PITTSBURGH—In recognition of leadership in fundraising for United Way of Allegheny County, a Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) employee will participate in a field goal contest during halftime of an upcoming Pittsburgh Steelers game. Shelly Hawkins-Lee, administrative assistant, CCAC Business and Administration, and her husband, John (Tim) Lee, both of Coraopolis, will represent CCAC at the Steelers vs. Carolina Panthers Exhibition Game on Thursday, August 30, at Heinz Field. 

Every year, United Way of Allegheny County, in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Steelers, hosts a community kick-off as a way to thank those organizations and businesses who have been involved with the United Way Campaign. In turn, a representative of each organization or company receives tickets to both dinner in the Heinz Field VIP tent and the game. The representatives are also given the chance to come onto the field to compete in the field goal kicking contest. Ms. Hawkins-Lee plans to delegate CCAC’s field goal attempt to her husband. 

A CCAC employee for 30 years, Hawkins-Lee was a member of the internal CCAC committee overseeing the college’s most recent 2012 United Way Campaign drive. Thanks to the committee’s efforts and the generosity of CCAC employees, the college’s drive contributed a total of $32,900 to the campaign. 

In addition to CCAC’s participation, representatives from Pittsburgh Public Schools and Carnegie Mellon University will also be competing.
