The Arizona Sundogs welcomed 20 boys and 20 girls to Tim's Toyota Center Thursday afternoon with a behind-the-scenes tour of the arena. McWhite's North American Van Lines and the Sundogs' Sponsor-a-Child Giving Tree donated toys during McWhite's third annual "Toys for Kids" promotion.
The Prescott Valley Police Department and Prescott Police Department D.A.R.E. programs provided the children's names from among single-parent or foster care homes On the tour, children got to sound the goal horn and team mascot Burnie presented each with a toy from the Sundogs Team Store. The tour concluded inside the Sundogs dressing room where players surprised participants with teddy bears and toy trucks from McWhite's. The children spent one-on-one time with the players, got autographs and tried on hockey equipment. Photos by Cheryl Hartz.
