Ducks Raise $120,000 for CHOC at Fashion Luncheon
Proceeds will be Dedicated to the Creation of a Ducks-Themed Teen Room on the Oncology Floor at CHOC, One of the Nation’s Top Children’s Hospitals

CHOC President and CEO Kimberly Cripe; Ducks Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Tim Ryan; Event Chair Caroline Marchant; Ducks Right Wing Teemu Selanne and Ducks Senior Vice President/Chief Marketing Officer Bob Wagner.

The Ducks announced that the club raised approximately $120,000 for Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) at the 2008 Anaheim Ducks Wives and Significant Others Fashion Luncheon, which was held Monday in Newport Beach.  Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit the creation of a new teen room on the oncology floor at CHOC.  The sold-out event was attended by over 250 guests, including players, coaches and the club’s executive management team.

“The new teen room is a wonderful announcement for our partnership with CHOC,” said Anaheim Ducks owner Susan Samueli.  “It will symbolize our common goals to support children and families, while facilitating positive change in our community.”

The garden party-themed luncheon was emceed by CBS 2’s Laura Diaz, a 10-time Emmy award-winning journalist in the Los Angeles market and acclaimed comedienne Cindy Burns.  Spring 2008 collections from various American and European designers were presented by Nordstrom in the informal fashion show.  Nordstrom models were joined by three very special guest models; Ducks goaltender J.S. Giguere, center Ryan Getzlaf and right wing Teemu Selanne.

“The Anaheim Ducks Family is committed to supporting the community,” said Event Chair Caroline Marchant, wife of Ducks center Todd Marchant.  “We, as wives and significant others, felt strongly about establishing our own event and are thrilled with the success of our inaugural fashion luncheon benefiting CHOC.  We expect to make this successful event an annual addition to the Ducks community calendar.”

Guests enjoyed a delectable fare of grilled chicken, tomato basil cous cous and roasted vegetables from prominent Orange County-based catering company Crème De La Crème.  The lunch was followed by a dessert trio paired with Korbel brut rosé.  The California champagne company also donated Korbel Natural to the afternoon’s festivities.  Guests also sipped on Sonoma Cutrer-Russian River Ranches chardonnay and Jekel pinot noir provided by Brown-Forman, one of the largest American-owned companies in the wine and spirits business.

Tables for the event cost $2,500 and up, based on level of sponsorship package purchased.  Guests also helped raise funds for CHOC by bidding on a variety of exciting live and silent auctions.  Highlighted live auction items included a meet and greet with Michael Bublé following his concert at Honda Center on May 10, dinner at The Cannery in Newport Beach with J.S. and Kristen Giguere & Todd and Caroline Marchant, and a day of golf with Teemu Selanne at the private Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club.  Top silent auction items included use of Ducks Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Burke’s suite for an upcoming Anaheim Ducks game, a weekend getaway to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and a Hawaiian vacation.
