The Spotlight is on NEPA Miners

Small Business Spotlight AwardedIn October, MetroAction recognized the NEPA Miners by presenting them with the Small Business Spotlight Award, sponsored by First Liberty Bank and Trust. This award recognizes a local small business for their contributions to the community.

The NEPA Miners is a family run business owned and operated by Dan and Michele LaMagna. The NEPA Miners family consists of over 70 volunteers made up of management, coaches, players, cheerleaders, booster club members and interns.

The NEPA Miners Football & Entertainment organization is proud to serve northeastern Pennsylvania with year round community service while providing quality entertainment during their football season.

To show their commitment to the community, the NEPA Miners have sponsored the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, supported the Charlie Wysocki Foundation to raise awareness of mental illnesses, co-sponsored a Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce Business Card Exchange and hosted the only professional tryout in Pennsylvania. The NEPA Miners have also recently formed a Booster Club to strengthen their presence in the community.

As the first league of its kind in our area, the NEPA Miners are looking forward to what the future holds for their team!
