Tickets for the Carolina Hurricanes' Casino Night and Wine Tasting fundraiser are on sale now. The March 13 event costs $200 ($115 is tax deductible), with tickets available available via Ticketmaster, through our online order form and at the Time Warner Cable Box Office at the RBC Center. All proceeds will benefit the Kids ‘N Community Foundation.
The 2011 Casino Night and Wine Tasting event will include wine tasting stations from local wine vendors and non-cash prize casino games such as Poker, Blackjack, Roulette and Craps. Hurricanes players will act as dealers at the tables during the event, and the team’s coaches and front-office executives will take part in the evening. The fundraiser will also include a full-service food buffet and an open bar. Last year’s event raised more than $150,000 for local children’s charities.
In addition to casino-style games and wine tasting, the night will also feature silent and live auctions. The silent auction includes nearly 100 items, highlighted by the popular “player baskets,” which are made by individual players and include their “favorite things.” The live auction will include as many as 10 items and will be headlined by the “Trip with the Team.”
The Casino Night and Wine Tasting is the major fundraiser for the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, which provides much-needed funding to children’s charities and educational initiatives throughout North Carolina. Last year, the Foundation donated $458,734 to 52 different children’s organizations. The Carolina Hurricanes and Kids ‘N Community Foundation have donated more than $9 million in cash and in-kind services in the past 12 years.
