Local Wrestling Event to Raise Money for Injured Marine
The fundraising event will be held during the team's match against Peters Township Wednesday and will benefit a hometown hero.
The Peters Township wrestling team will be hosting the "Match for a Marine" event Wednesday during their match against Upper St. Clair to honor an American hero.
All proceeds from the event—including admissions and concession sales—will
be donated to a charitable organization that has been set up by the local VFW to
directly benefit Marine Cpl. Doug Vitale.
Vitale was a wrestler at Kiski and his wife is a graduate of Peters Township High
School. He was seriously injured while on patrol in Afghanistan.
The goal is to have 1,000 people attend the wrestling match and raise $5,000 for his family and his ongoing care.
