PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Businesses of all kinds are struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.

That certainly does not exclude Broadway and local theaters all across the country.

Today, 4-year-old Lizzle sold lemonade in the Strip District as a way to help theaters recover from the pandemic.

“Lizzie’s Lemonade” is raising money for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and the Actors Fund Benefit in New York.

Her parents said she came up with the idea after asking them how she could be a hero.

“It’s overwhelming how proud we are of her that she would think about others in this way,” Ben and Jessica Neu, Lizzie’s parents said. “We’ve always tried to teach our kids the importance of caring for others, but for her to come up with this all on her own, and for her to come up with this and be her initiative, is amazing.”

Those wanting to help these causes can donate to Lizzie on the Venmo app – @Lizzies-Lemonade.

Penguins fire 3 assistants following quick playoff exit

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins’ qualifying round loss to the Montreal Canadiens cost assistant coaches Sergei Gonchar, Jacques Martin and Mark Recchi their jobs.

The team announced on Wednesday it would not renew the contracts of all three assistants. The move came less than a week after the fifth-seeded Penguins fell to the 12th-seeded Canadiens in four mostly lifeless games. The contracts for the coaches originally expired at the end of June but were temporarily extended for the playoffs.

General manager Jim Rutherford promised significant changes after Pittsburgh dropped its opening-round postseason series for the second straight year. While head coach Mike Sullivan — who guided the team to consecutive Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017 — will stick around, he will have to move forward with a new staff in place.

“We are in the process of conducting a review of our organization because we have underperformed in the playoffs the last few years,” Rutherford said. “We just thought we needed to change the dynamic of our coaching staff. We have very high standards here in Pittsburgh, and we want to continue competing for Stanley Cups. The message to our fans is that ‘We are not rebuilding, we’re re-tooling.’”

Martin joined the Penguins in 2013 as an assistant under Dan Bylsma following head coaching stints in St. Louis, Ottawa, Montreal and Florida. Martin moved to an advisory position in June 2014 but returned to the bench shortly after Sullivan was hired in December 2015.

Gonchar, who played 20 years in the NHL as a defenseman — a run that included winning the Stanley Cup with the Penguins in 2009 — became a full-time assistant for Pittsburgh shortly after the franchise won its fifth Stanley Cup in 2017.

Recchi, a three-time Cup winner during his 22-year career, joined Pittsburgh’s organization in 2014. He was promoted to assistant coach when Rick Tocchet left in 2017 and was in charge of a power play that struggled during the season despite having Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.
