\'CANES RAISE MORE THAN $150,000 ON \'CASINO NIGHT\'
Tickets and auction benefited the Kids ‘N Community Foundation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Jan. 30, 2007

RALEIGH, NC—
Chris Diamond, Community Relations Manager for the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team’s annual “Casino Night,” held on Sunday at the RBC Center, raised more than $150,000 for the Kids ‘N Community Foundation. The Kids ‘N Community Foundation supports children’s charities and educational programs throughout North Carolina.

The night featured a wine tasting and casino tables with Hurricanes players and coaches serving as the dealers. Games available to play included Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and Texas Hold ‘Em. Each participant received special gaming cash to use during the evening, and had the option of purchasing extra cash with all additional proceeds going to the Foundation.

In addition to the casino games and wine tasting, there was a silent auction and a live auction featuring exclusive autographed merchandise and many other great items.

The Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. With ongoing support from annual special events and the corporate community, the Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other children’s related initiatives. Annually, the Foundation provides cash and in-kind contributions totaling nearly $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina, such as Wake County Communities in Schools, Danialle Karmanos’ Work it Out Program, YMCA of the Triangle Area and the Boys and Girls Club. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities. The Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in our state.

The Carolina Hurricanes take on the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight at the RBC Center (7 p.m., FSN South Hurricanes Radio Network) in the first game of a three-game homestand. Individual-game tickets are available at the RBC Center box office, all TicketMaster locations, by calling 919-834-4000 or via www.CarolinaHurricanes.com.
