More than $168K Raised During First-Ever ‘Knight of Giving’ Partnership with Enchant Christmas, Vegas Golden Knights and Vegas Golden Knights Foundation
Locals came together at the Las Vegas Ballpark to celebrate hockey and the holidays
Enchant is spreading holiday cheer to our local community with the Vegas Golden Knights and the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation as the popular holiday attraction and beloved hockey team raised more than $168,000 during their first-ever ‘Knight of Giving.’ This charitable evening welcomed all Knights fans and holiday enthusiasts to show their team spirit and come together at the Las Vegas Ballpark, all while giving back to a great cause. Thousands of guests came out to Knight of Giving, many sporting their best team apparel and enjoying all the festivities with the Vegas Vivas! cheer team and Vegas Golden Knights’ mascot Chance. The proceeds benefited the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation, which supports multiple local non-profits and organizations that make a difference in the community every day through youth sports and education, first responders, military, health and wellness, and much more.
“We’re still in awe at the amount of support the Las Vegas community showed during the Knight of Giving at Enchant,” said Kevin Johnston, CEO and founder of Enchant. “It was a sight to see so many VGK fans enjoying the ice skating trail, exploring the maze, taking pictures with Santa and checking out all the cool vendors. We cannot thank the Vegas Golden Knights and the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation enough for the memorable event; we look forward to many more in the future.”
“The Vegas Golden Knights were thrilled to partner with Enchant for a Knight of Giving during the first year of the event,” said Kim Frank, president of the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation. “It was heartwarming to see the support of our fans and how much they enjoyed the festivities at Enchant. We are grateful for the generous donation to the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation and the commitment to giving back to the Las Vegas community through this night.”
