Ducks to Host Shea Center Night Sunday vs. Chicago
The Ducks will highlight The Shea Center this Sunday (Feb. 26) when the club takes on the Chicago Blackhawks at Honda Center (note special 4:05 p.m. start time). The therapeutic riding center, located in San Juan Capistrano, is dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities through horse-related programs. Throughout the game, fans will have the opportunity to learn more about The Shea Center through recognition of a community hero and other in-game elements, including a ceremonial puck presentation. In addition, proceeds from all Ducks-autographed items available in Sunday’s in-game silent auction (Section 213) will benefit The Shea Center (through the Anaheim Ducks Foundation).

Following warm-ups (approx. 3:45 p.m.), the Ducks will recognize Shea volunteer Jim Washburn with the Community Hero Award. Washburn has volunteered at The Shea Center since 2007 and has donated thousands of hours as a riding lesson instructor and physical therapy volunteer. In addition, the Ducks will also highlight The Shea Center with a ceremonial puck presentation. Shea Center rider Paul Fischer (9 yrs. old), who has been training at The Shea Center for five years, will receive a special ceremonial puck on the ice from Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf. Children who ride at The Shea Center will also take part in in-game elements such as Zamboni riders and Honorary Duck, Stick Boy and Power Player opportunities.

Sunday’s in-game silent auction will benefit The Shea Center. Available items include a player-autographed Anaheim Ducks puck set, a 2011-12 team-autographed jersey and stick, as well as an autographed stick by 2011 NHL Hart Trophy-winner (MVP) Corey Perry. Fans are encouraged to stop by Section 213 any time after doors open (2:30 p.m.) to place bids on the Ducks merchandise available. The silent auction will close following the second intermission.

With more than 200 weekly volunteers and just 12 full-time staff, The Shea Center’s focus is on helping children and adults with special needs increase the strength, balance, independence and self-esteem of the more than 500 clients seen each year. Based on horse-related activities, The Shea Center offers physical, occupational and speech therapy services in a unique equestrian environment.
