Happy holidays, Kings fans! It’s that time of year again – ‘Tis the season to be jolly! The Kings showed on Wednesday night there are many reasons to be happy right now.
Fans were loud and cheerful leaving ARCO Arena after the Kings wiped out the Wizards, which was perfect timing with Saturday’s game against the Miami Heat up next! The Heat are a great team, but I believe our Kings have what it takes to get a win! While I sit here, anxiously waiting for our next game, I can think of many other reasons to be jolly here in Sacramento.
Off the court, we have been spreading holiday cheer throughout the community. The Sacramento Kings Dance Team took part in the annual Thanksgiving Day Dinner along with many members of Maloof Sports & Entertainment and Wells Fargo. To top off our fans’ Thanksgiving experience, those at St. Paul Baptist Church were able to interact and take pictures with Kings players and SKDT members Carly, Gina, Heather and me. It’s always a nice feeling to give back to the community in a way that will be remembered. I believe everybody should be able to enjoy their Thanksgiving, and the Kings Dance Team always enjoys lending its hands to help make a difference.
Speaking of making a difference, Katie, Kelly, Nicole and I recently took part in Celebrity Bell Ringing at Loehmann’s Plaza to benefit the Salvation Army. A simple donation, no matter the amount, helps make a difference in our community. Being involved throughout the Sacramento region and around such giving people reassures why this is my favorite time of year!
The fun doesn’t stop there. The SKDT has some special news to share with fans…Our Kings Dance Team calendar release party is set for December 17.
Yes, there will be a calendar out this month, which is perfect timing for the holidays! We are so excited to see the final product, because like you, we have no idea what photos were chosen, who has been picked for each month or who will be our 2010-11 cover Dance Team member! We worked really hard to make a calendar fans will love. Each member of our team is beautiful, and this calendar captures each Dance Team members’ individual beauty. So keep an eye out for the upcoming calendar, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
Life is short so please remember to give to those who need a little extra help, cherish your family and friends and be thankful for everything in your life during the holiday season. I hope everyone’s holiday is filled with love, joy and my favorite, humor.
