LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles City/County Native American Indian Commission is seeking sponsorships to send low-income families to a NHL game between the LA Kings and the New Jerseys Devils.
Thursday, November 21 is the date set for the game that is billed as Native American Pride Night.
“This is not a fundraiser. All funds and tickets will be distributed to low income families with attention on children who are in the Indian Child Welfare Act program,” said Ronald Andrade, director of the Los Angeles City/County Native American Indian Commission.
The Commission is seeking financial support so that more American Indian living in the Los Angeles area can attend the game.
The LA Kings have two Native players on its team: Dwight King, Métis, and Jordan Nolan, Ojibwe.
Please help so that we can take as many youth as possible to the game. It is also important to note that we have two American Indians playing for the Kings and the youth will be able to get signed cards of the players.
All tickets or funds donated are considered to be tax deductible.
“We recognize that many of you are not in the area but you may have family or friends who will enjoy the event so purchase any amount of tickets as a donation,” commented Andrade.
Please contact Ron Andrade at 805-404-1490 or Stephen Fiamengo, senior account executive, LA Kings at 213-742-7205 for information.
The game is scheduled for 7:30 pm, PST.
