Curve announce VIP packages for all celebrity appearances in 2015
CURVE, PA — A limited number of VIP Meet & Greet tickets are now available for three celebrity appearances by Tony Dorsett, Martavis Bryant, and a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins this summer at Peoples Natural Gas Field. New for 2015, Curve fans have the opportunity to purchase VIP passes to guarantee autograph and photo opportunities during a 45-minute session prior to that night’s game.
Buying a VIP Meet & Greet ticket for these appearance dates not only ensures that the fan will have the opportunity to meet that night’s special guest, but also includes access to a two-hour all-you-can-eat buffet and a ticket to that night’s Curve game.
VIP Meet & Greet tickets are only available for purchase over the phone at 877.99.CURVE or in person at the PNG Field box office. Fans that have already purchased tickets for these dates will have the opportunity to upgrade to the VIP Meet & Greet package.
An inductee of both the College and Pro Football Hall of Fames, Dorsett will appear at PNG Field on Thursday, July 30 as the Curve take on the Akron RubberDucks. As a member of the Pittsburgh Panthers, Dorsett was a three-time All-American and won the Heisman Trophy in 1976. The Rochester, Pa. native spent most of his professional career with the Dallas Cowboys, earning four Pro Bowl selections and was a member of the Super Bowl XII Championship squad. He currently stands as the eighth-leading rusher in NFL history. The meet-and-greet session with Dorsett will take place between 6:00 and 6:45 p.m. and will be available to fans that purchase the $30 VIP ticket.
Bryant, a valuable member of the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver squad this past season, will be at PNG Field on Friday, April 17 as the Curve face Akron. After a three-year collegiate career with the Clemson Tigers, Bryant had a breakout rookie campaign with the Steelers in 2014. After missing the first six games of the season, he hauled in six touchdown passes in the first four games of his NFL career. Bryant was selected as the recipient of the 2014 Joe Greene Great Performance Award as the Steelers’ rookie of the year. The $25 VIP ticket will provide access to a meet-and-greet session with Bryant from 5:00 to 5:45 p.m.
A member of the Pittsburgh Penguins will make an appearance at PNG Field on Monday, August 24 as the Curve face the Reading Fightin’ Phils. The Curve will make an announcement with more specific details soon.

Pay it forward!
Have you ever found yourself in a situation, where someone did a kind deed for you, and thought, I need to do the same for someone else in need when I am able? We found someone that can use a hand! Summer Davis, one of the folks that has volunteered countless hours heading the Diamond Twirlers, an area youth twirling group! Summer gave birth to a son, Dawson, on Monday, January 19 at 32 weeks gestation. Dawson remains in the hospital in Pittsburgh with complications from RH incompatibility. Traveling back and forth to the hospital while caring for their other children along with their regular work and daily routines, paying for fuel, parking costs, hotel rooms and other expenses has been a struggle. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with Dawson's family's expenses while they see the little guy through his struggle and can make it home. You can contribute to Dawson's Fund HERE. Any little bit can help.

Centennial History Book second printing available
NORTHERN CAMBRIA — The Barnesboro Centennial History Book, originally published in 1994, has been reprinted. If you missed out on the original run, you're in luck! The second printing is now available. The original printing of 2,000 copies in 1994 sold out in 1996. The Susquehanna Historical Society of Northern Cambria decided last year to use funds they have saved to have a reprint of the book done.
A limited number of books have been reprinted and have been divided and donated to the Northern Cambria Public Library and Hope Fire Company of Northern Cambria as a long-term fundraiser for those organizations. 100% of the proceeds from book sales will stay with these two non-profit groups.
The books are $40.00 each if picked up and $40.00 each plus $6.00 shipping and handling if ordered by mail.
You may choose which non-profit you wish to support. If you wish to support the fire company, order from Hope Fire Company, PO Box 1217, Northern Cambria, PA 15714 or pick up your copy at Charlson's Furniture (on behalf of the Fire Company). If you would like to support the library, pick up or order your book from Northern Cambria Public Library, 1030 Philadelphia Avenue, Northern Cambria, PA. -- Books are beautiful hardbound books with old photos and history of Barnesboro with sections on businesses, churches, people influential to our town and more. Will make a great addition to your bookshelf, or a great gift.
