The annual event raises money for children’s charities in the Valley. Coyotes players wore special jerseys which were later auctioned off and the players served fantastic food to all fans and corporate partners in attendance.
Coyotes players, coaches and management participated along with Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.
"The players are always on board and excited about this night and Fleming’s is a fantastic sponsor that helps host this event for us,” said Kimberly Trichel, Executive Director of Coyotes Charities. "All of the money raised goes to Arizona non-profits that really help children. We focus on the areas of education, cultural arts, sports, and healthcare."
The Coyotes players also enjoyed themselves at the event, as it offers a rare opportunity to mix and mingle with the fans.
"This is a great event because it’s an opportunity for everyone to see the personalities of the guys," captain Shane Doan. "It’s fun to interact with fans on more of a personal level."
