October 29th 2012 – Bid for Hope IX:

Heath Miller and his wife Katie will once again host this worthwhile event. This year the festivities will take place at Jergels Rhythm Grill in Warrendale.

It is sponsored through A Glimmer of Hope and proceeds benefit the “Under Forty Breast Cancer Study”.

Kickoff begins at 7:00 PM and ends at 11:00 PM.  The Autograph Session with Heath and his teammates is from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

The evening also includes both a live and a silent auction so fans can bid on autographed Steelers memorabilia, and great food and drinks!

This year’s Special Guest Auctioneer is Bob Pompeani, Sports Director for KDKA.

“It’s for a great cause,” said Heath Miller, whose cousin successfully battled the disease. “It’s something that has been a part of the Steelers for a while now. It’s such a good thing. It’s important for us to contribute.”

Heath will be accompanied by some of his teammates – Previous attendees have included teammates Ben, Brett Keisel (above signing autographs at the 2011 event), and Troy Polamalu. Also, it’s not unusual for former teammate Alan Faneca, who previously hosted the event, to return to Pittsburgh to join the cause as well.
