WHAT: The Can
Crusade, stressing the importance of recycling aluminum cans, is
passing through the heart of Steelers Nation and making a stop at the
Alcoa Corporate Center on the North Shore. Joe Cahn, self-proclaimed
Commissioner of Tailgating, will participate in an Alcoa employee pep
rally as part of his nationwide awareness campaign to remind people that
using aluminum cans when tailgating is the smartest choice.
Friday, October 7 between 12 noon and 1 p.m.
Front of Alcoa Corporate Center
201 Isabella St.
Pittsburgh, PA 15212
In case of rain, pep rally will be held in the lobby of the Alcoa
Joe Cahn, (aka The Commish), Commissioner of Tailgating
WHY: Traveling in his RV, Cahn brings to tailgate parties around
the country beverages, food and, most importantly, the message that
aluminum cans are the smart container for pre-game parties. The former
owner of the New Orleans School of Cooking, Cahn will prepare and serve
his fabled jambalaya for Alcoa employees and place the first recycled
can on the aluminum can holiday tree (being created by Alcoa employees
as part of the Company’s Month of Service volunteer activities.) The
tree will be displayed at the Carnegie Science Center this holiday
Joining Cahn at the Alcoa pep rally will be representatives of
Pennsylvania Resources Council to showcase “Let’s Tackle Recycling.”
This Alcoa Foundation-sponsored program has significantly increased the
rate of recycling at Heinz Field by giving recycling bags to football
fans as they enter the parking lots. You’ve heard of “cornhole?” These
recycling advocates have the world’s largest version of “Can-hole”
you’ll ever play, making it fun to toss your recyclables where they’ll
have a second life.
This is Cahn’s sixteenth year as the premier tailgating authority. He
has visited every NFL stadium, been to more than 125 college stadiums,
tailgated at nine NASCAR tracks, and mingled with millions of fans. Look
for Cahn tailgating before the Steelers-Titans game this Sunday, October
9, at 1 p.m. EDT.
