For the second season, the Los Angeles Kings and FOX Sports West partnered with Wells Fargo to raise funds for the Partnership for LA Schools, which assists 17 underserved schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
During Game 4 of the Kings-Sharks series Thursday night, FOX Sports West Senior Vice President and General Manager Steve Simpson was joined by Luc Robitaille, President of Kings Business Operations; John Sotoodeh, Wells Fargo Regional President; Joan Sullivan, Partnership for LA Schools CEO; and Bailey, the LA Kings' mascot.
For every goal the Kings scored since Dec. 2, $1000 went directly to teacher development programs across the Partnership.
Within that time the Kings scored a total of 132 goals, and on Thursday Wells Fargo generously rounded up to make the final donation amount $150,000. To date, $300,000 has been donated to the Partnership through the integrated, philanthropic campaign.
