2016 Los Angeles Clippers Gameday 1

STAPLES CENTER fundraising opportunities and experiences for our charity partners and community members. STAPLES Center and L.A. LIVE serve as the hub for community engagement during the holiday season, and supports employee volunteerism activities such as a company-wide Day of Service. Through a partnership with City Year, employees volunteer to refurbish local public schools by providing supplies, painting, cleaning and gardening services. During AEG’s Season of Giving, held throughout the month of December, the Foundation spotlights more than two dozen local charities and community-based organizations and provides non-profits a platform to collect food, hold blood drives, register volunteers, educate the public and sign up mentors with the Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE, its ice skating rink, STAPLES Center and the holiday tree as the backdrop. STAPLES Center has been designed with the fans of Los Angeles in mind. Guests who attend events are treated to the finest entertainment experience imaginable. The arena has free public Wi-Fi powered by Verizon, over 840 Toshiba flat panel televisions and (as part of a specially designed $1.5 million facility sound system) 675 separate speakers outside of the seating area, so fans never miss any of the sights or sounds of a STAPLES Center event. Also featured is a $2 million specialty lighting package and other state-of-the-art amenities. In 2010, STAPLES Center unveiled their brand new $10 million center-hung video LIVE 4HD Scoreboard specially designed for the arena. Along STAPLES Center’s five concourses are 23 refreshment stands offering a variety of dining choices including the Smokehouse BBQ on City View Terrace, a one-of-a-kind outdoor dining experience with a spectacular view of L.A. LIVE and of the downtown Los Angeles skyline. The TEAM LA store located on the main concourse is a retail store featuring official merchandise from the teams and events that call STAPLES Center home with satellite locations throughout the facility and L.A. LIVE. Finally, the arena provides 55 public restrooms including three “family” restrooms. Perhaps the greatest emphasis throughout STAPLES Center’s development has been the recruitment and training of its guest services staff. The STAPLES Center experience is second-to-none from the entertainment environment to the staff’s commitment to making every guest’s visit a memorable one. Never before has an arena had the amenities, features and commitment to quality service that STAPLES Center offers to the fans and the City of Los Angeles. STAPLES Center continues to set new standards for the arena industry. Located directly across the street from STAPLES Center is L.A. LIVE, a one-of-a-kind sports, and entertainment district in downtown Los Angeles. The four million square foot destination features Microsoft Theater, The GRAMMY Museum, Conga Room and The Novo, giving L.A. LIVE ‘more music per square foot’ than anywhere else in the world. The district offers a rich mix of local, regional and national restaurants including Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill, Rosa Mexicano, Yard House, Katsuya, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Rock ‘N Fish, Lawry’s Carvery, Live Basil Pizza, Tom’s Urban, Smashburger, Red Mango, Triple 7 China Bar & Grill, Starbucks and BOCA at the Conga Room, WP24 and others. L.A. LIVE also features 100,000 sf special events deck and the famous Lucky Strike Lanes and Lounge. The development also includes a 54-story, 1001-room convention “headquarters” hotel (combining JW Marriott and The Ritz-Carlton brands and 224 luxury condominiums – The Ritz Carlton Residences at L.A. LIVE.), the 14-screen Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE Stadium 14 theatre featuring the Premier House, along with ESPN’s West Coast broadcast headquarters.
