The Crossland Kids won't just be singing the "Star-Spangled Banner" at the Salt Lake Golden Eagles vs. Denver Rangers hockey game Saturday. They'll also be collecting food for the Ronald McDonald House.
Ronald McDonald House, 935 E. South Temple, provides inexpensive rooms for the families of children who are hospitalized in the Salt Lake City area. Families come from all over the country so their children can be treated at Primary Children's Medical Center, Shriner's Hospital for Crippled Children and the University Hospital.Crossland Kids, a musical group sponsored by Crossland Health Care, have been named as goodwill ambassadors by Gov. Norm H. Bangerter. They are asking fans to bring packaged staple items to the hockey game at 7 p.m. Saturday.
The "Kids" are especially excited about the upcoming performance because G.Y. Lin, vice president of the China Foundation, and three other delegates from China will be there.
According to Klatt, Lin and the Crossland Kids are discussing the possibility of a cultural exchange between the United States and China.
