Curve auction to help Griffith Foundation

The Greg and Cathy Griffith Foundation, along with L.R. Webber Associates Inc., will host a silent auction at the Aug. 20 Altoona Curve game.

Baseball fans will enjoy the opportunity to bid on Altoona Curve, Pittsburgh Pirate and Pittsburgh Steeler collectibles at a silent auction during the game.

All proceeds from the auction benefit The Greg and Cathy Griffith Family Foundation to fund pancreatic cancer research.

Attendees are invited to wear purple to promote awareness of pancreatic cancer.

“We look forward to this end of the summer event. With the help of the Altoona Curve, we can fund a cure for pancreatic cancer,” said Cathy Griffith, foundation representative.

Families will enjoy post-game fireworks compliments of L.R. Webber Associates Inc. Tickets are available at the Altoona Curve box office at 943-5400. Game time is 7 p.m., and doors will open at 5:30 p.m.
