RALEIGH, NC
- Doug Warf, Director of Community Relations and Executive Director of the Carolina Hurricanes’ Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that tickets are on sale now for the 2010 Carolina Hurricanes Casino Night and Wine Tasting. This year’s theme revolves around the Old American Wild West (e.g., Wild Bill Hickock, Saloons, “Wanted” Era, circa 1900 and early 20th century, railroads, and covered wagons), so the RBC Center will be transformed back in time. Therefore, attire for the event is semi-formal, but feel free to add a Wild West touch or flare to your outfit. The annual event will take place March 14 at the RBC Center from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. There are 500 tickets available for Casino Night, priced at $200 ($115 is tax deductible), with all proceeds going to benefit the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, which supports children’s charities and educational programs throughout North Carolina.

The Casino Night and Wine Tasting event will include wine tasting stations and non-cash prize casino games such as Poker, Blackjack, Roulette and Craps. The entire Hurricanes team, including players, coaches and front office executives, will act as dealers at the tables during the event. Also included in the night are several wine tasting stations from local wine vendors, a full-service food buffet and an open bar. Last year’s Casino Night and Wine Tasting raised more than $215,000 for local children’s charities.

In addition to casino-style games and the wine tasting, the night will also feature a silent and live auction. The silent auction includes nearly 100 items, highlighted by the popular “player baskets” which are made by individual players and include their “favorite things.” The live auction will include more than 10 items, headlined by the highly sought-after “Trip with the Team.” Tickets for Casino Night are available at the Time Warner Cable Box Office at the RBC Center, all Ticketmaster locations or by calling 919-861-5474 (no processing fee).

The Casino Night and Wine Tasting is the major fundraiser for the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, which provides much-needed funding to children’s charities and educational programs throughout North Carolina. Last year, the Foundation donated $506,220 to 43 different children’s organizations. The Carolina Hurricanes and the Kids ‘N Community Foundation have donated more than $8.5 million in cash and in-kind services over the past 11 years.
