SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes will host Steven Lenhart Chia Pet Night, presented by Cosmopolitan Catering, on Sunday, Sept. 8 when the club hosts the Philadelphia Union at 8 p.m. PT. The chia pet will be available to 2,500 fans at the gates on matchday.
Last year, Cosmopolitan Catering teamed up with the Earthquakes for Lenhart Wig Night. The stadium was filled with blond-haired fans for what was one of the most dramatic games of the season. Lenhart came off the bench and scored the game-tying goal in the 98th minute. He then celebrated with teammate Shea Salinas by donning the wig.
Cosmopolitan Catering co-owners Joe Schumaker and Jake Caputo on Lenhart Chia Pet Night: "Steven Lenhart brings passion, excitement and a never say die attitude to the Earthquakes. As the official catering partner of the San Jose Earthquakes, Cosmopolitan Catering feels he brings the same values both organizations share in our partnership. We are proud to be a partner with the Earthquakes and to sponsor a night that focuses on such a prolific player. Go Lenny and go Quakes!"
Lenhart became a fan favorite in San Jose with his energetic play and iconic blonde locks. He scored a career-high 10 goals in 2012, helping the Earthquakes take home their second Supporters’ Shield trophy. Lenhart joined San Jose in 2011 after a draft-day trade with the Columbus Crew.
