For Comcast Cares Week this April, employees of Comcast-Spectacor participated in a Philabundance Food Drive, Scanlon Ice Rink Cleanup and Blood Drive. Almost 250 employees took part in these various volunteer efforts, and 2707 lbs of food were donated to Philabundance—enough to provide meals for about 3,000 people in need.
Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko and Flyers Alumni Bob "Hound" Kelly instructed a Philadelphia Flyers Hooked on Hockey Clinic at Paley PAL (Police Athletic League) Center in the Germantown-section of Philadelphia on April 24, 2013. Luukko will receive the prestigious PAL Award on May 8 in recognition of his commitment to community initiatives. The event also included an unveiling of the most recent renovations to the center, including plumbing upgrades and other amenities, which were done with the help of a donation from Comcast-Spectacor Charities.
In an effort to help those affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston, the Philadelphia Flyers and Comcast-Spectacor Charities honored both victims and courageous first responders during the Flyers vs. Bruins game on April 23, 2013. A donation was made to The One Fund Boston from the Flyers Charities 50/50 Raffle, as well as an online game-used and signed jersey auction. The charitable portion of the 50/50 Raffle given to One Fund Boston was $42,798, half of the largest jackpot in U.S. history. Special edition game-worn Flyers jerseys with Boston Strong patches sewn on were also auctioned off online. The total amount donated to One Fund Boston from the 50/50 Raffle and online jersey auction was over $66,000.
