Canes Announce Fan Appreciation Week Festivities
RALEIGH, NC – Jon Chase, Director of Community Relations and Promotions for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced the details of Fan Appreciation Week, which will be held in conjunction with the team’s final three regular-season home games, April 20-25. In addition to the events and contests below, fans may enjoy a 50 percent discount off all merchandise at The Eye team store from April 20-25. Season ticket holders may get a jump on the special sale by showing their Season Ticket Holder ID card on Friday, April 19.

On Saturday, April 20, the team will celebrate “Stormy’s Birthday,” as the Hurricanes host the Philadelphia Flyers at 7 p.m. at PNC Arena. Beginning at 5 p.m., fans can enjoy a south plaza party featuring live music, an inflatable obstacle course, a Hurricanes moon bounce, street hockey, the slap shot booth, food and beverage and interactive sponsor booths. All fans in attendance for the game will receive 2012-13 team posters, sponsored by the North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program. The Hurricanes will sell limited-edition, “Stormy’s Birthday” mystery pucks at the Kids ‘N Community Foundation kiosk, signed by a mystery player and benefiting the Kids ‘N Community Foundation. And following the game, selected fans will be invited onto the ice to receive an authentic jersey directly from a Hurricanes player. Fans can attempt to win a Tim Gleason jersey and two tickets to the Flyers game by entering the team’s Instagram contest. For more information on the Instagram contest, please visit this page. One fan will win Kevin Westgarth’s jersey through the team’s Canes Rewards program, which is explained here. During the game, fans can bid on Tuomo Ruutu’s jersey at the Kids ‘N Community Foundation kiosk located outside of section 129, or visit the promotions and fan development kiosk outside of section 108 through the second intermission, to enter to win the sweaters from Jay Harrison or Jiri Tlusty. Following the jersey-off-the-back ceremony, all fans are invited down to the ice to have their pictures taken at center ice or in the penalty box as part of “Snap Shot Saturday.” Participants must bring their own cameras.

Several more Canes Rewards contests will allow fans to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences during the team’s home game on Tuesday, April 23, including a chance to sit on the team bench during pre-game warm-ups, to sound the “Hurricane Warning” siren or to watch one period from inside the television booth with Canes broadcasters John Forslund and Tripp Tracy. Fans can enter to win four tickets and dinner to the game against the Islanders by entering the team’s “Family Fun Day” contest on Pinterest. Tuesday’s game will also mark the final College Night of the season, which allows college students to purchase discounted seats to games. Prior to Tuesday’s game, Hurricanes Alumnus and participant on CBS’s Amazing Race realty show Bates Battaglia will sign autographs and take photos outside of section 108 from 6-7 p.m.

The Hurricanes play their final home game of the 2012-13 season when they host the New York Rangers on Thursday, April 25. Fans can again enjoy a south plaza party prior to the game, beginning at 5 p.m. The first 15,000 fans in attendance will receive a Hurricanes hat, sponsored by Chevrolet. The Hurricanes will sell limited-edition, “Fan Appreciation” mystery pucks at the Kids ‘N Community Foundation kiosk, signed by a mystery player and benefiting the Kids ‘N Community Foundation. Following the game, fans 18 and older can take a shot on goal from center ice, and be entered to win pizza for a year, in the Adult Slap Shot event presented by Papa John’s. Thursday night’s game is also the final Family Night of the season, featuring discounted tickets in select seating areas, $1 hot dogs and $2 sodas.
