- He’s dumped more popcorn on opposition fans than he’s eaten.
- He’s posed for more photos than a supermodel.
- He’s everyone’s favorite Penguin, but he’s never played a game.
- He’s TUX, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins mascot!
Tux has been performing for fans at Penguins home games since the team’s inaugural 1999-2000 season, bringing smiles and laughs to young and old fans alike.
Besides showcasing his dance moves and handstands at the arena, Tux has also made literally thousands of appearances at community events since joining the team nearly 20 years ago. He’s visited nearly every grade school in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties, has stopped by to bring smiles to kids at local hospitals, and has shared his talents at fundraisers and fairs across the area.
Tux is available to make your next event a big hit. He loves bringing his unique brand of humor to birthdays, corporate functions, banquets, fairs, conventions, and even weddings! If you want to have the big penguin at your upcoming event, drop him a line at Tux@wbspenguins.com to learn more.
(Please send your requests in at least a month in advance, as Tux books all of his own appearances).
