Ziggy's Fundraiser Featuring Johnstown Chiefs Alumni Game

For years, Dave Zeigler, more commonly known as “Ziggy” has been a mainstay of the hockey community in Johnstown through his equipment business at the War Memorial Arena and more recently across from the arena on Stonycreek Street in downtown Johnstown. Providing everyone with uniforms, equipment and anything else a player or a team needs for a successful season, “Ziggy” was always there for anyone from the local youth and scholastic programs to the Johnstown Chiefs. Last season, his work for the Pittsburgh Penguins earned him a Stanley Cup ring while working with fellow Johnstown native Dana Heinze.

Last month, our friend "Ziggy" was diagnosed with brain cancer. As he was there for all of us at one time or another to keep us on the ice, it is now time for us to come together for him. With the gracious help of Planet Ice, June 5th will be a special night with the Ziggy's Fundraiser to benefit Dave Zeigler and family.
