LOS ANGELES (April 9, 2013) — Fans of the defending world champion Los Angeles Kings have a unique opportunity to own a piece of sports history while also supporting a worthy cause. One of an extremely limited number of authentic LA Kings Stanley Cup Championship rings, courtesy of the Kings, in support of their charitable partners, is up for auction now through April 22 on CharityBuzz.com. Proceeds from the sale will benefit two of the Kings’ charitable partners, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and City Year Los Angeles.

Created by world premiere jeweler, Tiffany & Co., the ring is fabricated to the exact specifications of the Stanley Cup Championship rings that were also created for the Kings players. Worth $13,500 at fair market value, the ring features 14 karat white gold with .84 carats in round, brilliant cut diamonds, and will be personalized with the name of the auction winner prominently engraved on the band.

Authentic LA Kings Stanley Cup Championship rings will not be sold in retail outlets.

Additionally, Kings fans may also bid on an “Ultimate Kings Fan Package,” valued at $7,500. The package includes dinner for two with Luc Robitaille, two tickets to the Kings vs. Sharks game on April 27, and a Kings jersey signed by the team.

“The LA Kings have been an invaluable and genuinely compassionate partner over many years through philanthropic funding, widespread community blood drives, regular player visits to cheer up patients, in-game awareness, and so, so much more,” said Richard Cordova, FACHE, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles President and CEO. “They are so generous to share in this historic time with us and make their victory a win for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles as well.”

“Supporting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is one of the most important things we do as an organization,” says Kings President/Business Operations and NHL Hall-of-Famer, Luc Robitaille. “They are our Champions.”

The auction is currently underway, with bidding started at $3,000 and $800 respectively. Both opportunities will close at 12:00 PM PST/3:00 PM EST.
