A special package including a “Carolina Hockey Strong” t-shirt and one ticket to the Checkers’ home opener on Friday, Oct. 19, can be purchased now for $30 at gocheckers.com/carolinastrong to support Samaritan’s Purse. For those who have already purchased tickets, shirts can also be purchased at the game for $25 to support Samaritan's Purse.
The team will also host a well-deserved night out for local utility workers from Duke Energy who maintained and restored power during the storm. In the coming weeks, the team will reach out to those workers with an invitation to attend a game on the Checkers this season.
Additionally, the Checkers will make a $5,000 donation to Rescue Ranch, a non-profit animal welfare organization that will be delivering relief supplies to animals affected by the storm in the eastern Carolinas.
