Great White Bites
Randy\'s Thought of the Day - 12\/11\/2013

I’ll be taking part in one of my favorite events of the year on Wednesday, the Sharks Holiday Assist Party. While the Sharks Foundation has several terrific fundraisers every year, the Holiday Assist Party is a little different.

Healthy Start (headed by Susie Aldrich, wife of Sharks Equipment Manager Mike Aldrich), provides the Sharks a list of families in the Bay Area who are in need of assistance. The families are then distributed to “assisters” who purchase items on their wish list. Most of the parents in these families have jobs, and are working long hours trying to make ends meet, but falling just short. Through this event, these families are given a much-needed reason to smile.

This year the Sharks players, coaches, broadcasters and front office staff will assist 41 such families. Well over 200 people will attend a party featuring a photo booth, ice skating, arts & crafts, cookie decorating, dinner and last but not least, gift giving.

I’m proud to be associated with a special group of broadcast professionals who put on our telecasts each and every game night on Comcast Sportsnet California. For several years the “people in the TV truck” have pooled resources to assist one of these families in need. Wednesday we will have the honor of meeting our family, getting to know them a little bit, and helping them in the small way we can to make sure that their holiday is just a little bit brighter. What a privilege.

In our business there are many special moments like when the Sharks win a big game or when a particular broadcast goes very well. But the experience of being part of the Holiday Assist Party tops them all.
