The LA Kings and the Kings Care Foundation announced the club will use the proceeds from tonight's Taste of the South Bay event to purchase emergency safety kits to equip South Bay classrooms.
The announcement was made at Shade Hotel in Redondo Beach as the Kings hosted Taste of the South Bay presented by The DOMO Group.
"We started this program last year in Redondo Beach and are thrilled to be able to bring these tools to the kids of El Segundo, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach," said Kings President and Hockey Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille. "Our goal would be to make sure all of the kids and teachers in Los Angeles have access to such an important tool."
Tonight's event is expected to raise approximately $50,000. To date, Taste of the South Bay has raised nearly $400,000 since its inception.
