\'April Skate\' Raises More Than $10,000

In honor of their former employee, April Whang, The Rinks - Anaheim ICE held "April Skate" last Sunday at the Ducks' official practice facility.

With Wild Wing on hand, more than 300 skaters turned out for the special event created in memory of Whang, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident. Along with a two-hour open skate session, those in attendance had a chance to bid on game-used sticks from Corey Perry, Scott Niedermayer, Chris Pronger, Jonas Hiller, Bobby Ryan and Teemu Selanne. Also available in the silent auction were a Pronger signed jersey, photo and hat. A raffle featured prizes that included weekend stays at local hotels, hockey sticks and figure skating bags.

The Rinks - Anaheim ICE, MADD, Disney GOALS and Ultimate Skate and Hockey joined together to raise funds during the event to help continue the fight to stop drunk driving, support the victims of violent crime and prevent underage drinking. By the end of the afternoon, more than $10,000 was raised for MADD of Orange County, making the afternoon a major success.

The event was created in memory of April Whang, a long-time employee of the Ultimate Skate and Hockey Pro Shop, located within The Rinks - Anaheim ICE. On Feb. 1, Whang was killed by a drunk driver. A graduate of Sunny Hills High School, April was known for her warm smile and kind spirit. Prior to her passing at the untimely age of 26, Whang had been working at Ultimate Skate and Hockey for three years. A former figure skater, April is survived by her parents, Kyung and Brian Whang, as well as her sister, Kimberly Whang.
