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.

Sportswriter Jessica Ghawi Among 12 Killed in Denver Dark Knight Massacre

Last night in Denver, a masked gunman opened fire on moviegoers during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises. Twelve people were killed. Among the dead was sportswriter Jessica Ghawi, who, as Deadspin notes, blogged about sports for Busted Coverage under the name Jessica Redfield. Tragically, the shooting that took her life was the second Ghawi had been in the middle of in as many months. In June, she was present at the Eaton Centre mall shooting in Toronto that killed one and seriously injured six.

RIP.
