Carolina Hurricanes Treat Food-Allergic Kid To First Live Hockey Game
Posted Dec 22 2010 12:00am
I've written numerous times about Raleigh's professional sports team - The Carolina Hurricanes - on this blog. As a season ticket holder for several years, it was important to me to be able to enjoy games like a normal fan. That means enjoying food and beverages that are safe for those eating Gluten Free. As you can see from the link above, the Hurricanes and the fine folks at the RBC Center have been extremely accommodating to those of us with special diets. But what is more important to me is that children with special diets are taken care of and made to feel like other normal kids.
So this story I found in the current issue of Living Without magazine doesn't surprise me in the least. The story is about a 7-year old boy named Joseph, who gets to attend his first Carolina Hurricanes game live at the RBC Center. With the help of All star center Eric Staal and his organization called Eric's Entourage , Joseph was able to safely attend a hockey game without the worry of coming into contact with food he is allergic to. Joseph gets to attend his first game with his dad by his side - what a special treat!
So allow me to offer a special thank you to the Carolina Hurricanes, Eric Staal and the folks at the RBC Center. We are lucky to have you here in Raleigh.
