Casino Night Event Raises $210,000 for Foundation

Money will benefit local educational and children’s causes

RALEIGH, NC— Doug Warf, Manager of Community Relations and Executive Director of the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that the team’s “Casino Night” event, held on Sunday, Feb. 24, raised more than $210,000 for the Kids ‘N Community Foundation. It was the largest amount of money ever raised by the Foundation in a single event, and all of the money raised goes to benefit children’s and educational causes in our area.

“We are thrilled with the results of this year's Casino Night and Wine Tasting,” said Warf. “It is our promise to the attendees that the money raised will be invested in deserving, hard-working children's organizations that are creating change in the lives of North Carolina's youth.”

Each year the Hurricanes’ players and their wives host more than 500 members of the business community and their guests at the RBC Center for the Casino Night and Wine Tasting event, providing a unique opportunity for fans to mingle with the players, coaches and staff. The night features a wine tasting and casino tables with Hurricanes players and coaches serving as the dealers. There are also silent and live auctions, and Casino Night is traditionally the biggest fundraising event of the year for the Kids 'N Community Foundation.

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 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 Kids ‘N Community Foundation’s next grant cycle ends on March 3. All organizations interested in receiving a grant from the Foundation should submit a request by that date.
