Join us for the 11th Annual Casino Night presented by PNC, the signature fundraiser for the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, on Sunday, March 6.
Spend the evening of fun and excitement with Hurricanes players, coaches, broadcasters and front office executives. This year’s Casino Night, themed as "I Love the 80s," will include non-cash prize casino games such as poker, blackjack, roulette and craps. Hurricanes players will act as dealers during the event, and the team’s coaches and front-office executives will share in the evening.
The night includes a full-service food buffet and open bar and features a silent and live auction. This year, Casino Night will feature a live band, The Breakfast Club. They are one of the most recognized ‘80s tribute band in all of the country and will be sure to bring the 80s alive at the event.
The silent auction includes nearly 100 items, highlighted by the popular “player baskets,” assembled by each player with their “favorite things.” The live auction will include as many as 10 items, headlined by the “Trip with the Team.” The 2015 Casino Night raised nearly $250,000 for local, non-profit children’s organizations.

They will be available via Ticketmaster, at PNC Arena's Box Office or by calling 919-861-5474. Season Ticket Holders have access to purchase their tickets the day before they go on sale to the general public through Caniac Account Manager, at the box office or by calling 919-861-5474. All proceeds from the event benefit the Kids ‘N Community Foundation.
The Kids ‘N Community Foundation strives to meet the health and education needs of underserved youth in our community through programming and financial assistance to local, non-profit children’s organizations. The Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts, and other youth-related initiatives. In 2014-15, the Kids ‘N Community Foundation awarded a record $576,000 to 29 different children’s charities and foundations. This fall, the Foundation awarded $300,000 in large GOAL grants to Durham Nativity School, Transitions LifeCare, East Durham Children’s Initiative, The Hill Center/John Avery Boys and Girls Club, Boys and Girls Clubs of Wake County, and Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. Funds raised from the 11th Annual Casino Night will help support the Foundation’s spring grant cycle.
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. For more information on the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, please visit our microsite.
