PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) –    Robin and Lee Howatineck live with their 23 year old daughter, Haylee, in North Huntingdon. They hit hard times and ended up getting the power shutoff. For 15 months they struggled, living in the dark before reaching out to Sparkt and KDKA Radio's Marty Griffin.

To get the Howatineck’s electricity back on, Marty contacted Chad Quinn, CEO of the Dollar Energy Fund who helped get the lights back on.
