PT match will help wounded veteran

On January 16, the Peters Township wrestling team will be hosting the "Match for a Marine" event 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. Doug was seriously injured while on patrol in Afghanistan, losing both legs and suffering multiple strokes. He is currently in Florida going through rehabilitation. Tunnel to Towers Foundation and The Gary Sinese Foundation combined to build a home for the Vitales that will accommodate all of Doug's needs.
The Peters Township Dance Team, Peters Township School District, VFW Post 764 and the Pittsburgh Leather Neck Detachment have all rallied behind this special night. The goal is to have 1,000 people attend the wrestling  match and raise $5000 for the Vitale family.
