Los Angeles Kings Wives Join With USC To Bring Children Holiday Cheer
Oct. 25, 2000
With the holiday season just around the corner, the Los Angeles Kings Wives are already at work on their annual holiday Toy Drive presented by Pepsi.
Teaming up with the USC Athletic Department, Kings Wives will be joined by USC student-athletes in collecting toys and distributing raffle tickets on November 7, 9, and 11 before Kings home games at STAPLES Center.
Toys will also be collected at USC Men's Basketball games on November 18 and 21.
All proceeds from the toy collection will benefit Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, Shriner's Hospital for Children, USC Women's and Children's Center, and Centinela Hospital Medical Center.
Fans who donate a new unwrapped toy, will be entered into a drawing to win a team signed hockey stick, a special gift courtesy of Pepsi, or an autographed piece of USC Athletics memorabilia.
In December, USC student-athletes will deliver toys collected from the toy drive to USC Women's and Children's Center, while Kings players and their wives will present gifts to pediatric patients during their annual holiday hospital visits.
For fans who are unable to drop off their toys at the selected games, USC Athletics will continue to collect toys at Heritage Hall until distribution on December 8.
