The Dallas Stars Foundation was established officially in 1998 to serve as a positive force in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The Foundation's focus is to provide support to the children of the community so that they may lead quality lives and develop into contributing members of society.
This Winter the Dallas Stars Foundation held a "golden puck" fundraiser. During select home games player-signed pucks, beautifully wrapped in red, green or gold decorative foil were on display. For a $30 donation to the Stars Foundation, fans picked a puck hoping that as they removed the decorative foil the signature would be "gold" because a "gold" signature meant an invitation to a Stars practice and a meet n greet with the player.

My husband and I did sit down with her to explain that the probability of picking a "golden" puck was slim but that since all of the money goes to a worthwhile cause it is a win-win situation. We wanted to set a realistic expectation as we have heard stories of long-time season ticket holders never picking one of the sought after "golden" pucks. She said that there was more than one "golden" and she was going to get one!

So, thanks to my daughter, we had the ultimate Stars experience. After watching practice, we thoroughly enjoyed meeting Trevor Daley whose puck she picked. Trevor was so personable and down to earth! He took the time to answer our daughter's questions and sign her Stars jersey, hockey stick and Daley cards with a trusted Sharpie. He didn't have to spend as much time chatting with her as he did, so we really appreciated it!
