I’m not going to even *try* to hide it…The Anaheim Ducks?…CHOC Children’s?…all on the same night? It’s one of my favorite events of the year. I’m an unabashed Ducks hockey fan and adore CHOC Children’s because of all they do for the kids here in OC. (Read more about that here) So when CHOC Night goes down at The Honda Center I have to be there…with a camera guy. (Here’s last year’s CHOC night segment.)
CHOC Children’s partnered with the Anaheim Ducks about 7 years ago and together they’ve helped raise money for OC’s only children’s hospital–CHOC. The Ducks not only host this night at The Honda Center, but the organization also funds their own wing in the hospital and the players participate in a fashion show, put on by the Lady Ducks, annually to raise money.
This year I thought it would be fun to follow CHOC’s 2011 Child Ambassador around for the night. Tommy Conforti is a CHOC patient who was elected CHOC’s very first Ambassador in February. You might remember Tommy from this OC Family TV segment about Radio Lollipop. It was his first hockey game and I’m pretty sure he’s not a solid fan–though he was zonked by the end of the night.
