Carolina Ale House\'s \"Points for Kids\" Begins Wed.
Commodore to join CAH management for 5 p.m. news conference

RALEIGH, NC— On Wednesday, the Carolina Ale House will begin its “Points for Kids” program to benefit the Carolina Hurricanes’ Kids ‘N Community Foundation. Hurricanes defenseman Mike Commodore will join Carolina Ale House management and children from The Miracle League of the Triangle at the Carolina Ale House’s Cary location for a news conference at 5 p.m. The general public is invited to meet Hurricanes mascot Stormy and enjoy rides and interactive games following the news conference.

The Carolina Ale House “Points for Kids” program will donate $100 to the Kids ‘N Community Foundation for each point in the standings the Hurricanes accumulate throughout the season. NHL teams receive two points in the standings for a win and one point in the standings for an overtime or shootout loss. Last season, the Hurricanes finished with 88 points, and in 2005-06, set a franchise-high by earning 112 points. The Hurricanes have earned nine points in the standings so far in 2007-08, going 4-1-1 in their first six games.

The Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities – such as The Miracle League of the Triangle – 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 of over $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 Ale House has received multiple accolades by local publications and media for their restaurant, food and atmosphere. Each family-friendly location features more than 50 televisions, offers daily food and drink specials and separate smoking and non-smoking sections (with air purifiers).
