On Wednesday, the LA Kings hosted the first-ever Holiday Festival, where thousands of season ticket members and fans headed to STAPLES Center for a night of festivities.
The expanded festival, which replaced Meet the Players, gave members the opportunity to maximize their experience.
Fans could make donations to the Kings Care Foundation in order to meet as many players as they’d like and truly make the most of their time at the Holiday Festival.
At STAPLES Center, fans could tour the Kings and Lakers locker rooms, bid on special signed items, purchase special game-used gear, as well as meet members of the Kings, Ontario Reign and the FOX broadcasting team.
One lucky fan, Troy, scored the Shot on Goal contest, winning $10,000 to put towards his 2019-20 season tickets!
“There was no shortage of fun ways spend your time at the LA Kings Holiday Festival, from meeting LA Kings players and personalities to the Shot on Goal contest and all the fundraising in between,” said Jen Pope, Vice President, Kings Care Foundation.
“Best of all, while fans were maximizing their experience at the event by browsing Garage Sale treasures or making their way through multiple player photo and autograph lines, they were supporting the Kings Care Foundation.”
Attendees of the Holiday Festival were the also first to see and have access to the new Charity Duffel Bags!
These limited-edition duffel bags were made from upcycled LA Kings vinyl banners that previously hung across STAPLES Center. Fans could choose between Starter Fan Packs or upgrade to the Ultimate Fan Pack for a complete LA Kings fan kit!
The annual Garage Sale invited attendees to select from items starting as low as $1 from the current season and past teams. There were hundreds of unique items, including replica sticks, signed player cards, giveaways, player gear, game-used equipment and much more.
All in all, fans came together to raise over $145,000 towards the Kings Care Foundation.

Jack Campbell gave out signatures AND free hair tips to all Season Ticket Members.
Plus, Adrian Kempe made the evening extra Swede.
The real star of the festival, however, was Eddie Thompson, Nate Thompson‘s pup. If Bailey is ever unavailable, we think we’ve found the Kings new mascot.
