The Ducks announced today that the Wild Wingers Kids Club and Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) have partnered for the second annual Kits for Kids Donation Drive, giving Ducks fans the opportunity to purchase Kids Club kits for CHOC patients for the holidays.
“This is a great way for our fans to give back to the community,” said Ducks Director of Fan Development Matt Savant. “We’re hoping to build on the overwhelming response from last year’s drive to help make the holiday season brighter for children receiving care at CHOC.”
Kids club kits can purchased for $20, which will be personally delivered by Ducks players to CHOC patients during their annual holiday team visit on Dec. 20. As a token of gratitude, those who donate two Kids Club kits will receive an autographed picture of a Ducks player. In addition, all donors who purchase five kits will be automatically entered into a drawing to meet Ducks goaltender J.S. Giguere and left wing Chris Kunitz after an upcoming home game at Honda Center. As a grand prize, those who donate 10 or more kits will be entered into a drawing to win a party suite for the club’s contest versus the San Jose Sharks on March 28, 2008.
CHOC patients receiving Wild Wingers Kids Club kits will enjoy a membership that includes many benefits. The kit contains one ticket voucher to a select 2007-08 Anaheim Ducks home game, a Kids Club t-shirt and hat, a Ducks jersey backpack, a Duck call and an official Kids Club calendar. In addition, every member receives a Wild Wingers Kids Club ID Duck Tag, which provides discounts to Adventure City, Aquarium of the Pacific, Discovery Science Center, Newport Sports Museum, Hockey Giant and much more. The Kids Club will culminate the season by holding its annual End of the Year Party with a special appearance by Kunitz.
