HURRICANES TEAM UP WITH Y-LEARNING PROGRAM
YMCA of the Triangle will hold a press conference to announce partnership on Tuesday

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—March 19, 2007

RALEIGH, NC—
Doug Warf, Manager of Community Relations for the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation and the YMCA of the Triangle will hold a press conference at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20, at Stough Elementary School in Raleigh to announce a new partnership. As part of the partnership, the YMCA’s Y-Learning Programs offered through the Central YMCA and Banks D. Kerr YMCA will receive a grant from the Kids ‘N Community Foundation. In addition, two of the Y-Learning Program’s tutorial sites – Stough Elementary in Wake County and Franklinton Elementary in Franklin County – will be re-named the “Carolina Hurricanes Y-Learning Program Center.”

The Hurricanes will be represented at the press conference on Tuesday by Warf and defenseman Mike Commodore. Stough Elementary is located at 4210 Edwards Mill Road in Raleigh. YMCA of the Triangle leaders and Y-Learning students will also attend the press conference. Media interested in covering the event should contact Jennifer Nelson at (919) 719-9641.

“This generous support from the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation brings us closer to reaching our goal of serving 1,000 children in tutorial programs by 2010,” said YMCA of the Triangle CEO Doug McMillan.

There are currently 15 existing Y-Learning Programs in the Triangle. More than 600 children from more than 25 area schools receive homework assistance and academic enrichment through Y-Learning. Students in the Y-Learning program are currently performing below grade level and have been recommended by their teachers. The Y-Learning curriculum was developed by teachers, and its success is well-documented. For example: 82 percent of Y-Learning participants passed their End of Grade Reading Test. The Y-Learning Program is fully subsidized through grants and donations to the YMCA of the Triangle’s Annual WeBuildPeople campaign. YMCA of the Triangle is the largest provider of after school care, tracking out and early arrivals in Wake County. The YMCA of the Triangle is a 501(c) 3 charity that invested more than $3.5 million last year to serve nearly 8,000 children, teens, adults and families in need.

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 host the Washington Capitals on Thursday (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network) in the first game of a two-game homestand. On Saturday, the Hurricanes will host the San Jose Sharks (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network) at the RBC Center.
