In May of this year, Charlotte celebrated her 9th birthday party at the San Diego Ice Arena. We noticed at the beginning of her party that she didn’t have any presents to put into her big birthday present bag so we went up and asked her why and her response warmed our hearts. Charlotte told us that she asked all of her friends and family members to give her money for her birthday instead of presents. Charlotte took all $125 that she got for her birthday and donated it to Helen Woodward Animal Shelter. Charlotte plans to be a Veterinarian when she grows up and her love for helping animals is what inspired her to do this. Charlotte loves to play ice hockey and volleyball and we get the pleasure of having her on one of our very own hockey teams right here at the San Diego Ice Arena! Charlotte you are a true super star!
