Ducks, Honda Center to Host 20,000 for Free Thanksgiving Dinner
Free Thanksgiving dinners will be served this Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Honda Center. For the past 22 years, La Casa Garcia Restaurant and We Give Thanks, Inc., a nonprofit charitable organization founded by restaurateur and philanthropist Frank Garcia, has been serving free Thanksgiving Dinners to those in need in the greater Orange County region. Honda Center has hosted the event for the past three years, with more than 20,000 expected to attend this Thanksgiving.

“We Give Thanks and Frank Garcia convey the true meaning of Thanksgiving,” said Tim Ryan, CEO of Honda Center.  “We are happy to play a part in an event that gives back to the community in such a significant way.”

The official turkey carving ceremony, which has become an annual tradition, will take place at 10:45 a.m..  Key members of the community, as well as Anaheim Ducks players will be on hand to help with serving of the food. Entertainment and music will also be provided. Parking at Honda Center is complimentary.  Additionally, free transportation to and from the venue will also be provided from La Casa Garcia Restaurant, located at 531 W. Chapman Ave., Anaheim, CA 92802.

“It is a great feeling to know that so many families will have a hot meal to eat on Thanksgiving,” said Frank Garcia, We Give Thanks founder.  “Having the event at Honda Center allows us to serve a tremendous amount of people, and for that we are thankful.”

We Give Thanks, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization [Tax ID# 33-0874658] completely supported by donations from the private sector.

Southern California Smart & Final locations are also participating in the event by awarding customers who purchase a turkey for We Give Thanks a voucher good for two tickets to select Anaheim Ducks home games in the month of November.
