Date:9/23/2007

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The sixth annual "Bid for Hope" charity auction, hosted by Pittsburgh Steeler Alan Faneca and his wife Julie, will be held on Monday, October 29 from 7 - 11 p.m. at the Jerome Bettis Grille 36 on the North Shore. Faneca and many of his invited teammates will start the evening off with an autograph session from 7-8 p.m. Throughout the rest of the evening a silent and live auction of sports memorabilia will take place. Local sportscaster Bob Pompeani will serve as special guest auctioneer. All proceeds will benefit A Glimmer of Hope, a Pittsburgh-based non-profit organization that supports breast cancer research.

The $200 per person ticket includes cocktails, hors 'd oeuvres and valet parking. In addition, every attendee will receive a specially designed gift bag including a white-panel football autographed by Faneca, and a special #66 cap. One-of-a-kind auction items include autographed Steelers' jerseys and other team items, as well as other sports items and memorabilia. A complete list of auction items can be found at http://www.glimmerofhopepin.org.

Glimmer of Hope has been supporting breast cancer research studies at Magee-Womens Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA for several years. Dr. Pantini Sukumvanich, a specialized surgeon and gynecologic oncologist specializing in the treatment of gynecologic and breast cancers is currently conducting a pilot study aimed at determining potential markers for increase risk of breast cancer in young (pre-menopausal) women. Sukumvanich said the long-term goal of the study is to prevent breast cancer by identifying the markers and intervening clinically using nutritional and dietary supplements. He is hoping to have results in a year.

According to Diana Napper, president of the Glimmer of Hope Foundation, "We are particularly interested in funding studies on cancer in younger women, making the Magee-Womens Research Institute a natural choice for our support."

Bid for Hope VI is proud to announce our top sponsor, AEP / MEMCO Barge Line.

Tickets for Bid for Hope VI must be purchased in advance by calling 1-800- 454-6746, or by visiting http://www.glimmerofhopepin.org. All proceeds will be donated to A Glimmer of Hope, which has raised over $800,000 for breast cancer research since 1994.
