Activations to include Traditional Eat Like a King Event with Sacramento Kings and Stockton Kings
Team Treats Community to Holiday Cheer
Today, the Sacramento Kings announced activations for the 21st Annual Season of Doing Good, presented by Raley’s. This holiday season, the Kings and Raley’s will work together to invest in the community and spread holiday cheer with a multitude of festive events.
“The holidays are a special time of year when the Sacramento Kings spread extra joy and give back to the community,” said Sacramento Kings Chief Operating Officer Matina Kolokotronis. “We look forward to joining our partner Raley’s to help local families in need this holiday season.”
“Raley’s is proud to present the 21st Annual Season of Doing Good alongside the Sacramento Kings,” said Raley’s Executive Director of Community Impact and Public Affairs Chelsea Minor. “Enriching the lives of our community members is a top priority for Raley’s during the holiday season and all year long.”
The season will tip-off on November 16 with the annual Eat Like a King holiday-themed feast hosted at Golden 1 Center. The Sacramento Kings and Stockton Kings players and coaches will serve dinner and eat with over 200 youth and their families from underserved areas of Sacramento. The event will also include interactive games, a DJ, performances by the 916 Crew, a hot chocolate bar and a photo booth.
The team will then host community members for a ride on the California State Railroad Museum Foundation’s Polar Express on November 22. This holiday favorite tradition will include a stop at the North Pole, hot chocolate and cookies, with a special visit from both Slamson and Santa. Each participant will receive a gift bag with a co-branded ornament and Kings blanket. In addition, all participants will be treated to a dinner at a local restaurant following the train ride.
On November 30, as the Kings take on the Indiana Pacers, the team will host a Toy Drive with Les Schwab. The first 200 fans who bring a toy valued at $20 or more will receive two tickets to a future Kings home game.
On December 12, the Kings will partner with SMUD to host a Coat Drive at Cal Expo to benefit Mustard Seed patrons.
Then on December 13, the Kings will host an all-team volunteer opportunity, Purple Bag Project with Crown Royal.
On December 20, the Kings and Raley’s will partner with Delta Dental to bring holiday cheer and treat local seniors to activities, seasonal decorations and a warm holiday meal.
For media interested in covering Season of Doing Good activities, additional details will be sent in advance of the individual events.
All Season of Doing Good event benefactors and audiences are predetermined and selected in collaboration with Raley’s, local nonprofit partners and community organizations.
