ALTOONA, Pa. -- Sheetz is partnering with the Pittsburgh Steelers to support the Special Olympics and give customers the chance to win breakfast with Steelers linebacker James Farrior.
The grand prize is a private breakfast at the Steelers training facility in Pittsburgh where one lucky fan will enjoy talking with Farrior, getting to know him and asking questions about what it's like to play for the five-time Super Bowl Championship Steelers, the company reported.
Starting now and continuing until Dec. 27, customers can visit www.sheetz.com or www.steelers.com and enter to win. Customers can also get information at any participating Sheetz location to learn how to enter.
Additionally, during this time, Sheetz will donate 10 cents from every specialty made-to-order Sheetz Bros. Coffeez drink purchase to the Special Olympics, the company reported.
"Everyone at Sheetz loves the Special Olympics. There's no other way to say it," Louie Sheetz, executive vice president of marketing at Sheetz Inc., said in a statement. "We love everything they stand for—the goodwill and sportsmanship the games foster and the opportunities they provide for people to realize their potential—not just in sports, but in life."
Sheetz has been a proud supporter of the Special Olympics since 1992. To date, more than $1.5 million has been given to Special Olympics Pennsylvania. In addition, $500,000 in financial and in-kind contributions has been donated to Special Olympics programs in Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina.
Sheetz employees have produced and catered thousands of lunches for Special Olympics' events and actively volunteer their time to help with summer and winter games.
"Watching athletes develop lasting friendships and enjoy life is the biggest reward for anyone who gets involved in Special Olympics," said Sheetz. "We are grateful that the Steelers have offered their support for building awareness of this wonderful organization."
