to the area. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Clearfield County Fair Queens for a Cause charity supporting the Children’s Miracle Network, along with Allison Colna and Brody Lanich, two local children fighting back against childhood cancer.
As in prior years, an autograph session will be held during half time. Two lines will be established at opposite ends of the gymnasium, each consisting of three tables with at least three Steelers signing.
Fans are encouraged to bring their favorite Steelers’ item to be autographed. Security personnel will be on duty to ensure a smooth and speedy transition through the lines.
Due to strict time restrictions, no photographs will be permitted while going through the autograph lines. A concession stand will also be available.
Since the Queens for a Cause charity’s inception in 2002, more than $160,000 has been raised in support of the Children’s Miracle Network and other other local causes.
