FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sacramento Kings, Quest, and Southwest Airlines Host Trip to the California Science Center

Sacramento, CA: May 4, 2001 — The Sacramento Kings, Quest, and Southwest Airlines will be flying 17 students to the California Science Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, May 5, 2001, as a part of their "Ticket to the Future" program.

Students were selected for excelling in both academics and citizenship. The 6th grade students attend Elder Creek Elementary School in the Sacramento City Unified School District and participate in the Avondale-Glen Elder Weed and Seed Program. Avondale-Glen Elder Weed and Seed is a community partnership between various private and public entities to create positive and aggressive change in their neighborhood. Elder Creek Elementary School is considered one of the six poorest schools in the district and for most of these students, it will be their first experience on an airplane.

The students will fly down to Los Angeles courtesy of Southwest Airlines. Arriving in Los Angeles at 10:30a.m., the winners will be treated to the IMAX movie: Journey to the Amazing Cave, and receive a VIP tour of the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Dinner at the Hard Rock Café concludes the day before the students fly back to Sacramento in the evening. Each student will also receive a Sacramento Kings 2001 NBA Playoff Shirt and a Quest duffel bag filled with various gifts.

"This is another great example of the Kings organization helping kids have a educational experience they wouldn’t otherwise have," said Avondale-Glen Elder Neighborhood Weed and Seed Steering Committee Chair and Sacramento City Council member Dave Jones. "My thanks to the Kings, Southwest Airlines, and Quest for taking the Avondale-Glen Elder Neighborhood Weed and Seed kids to the California Science Center."

This trip is one component of the Sacramento Kings "Ticket to the Future" program partnered by Southwest Airlines and Quest. The program encourages youth to understand the connection between technology, travel and education and to imagine the possibilities in the future. Earlier in this season, Sacramento students had the opportunity to enter a "Ticket to the Future" essay contest. Over 450 students participated with twenty awarded computers for their writing efforts and the top three winners received a visit from a Sacramento Kings player at their school.

This program continues the Sacramento Kings ongoing commitment to make a positive and meaningful difference in the lives of people in need and at-risk in the Sacramento region.
