AEG’s LA Kings raised more than $175,000 for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles at the club’s 19th annual Golf Tournament earlier this week. The event marked the unofficial kick-off of the Kings' regular season, which starts at STAPLES Center on Friday, Oct. 5 against the San Jose Sharks.
LA Kings players, coaches, alumni and executives were paired with guests at the Industry Hills Golf Club at Pacific Palms Resort for the day-long tournament which featured giveaways or games at each hole from partners including adidas, Mason Payne Cigars, Knott’s Berry Farm, LA Galaxy, Ontario Reign, Blaze Pizza, Terranea Resort, Melissa’s Produce and more.
"Each year we have the opportunity to bring our players, broadcasters and alumni together with team partners and fans in support of the incredible work of Children's Hospital Los Angeles," said Jen Pope, LA Kings Vice President of Community Relations and Team Services.
"Through this tournament we are able to support the hospital's Department of Pathology, which now meets close to 100 percent of its blood product needs," said Pope.
The LA Kings Golf Tournament is proudly supported by adidas, HiDow, United Rentals, Coyote Promotions and Executive Transportation Services.
