CHARITY GAME RAISES $12,000 FOR STETSON FUND

Media All-Stars defeat Raleigh Police Department at the RBC Center

RALEIGH, N.C. – The Carolina Hurricanes, along with the Raleigh Police Department, the Hurricanes Booster Club and members of the local media hosted a charity hockey game between the Raleigh PD BlueLiners and the Triangle Media All-Stars on Sunday at the RBC Center, raising $12,000 for the Tom Stetson Fund. The Triangle Media All-Stars defeated the BlueLiners 8-6 in the game.

“The Hurricanes mean more to the community than just playing hockey,” said Raleigh Police Department Captain Ken Mathias, one of the organizers of the event. “In this case, the entire staff from the players to the members of the Storm Squad and the Booster Club came together and provided the perfect vehicle for coming to the aid of a family in need.”

The event benefited the family of Tom Stetson, a tenured Wake County Emergency Medical Services paramedic who recently passed away due to medullablastoma, or brain cancer. He is survived by his wife and daughter who are overwhelmed with medical bills and living expenses.

The Triangle Media All-Star squad featured Hurricanes assistant coaches Randy Ladouceur and Kevin McCarthy, television color analyst Tripp Tracy, ABC 11’s Ed Crump, WRAL’s Mike Crowley and Mark Roberts, and Margaret Lillard of the Associated Press. Emily Cole, wife of Hurricanes left wing Erik Cole, skated as well as 96 Rock morning man Chopper Harrison. Hurricanes television play-by-play analyst John Forslund served as the emcee for the event. Ron Francis and Sean Hill coached the Media team, while Jeff Daniels and Aaron Ward were behind the bench for the BlueLines.
