COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHTAs the Anaheim Ducks and Honda Center strive to support our community, our commitment relies heavily on nonprofit organizations to carry out programs that address the needs of Southern California. We value community involvement and volunteerism, and encourage our staff members to participate in a variety of opportunities throughout the year.
At the end of every season, the Anaheim Ducks and Honda Center Community Relations Department hold a raffle for all staff members who volunteered at various community events throughout the year. Anaheim Ducks and Honda Center employees earn one entry into the raffle each time that they volunteer. The winners of the raffle receive $500 to donate to a charity of their choice.
Here is an overview of the five charities that our staff winners picked for the 2014-15 Staff Volunteering Raffle:
