The 17th Annual Skate with the Canes will take place on Monday, Nov. 24, at PNC Arena from 6:30 – 9 p.m. The Kids ‘N Community Foundation fundraising event allows fans and members of the Hurricanes to interact by rotating through an autograph session, a photo opportunity in the Hurricanes’ locker room and a skating session on the ice at PNC Arena. Tickets will go on sale for season-ticket holders on Oct. 15 at 10 a.m. and to the general public on Oct. 16 at 10 a.m.
Each guest will have the opportunity to interact each member of the Hurricanes team. For example, the participant may be in an autograph session with Jeff Skinner, take a photo with Justin Faulk or skate with Eric Staal. Fans may bring their own skates for the ice session or pick up a complimentary rental pair. Those who do not wish to skate may still attend and be a part of the event.
Event tickets are $75 each and include food, beverages, ice skate rentals and a gift, courtesy of the Carolina Hurricanes. Hurricanes Alumni, Stormy, the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad will also be in attendance, and select inflatables will be available throughout the night.
Fans can purchase tickets at the PNC Arena Box Office, Ticketmaster or by calling 919-861-5494. Season-ticket holders may purchase their tickets online before they go on sale to the general public through the Caniac Account Manager, at the PNC Arena Box Office or by calling 919-861-5494.
Children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult with a ticket. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and all participants are asked to enter through the East Entrance. Attendees should bring their own cameras for the photo session.
All proceeds will benefit the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation, which provides funding to children’s charities and educational programs throughout North Carolina. During the 2013-14 season, the Kids ‘N Community Foundation donated $582,000 in grant money to 32 North Carolina children’s non-profit organizations.
