Canes Host 10th Annual Military Appreciation Night
RALEIGH, NC – On Saturday, March 9, the Carolina Hurricanes will host Military Appreciation Night presented by Kangaroo Express, as the team takes on the New Jersey Devils at 7 p.m. This marks the 10th season that the Hurricanes have hosted Military Appreciation Night as an opportunity to thank servicemen and women for their contributions, as well as raise awareness about the branches of the military.

For the first time, the Hurricanes will wear special jerseys honoring the military during pre-game warm-ups, which begin at 6:30 p.m. The camouflage jerseys will be auctioned off, with the proceeds being split between the Kids 'N Community Foundation and the USO of North Carolina. The sweaters worn by Tim Gleason and Jay Harrison will be auctioned off during the game at the Kids 'N Community Foundation in-game auction located outside of section 129. The auction will end during the 2nd intermission, and the winner of each jersey will receive a meet-and-greet with the respective player following the game. The remainder of the jerseys will be auctioned off online starting Monday, March 18, via a link from www.CarolinaHurricanes.com/Foundation.

Starting at 4:45 p.m., there will be a special display of military equipment on PNC Arena’s south plaza, including a variety of vehicles from branches of the military. Inside PNC Arena, some branches of the military will have tables set up on the main concourse. The color guard will be presented the XVIII (18th) Airborne Corps Color Guard from Fort Bragg with soldiers from the 108th Air Defense Artillery Brigade. The national anthem will be performed by The Guardsmen, an ensemble comprised of members of the 440th Army Band. During the game, various active, reserve and retired members of the military will be recognized and honored. The evening will also include a ceremonial puck drop and a swearing-in ceremony for the U.S. Army.

In addition to Kangaroo Express, the following companies sponsored tickets and food and beverage to be provided to military members and their families for the game: Cree; Cisco; Lenovo; CARQUEST Auto Parts; K2 Solutions, Inc.; LORD Corp.; Piedmont Natural Gas; Pepsi; Custom Home Exteriors; The Hamm Family; North American Wine and Spirits and Planet Fitness.
