Hurricanes, Fans Raise $10,004 For Water for Haiti

RALEIGH, NC—Doug Warf, Director of Community Relations for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that the Hurricanes and their fans raised $10,004 prior to and during Sunday’s game against Boston to provide fresh water to the relief effort in Haiti. The team had partnered with the local Pepsi bottler, Pepsi Bottling Ventures, to assist the Haiti relief effort by donating case packs of Aquafina water.

Last week, working in concert with the U.S. Army and Air Force, Pepsi donated two truck loads (2,889 cases) of Aquafina, which have already been delivered to Haiti. As part of their partnership with the Hurricanes, Pepsi agreed to send one case of Aquafina water (24 bottles) for every $2 raised by the team directly to Haiti by working with their contacts at Fort Bragg. Hurricanes wives collected cash donations from fans prior to Sunday’s game against the Boston Bruins, with 100 percent of the funds raised benefiting those in need in Haiti. Coupled with the donation of 1,200 cases of water by Hurricanes players, the donations by the team and its fans will mean that an additional 5,002 cases of water, or 120,048 bottles, will go to the relief effort.
