“Skate with the Canes” is one of three premiere Kids ‘N Community Foundation fundraising events held each year. This year’s event will rotate attendees in groups of 200 through three different stations; a skating session on the RBC Center ice, tour of the locker room/photo session with various Hurricanes players, and an autograph session. The players will rotate opposite event attendees so that all fans get one station with each different player grouping. Stormy and the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad will also be on-hand throughout the event. Fans may bring their own skates for the ice session, or pick up a free rental pair for the event. Attendees must bring their own camera for the photo session.
