CRANBERRY, Pa. -- Matt Murray is auctioning off all of his equipment from the Penguins' Stadium Series game in Philadelphia for a good cause.

The auction is for a complete package that will include Murray's mask, pads, glove, and blocker from the game, four tickets to the Penguins' March 24 Pride Night game against the Hurricanes, as well as a meet-and-greet with Murray after the game.

Proceeds will benefit the Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh, an organization that works "to be a vigilant catalyst for change that produces increased opportunities and a high quality of life for the LGBT community in Western Pennsylvania," according to their website.

“I am proud to be the Penguins’ ambassador once again for ‘Hockey is for Everyone,’” Murray said in a team release. “My hope is that auctioning my Stadium Series gear will bring more attention to our Pride Night, and provide extra assistance to the Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh. I look forward to meeting the winning bidders.”

The auction will be held online from Dec. 4 to 11.
