From the Panther Club.....


We are almost a week away from kickoff of the 105th Backyard Brawl. Over the course of the next week the Panther Club and the Mountaineer Athletic Club will be going head to head in the Backyard Brawl Giving Challenge. The challenge is to see which school’s donors can rally to support their teams more through gifts to their respective school’s scholarship fund between Wednesday, August 24 and Game Day September 1 at noon.

To participate and help us win the inaugural challenge, we are asking you to make a donation of $5 or more to the Student-Athlete Success Fund between August 24 and September 1. All donations made during the Backyard Brawl Giving Challenge will help provide Pitt student-athletes with the resources they need to excel athletically and in the classroom. All gifts are tax deductible and will count for Panther Club membership and priority points.

By stepping up and supporting this challenge, you will help show that our community rallies to support our student-athletes better than West Virginia! To show our appreciation for your participation, any donor who makes a gift during the Backyard Brawl Giving Challenge will receive a commemorative Backyard Brawl pin.

If you have any questions about the Backyard Brawl Giving Challenge or would like to make a gift over the phone, please contact our office by email at, or by phone at (412) 648-8889.

Again, thank you for your support and Hail to Pitt!
The Panther Club

Is Pitt still leading? It was pretty close a couple of hours ago.
