—Doug Warf, Manager of Community Relations and Executive Director of the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that Hurricanes players Chad LaRose
and Justin Williams will visit Duke Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 2 p.m. LaRose and Williams will deliver special Hurricanes Valentine’s Day cards to patients in several wings of the hospital, and visit with volunteers and on-air talent working with the hospital’s Radiothon, in conjunction with WRAL-FM Mix 101.5.
Media interested in attending Wednesday’s visit are asked to contact Robyn Sossera by phone at 919-913-5874 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, prior to arriving.
The Hurricanes and Duke Children’s Hospital have built a strong relationship since the Hurricanes’ arrival in North Carolina, including the development and maintaining of Hurricanes Hallway on the main level of Duke Children’s Hospital. The Hallway was initially made possible by donations from Hurricanes CEO/Owner Peter Karmanos, Jr., and the Kids ‘N Community Foundation.
The Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. With ongoing support from annual special events and the corporate community, the Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other children’s related initiatives. Already this year the Foundation has donated more than $350,000 to 17 local children’s organizations.
