Kings to host Fire Relief Night in January
The Kings will host Fire Relief Night at STAPLES Center on Saturday, January 6, as part of the Kings-Nashville Predators game. Before and during the game, local firefighters will be recognized and honored for their service to our community.
In addition, a portion of the proceeds from that night’s event, including the Kings Care Foundation’s 50-50 raffle and silent auction, will benefit local fire victims as well as the LAFD Foundation.
“Our community has really come together during this tough time and we feel it is very important to help those who have suffered tremendous loss due to these devastating fires,” said Kings President and Hockey Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille. “At the same time it is imperative we do our best to say ‘thank you’ to those who battled, and continue to battle, these fires so tirelessly.”
Fans can purchase a special ticket donation package by visiting LAKings.com/firerelief. Any tickets purchased through these donation packages will be matched by the LA Kings for Los Angeles Area Firefighters. For donors wishing not to use their tickets the Kings will also donate those to Los Angeles Area Firefighters.
The Kings’ four-game road trip continues tomorrow, Friday, in New York when the team faces the Rangers beginning at 4 p.m. (PT). The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports West and KABC Radio 790 with pre-game coverage starting at 3:30 p.m. (PT). Kings forward Marian Gaborik is slated to play in his 1,000th NHL regular season game, an NHL milestone.
