Kids \'N Community Receives Jersey Auction Donation
Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Patch Auction raises more than $3,000 for Foundation

RALEIGH, NC—Doug Warf, Manager of Community Relations for the Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, announced today that the National Hockey League has donated $3,174.89 to the Kids ‘N Community Foundation as a result of the league-wide 2006-07 Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Patch Auction.

The Hurricanes took part in the auction by placing a Teammates for Kids patch on their jerseys for their home game on Jan. 4 against the Phoenix Coyotes, and donating the sweaters to the league following the game. Across the league, more than $385,000 was raised for charity through the auction.

The money donated by the NHL will be distributed through the Kids ‘N Community Foundation’s fall grant cycle. All grant submissions for that cycle should be received by Sept. 1. During the 2006-07 season, the Kids ‘N Community Foundation donated $374,000 in cash to 24 different local children’s charities.

The Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. With ongoing support from players, 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.
