At the March 26 home game against the New York Rangers, the Ducks will be hosting OC Animal Care Night to raise awareness for OC Animal Care, an open-admission animal shelter that provides temporary shelter and medical care for lost, owned or stray animals, and opportunities for the adoption of these animals.
Adoptable animals from OC Animal Care will be on-hand for fans to interact with in the Hockey Spot starting at 4 p.m. OC Animal Care also will have an information booth in the Hockey Spot and will be collecting new or gently used towels or blankets, pet toys or pet food to donate to the shelter animals. The Anaheim Ducks Foundation will be holding a silent auction at Section 212 that evening and proceeds will benefit OC Animal Care.
As part of the OC Animal Night activities, the Team Store will be featuring Ducks merchandise for your pets and Cogs for Dog apparel. Ducks forward, Andrew Cogliano has taken his love of animals and created Cogs for Dogs, a program dedicated to raising awareness for the need for animal adoption and rescue at OC Animal Care. On OC Animal Care Night, each Cogs for Dogs apparel and headwear purchase will receive an Andrew Cogliano autographed 5x7 Cogs for Dogs photo. Don't miss your chance to show your pets' support of the Ducks and a portion of the sale of Cogs for Dogs merchandise will benefit OC Animal Care.

To support the Anaheim Ducks Foundation, the Ducks will be selling a commemorative series Surprise Puck Set featuring four limited edition Anaheim Ducks pucks. The fourth puck sale - inspired by Fan Appreciation Night - will be in Section 212 at the home game on Tuesday, April 4, when doors open at 5:30 p.m.. Pucks will cost $30.
Fans will pick an individually wrapped puck at random and receive either a Ducks player-autographed commemorative puck or - for 23 lucky fans - a surprise Ducks player-autographed orange puck. The lucky winners of the Surprise Puck Sale will receive an autographed jersey signed by the player who autographed their puck. In addition to the 23 lucky orange puck winners, there will be one grand prize winner. The fan that selects the SoCal Honda Dealers blue puck will receive a jersey off the back of a Ducks player after the game, courtesy of SoCal Honda Dealers.
On Sunday, March 5, the Ducks and CHOC Children's hosted CHOC Night at Honda Center to help raise awareness and funds for the children's hospital, as the team took on the Vancouver Canucks. Fans had the opportunity to purchase limited edition Choco bears wearing player-autographed mini Ducks jerseys prior to the game at the South Entrance (located between the Anaheim Ducks Team Store and Standing O restaurant) along with special CHOC Night t-shirts.
Fans who attended the game or watched the Prime Ticket telecast were able to donate to CHOC Children's in a number of ways. Texting "CHOC" to "71777" allowed people to make donations to the hospital. Fans in attendance also had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items including team memorabilia and signed Choco bears. Proceeds from the evening's Anaheim Ducks Foundation 50/50 raffle benefited CHOC Children's and CHOC Children's at Mission Hospital.
For the second year, the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings leveraged their rivalry and came together to raise funds for two great causes. Ducks and Kings players wore yellow warm-up jerseys on February 19 at Honda Center to raise awareness and funds for Orange County Ronald McDonald House.
On February 25 at STAPLES Center, Ducks and Kings players also wore special warm up jerseys that were auctioned off during the game. The auction will close on Friday, March 3.
The Lady Ducks created one-of-a-kind holiday ornaments for each of the Ducks players that were auctioned at the December 9th home game against the San Jose Sharks at Section 212.
The Lady Ducks also sold a limited number of Anaheim Ducks Foundation commemorative holiday ornaments.
All proceeds benefited the Anaheim Ducks Foundation.
Each season, the Anaheim Ducks honor United States military personnel and veterans through Military Appreciation Night at Honda Center. This special game night pays tribute to local military and their family members as well as raises awareness for local military nonprofit organization, United Heroes League.
Anaheim Ducks players will show their support by wearing camouflage Ducks jerseys during the pre-game warm up for Military Appreciation Night and following the game, the Ducks camouflage jerseys are autographed and made available for fans to bid on as part of the Ducks online auction at www.anaheimducks.com/auction.
The game night also includes members of the Military and their families from United Heroes League taking part in the evening's in-game activities such as the National Anthem, Color Guard, Honorary Puck Drop, Honorary Duck, Stick Boy, Honorary Power Player, Blue Line Skaters and the Community Hero Award.
