Skate with the Canes Tickets Available Oct. 2
RALEIGH, NC – Doug Warf, Vice President of Marketing for the Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, announced today that tickets for the annual Skate with the Canes fundraiser will go on sale for season-ticket holders on Oct. 2 at 10 a.m. Tickets for the general public will go on sale Oct. 3 at 10 a.m. Skate with the Canes will take place on Dec. 18 from 6-9 p.m at PNC Arena.

Tickets for Skate with the Canes are $75 each and include food, beverages, ice skate rentals and a premium gift, courtesy of the Carolina Hurricanes. Fans can purchase tickets at the PNC Arena Box Office, Ticketmaster, or by calling 919-861-5474. Season-ticket holders have access to purchase their tickets online through the Caniac Account Manager the day before they go on sale to the general public, or can buy their tickets at the PNC Arena Box Office or by calling 919-861-5474. There will be 600 tickets available for the event, with 300 tickets reserved for the season-ticket holder pre-sale. All proceeds from the event benefit the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation.

Skate with the Canes is one of five premiere Kids ‘N Community Foundation fundraising events held annually. This year’s event will rotate attendees in groups of 200 through three different stations: a skating session on the PNC Arena ice, a tour of the locker room and photo session with Hurricanes players and an autograph session. The players will rotate stations opposite event attendees so that all fans get one station with each different player grouping. Stormy and the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad will also be on hand throughout the event. Fans may bring their own skates for the ice session, or pick up a complimentary rental pair. Attendees should bring their own cameras for the photo session. Children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult with a ticket.

The Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much-needed funding to children’s charities and educational initiatives throughout North Carolina. The Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other youth-related initiatives. In the 2012-13 grant cycle, the Kids ‘N Community Foundation awarded $436,600 to 26 different children’s charitable organizations. Annually, the Foundation provides cash and in-kind contributions of more than $1 million, bringing the Foundation and team’s donation totals to $11 million since 1997. Each member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in the community, and the Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in the state.
