Hurricanes players, coaches, broadcasters and management will join each participating foursome. Each registered golfer will receive a gift bag valued at $250, on-course food and beverage and a tax receipt for participation. Following the tournament, golfers will enjoy a reception where prizes will be awarded to the tournament’s top teams and individual-hole contest winners. Participants also will receive two tickets to a to-be-determined early regular-season Hurricanes game. Prior to that game, golfers can attend a reception as a thank you for participating in the tournament. Please visit www.CarolinaHurricanes.com/GolfTournament for registration information.
The 2014 Kids ‘N Community Golf Tournament raised more than $40,000, helping the Foundation award $576,000 to 29 different children’s charities and foundations in 2014-15. The Foundation’s level of giving, coupled with ticket and in-kind donations, ranked the Carolina Hurricanes seventh on the Triangle Business Journal’s list of largest corporate philanthropists.
The Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much-needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. The Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other children’s-related initiatives. Annually, the Foundation provides cash and in-kind contributions of more than $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities, and the Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in our state.
