ActivePDF the leading provider of innovated PDF automation tools and digital transformation solutions, has partnered with the Anaheim Ducks and the Anaheim Ducks Foundation as the presenting sponsor of the ActivePDF Community Champion Award.

ActivePDF and the Anaheim Ducks Foundation will honor the ActivePDF Community Champion at specified Anaheim Ducks Sunday home games at Honda Center during the 2019/20 NHL season. At the end of the season, ActivePDF will donate $10,000 on behalf of the Community Champions to the Anaheim Ducks Foundation.

ActivePDF began recognizing the Community Champions on October 20, 2019, presenting them with a personalized Anaheim Ducks jersey by ActivePDF CEO Tim Sullivan or Global Marketing Director Derek Gerber.

“It’s one thing to sponsor an award by simply slapping a company logo on it, it’s quite another feeling to present the award personally to an individual, shake their hand, and pump up the crowd with an inspiring story,” says Sullivan. “This is why we’re so excited every time we get in front of the Ducks fans to introduce the latest ActivePDF Community Champion. You can really feel an energy shift in the stadium when these local heroes are recognized and their stories are told on the jumbo screen. I speak for everyone at ActivePDF when I say that we as a company, we feel the excitement in creating an environment that these local heroes deserve. ActivePDF Community Champion recognition brings out the best in everyone and we’re extremely proud to have the support of the Anaheim Ducks and Anaheim Ducks Foundation in this endeavor.”
