We Give Thanks
the past nine years, Honda Center has partnered with La Casa Garcia Restaurant
and We Give Thanks, Inc. to serve free Thanksgiving meals to thousands in the
Honda Center parking lot.
For more information, please visit www.wegivethanksinc.org/home/.
Anaheim Ducks players, coaches and front office staff members attend each year,
along with countless other community volunteers, to serve food and spend time
with those in attendance.
The mission of We Give Thanks is to enhance the well-being of the less
fortunate in Southern California by making ongoing efforts and contributions to
their well-being. They carry out this mission through various service
activities. This includes bringing our community together on Thanksgiving Day
for a special holiday meal, entertainment, and meeting place.
Special Olympics of Southern California
Honda Three Stars of the Game: American Honda partnered with the Ducks again this season on the 3 Stars Leaderboard, which recognizes players with points being selected as one of the stars of the game. Honda supplemented their 3 Stars Leaderboard feature with a generous donation to Special Olympics Southern California.
Shown during each Ducks home game on HondaVision, and on the Ducks home and away TV broadcasts, fans were able to follow their favorite players as they accumulated points throughout the season by being selected as one of the 3 Stars of the Game. On Fan Appreciation night, Corey Perry was recognized as this season’s winner!
John Wooden Classic: Established in 1994, the Wooden Classic is an annual tribute to the legendary former coach and the excellence he personified. The event, produced by Anaheim Arena Management, LLC, has a tradition of bringing the nation’s finest college programs to Southern California.
In addition to college basketball, charitable activities surrounding the event have raised over two million dollars, with beneficiaries including Special Olympics Southern California. Over the years, Special Olympics athletes have also participated in a basketball clinic led by UCLA coaches and players and had the opportunity to hear from a variety of UCLA greats including Coach Wooden, Jamaal Wilkes and John Vallely.
