Join us for the 10th Annual Casino Night presented by PNC, the signature fundraiser for the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, on Sunday, February 22.
Spend the evening of fun and excitement with Hurricanes players, coaches, broadcasters and front office executives. This year’s Casino Night, themed as Blackbeard’s Ball, 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.
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 2014 Casino Night and Wine Tasting raised more than $280,000 for local, non-profit children’s organizations.

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 2013-14, the Kids ‘N Community Foundation awarded a record $582,000 to 32 different children’s charities and foundations. This fall, the Foundation awarded $300,000 in large GOAL grants to East Durham Children’s Initiative, The Hill Center, Boys and Girls Clubs of Wake County, Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC, InterAct of Wake County, and YMCA of the Triangle. Funds raised from the 10th 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.
