In partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Greater Los Angeles and “Zebra’s Care,” the Los Angeles Kings are proud to host “Star of the Month” at various home games throughout the season (starting with tomorrow-Wednesday’s game vs. Carolina). Now in its fourth season, the “Star of the Month” program gives each child and his/her family the “royal treatment” which includes game tickets, dinner, a pre-game meet-and-greet with NHL officials as part of the league’s “Zebra’s Care” initiative and the opportunity to watch warm-ups from the penalty box. The “Star of the Month” program serves as a “wish enhancement” for children who have recently undergone treatment for life-threatening illnesses.
In addition, in December the Kings will grant the wish of 5-year-old Will McLeod, whose wish is to meet team captain Dustin Brown
. Kings will host “Kings for Wishes” on Dec. 11 vs. the Minnesota Wild. Those who wish to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation on this night can purchase tickets by visiting www.LAKings.com/wishnight
