The Kings Care Foundation, in partnership with the American Heart Association, celebrated Heart Awareness Month by selling special Red Pucks during Kings February home games at STAPLES Center.
On Saturday, March 8, as the Kings host the Montreal Canadiens, the Kings Care Foundation will conclude the sale of the Red Pucks with a special mystery-autographed Red Puck sale.
The limited edition autographed Red Pucks will be sold for $25 at the Kings Care Booth and on-line at auction.nhl.com.
All proceeds from the sale of the Red Pucks will benefit the Kings Care Foundation and the American Heart Association.
“This is an important initiative for the Kings and the Kings Care Foundation,” said Luc Robitaille, the Kings President of Business Operations. “Partnering with the American Heart Association helps us draw attention to a worthy cause while raising money for local non-profit organizations.”
Added Claudia Keller, Executive Director of the AHA’s Los Angeles Division: “There are so many reasons that it makes sense for the Los Angeles Division of the American Heart Association to partner with the Kings. Not only are we Kings fans, but we believe strongly in what the Kings are doing to get the whole Los Angeles community, and especially our children, more active and more healthy. We’re so grateful to the Kings for designing and selling the Red Pucks because they are a reminder to everyone to live an active lifestyle – and they just happen to make a beautiful keepsake for hockey fans, too.”
