|Photo Gallery: Shop with a Jock
On December 13th, twenty children from the Children’s Diabetes Foundation received a special treat when they joined the Avalanche for some holiday shopping. Avalanche players Andrew Raycroft, Darcy Tucker and Ben Guite were on hand to help spread some holiday cheer at the Shop with a Jock event at the Dick’s Sporting Goods store at CornerStar Shopping Center.
Each child received a $100 gift card courtesy of Dick’s Sporting Goods and had the opportunity to buy gifts for their families. Raycroft, Tucker and Guite assisted the children with finding the items on their shopping lists. The event concluded with autographs and pictures with the players.
The Children's Diabetes Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting research in childhood diabetes and to provide the best possible clinical and educational programs for children with this disease.
