As part of the evening, PENTA Communications, Inc. held a “Stars for Wishes” campaign. For a $5 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, PENTA offered donors blue star flashing necklaces and a total of $500 was raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“We were pleased to have an opportunity to support our local hockey team, help the Make-A-Wish Foundation and provide a fun evening for clients and their employees to bring their families out for a night of entertainment.” said Deborah Penta. “We hope to do more of this in the future.”

“Every time we associate with a Penta-sponsored event it is a success for everyone involved. The prospect of connecting with the Sharks and Make-A-Wish in tandem had our staff super motivated,” said Grafton Suburban Credit Union President Ed Lopes.

Nearly 100 people from the Westborough High School participated. “The business students of Westborough High School (WHS) had a terrific time at the Worcester Sharks game. The students are very grateful for the generosity of Deborah Penta and her unfailing support of the business department,” said WHS Business teacher Darrell Potosnak.

The Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA) sent 65 employees to the event.

“Our employees enjoyed the game and on behalf of the WRTA and RTA Transit Services we want to thank Penta Communications for this wonderful benefit,” said John Carney, general manager of the RTA Transit Services, Inc.

While the Sharks ultimately lost 6-1 to the Bruins, the night was still a “win” for everyone who attended and for the Make-A-Wish Foundation that will receive a surprise donation of $500 this week.
