LA Kings Donate $10,000 to Jessica Redfield Scholarship Fund

Classy move on Wednesday by the Los Angeles Kings and Anschutz Entertainment Group as they donated $10,000 to the Jessica Redfield Foundation college scholarship fund.

Denver radio talk show host Peter Burns helped start the fund in memory of Jessica Redfield, the aspiring sports journalist who was murdered in the Colorado movie theater massacre last Friday.

From KDVR:

[Peter] Burns wants Jessica’s lively spirit to live on in the sports journalism community, which is why he is working closely with Jessica’s brother to create the Jessica Redfield Foundation college scholarship.

“We want to give some young lady an opportunity to attend school and chase the dream,” said Burns, ” And we started this about 30 hours ago and we’re at $28,233 dollars which is, I mean, I got goose bumps just doing it”.

Most of the donations have come from individuals wanting to do something positive; however, Peter said a large donation came from the Los Angeles Kings, which donated $10,000.
