Smile Generation Donates to Children’s Hospital during Ducks vs. Blues Hockey Game

Last Sunday, March 10, the Anaheim Ducks raised funds and awareness for Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC Children’s) by hosting CHOC Night when it played the St. Louis Blues at the Honda Center. The Ducks went on to win the game 4-2. The Smile Generation recognized CHOC night by making a monetary donation to CHOC Children’s for each of the Ducks’ 4 goals. It is the second year the Smile Generation participated in CHOC Night.

Fans attending or watching Sunday’s FOX Sports West telecast were able to participate in the “text to donate” campaign. There was also a silent auction with Ducks memorabilia.

  1. On Dec. 22/14 my daughter and I were visiting from Canada and came to the Aneheim Ducks game.
    We participated in your “pick a puck” for children’s hospital charity.
    Our question is what does tne number 93 on the puck represent?
    Thank you.

    • That is wonderful Mary! We hope you enjoyed the game! 1993 was the year that the Anaheim Ducks franchise was founded, originally as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.
