Ducks, Honda Center Serve Thanksgiving Meals

For the past 21 years, La Casa Garcia Restaurant and We Give Thanks, Inc., a nonprofit charitable organization founded by restaurateur and philanthropist Frank Garcia, have been serving free Thanksgiving Dinners to those in need in the greater Orange County region. To accommodate an estimated gathering of over 15,000, Honda Center and the Anaheim Ducks once again joined forces with We Give Thanks, Inc. for this year’s event.

Several Ducks players participated by helping to serve meals; during the event (11 a.m. – 4 p.m.). The day kicked off with an Official Turkey Carving Ceremony at 10:45 a.m.

On behalf of all those participating in this year’s event, a 50-foot by 100-foot holiday card was available for signing in the Honda Center parking lot. The card, which will be flown to Iraq by the United States Marine Corps in the spirit of bringing holiday wishes to our dedicated American service men and women, will first be presented to the The Guinness Book of Records for consideration as the World’s Largest Holiday Card.
