RALEIGH, NC – Doug Warf, Vice President of Marketing for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that the foundation has begun its first-ever 50/50 Raffle, built by Martin Marietta. The raffle will feature nightly prizes for each remaining home game, with the cash grand prize building until a winner is randomly drawn on April 11.
Fans may purchase raffle tickets inside “The Eye” team store locations on the East (section 119) and West (section 104) sides of the main concourse. Tickets are available through the second intermission of the final five home games, and nightly non-cash prizes include autographed jerseys and meet-and-greets. The cash grand prize drawing will take place at the end of the second intermission of the team’s finale against Detroit on April 11, with half of the jackpot going to the winner and half going to the Kids ‘N Community Foundation. Winners of the nightly prizes are still eligible for the cash grand prize.
Tickets may be purchased in the following bundles: $5 for three tickets, $10 for 10 tickets and $20 for 30 tickets. The cash grand prize winner does not have to be present to win. Nightly winning ticket numbers and additional information is available at CarolinaHurricanes.com/5050.
