PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - PiratesFest 2019 is returning to PNC Park in January. The Pirates announced Wednesday the annual winter fan fest will be Saturday, January 26 and is FREE to the public.

The Pirates also announced that 100 percent of the proceeds from the ticketed autograph sessions with former and current players will be donated to the Pittsburgh Fraternal Order of Police’s “Injured Officers Fund” and the recently formed “Public Safety Support Trust Fund.”

“As we continue to pray for those we lost in this indescribable tragedy, we must also continue to honor their memory by committing to a kinder, more inclusive and more loving future,” said Pirates Chairman Bob Nutting in a statement. “Our community should take great pride in the fact that Pittsburgh is once again leading the country by demonstrating to our nation how we can stand together as one.”

In addition to the funds raised from the autograph sessions, fans will have opportunities to donate throughout PNC Park during the day to help support first responders.
