Battle for our Heroes 2014
by posted 06/12/2014
 

Three Carolina Lightning teams participated in the Battle for our Heroes 2014 inline skating event June 5-7 at Dreamsports Center. 

All proceeds from The Battle for Our Heroes tournament went to Operation: Coming Home, a local organization dedicated to building custom homes for wounded veterans at no charge and to Special Forces Warriors Foundation.  For more than 33 years, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation has provided surviving children of Special Operations Forces  service members with the college education their fallen parent would have wanted for them. It also provides financial assistance and support to special operations personnel who are severely wounded.

The Lightning fielded Bantam A boys, Bantam B co-ed and U12 co-ed teams.  All three teams played and won their respective exhibition games.  But really everyone wins!

Below is picture of U12 team:

Congratulations and Thank You to all the skaters, coaches and families for their support of these great organizations!!!

Carolina Lightning Sponsorship Program
by posted 08/27/2013
 

Lightning Parents and Potential Sponsors,

Carolina Lightning Hockey's Sponsorship Program has been developed to support the growth of, and to benefit the entire Lightning organization.
 
We have multiple levels of sponsorship support embedded into our program, to facilitate those sponsoring the Lightning (you as a business or parent), directed to individual teams, and/or large organizational/corporate sponsorships to support the organization as a whole. Either way, Lightning sponsorships will benefit your child in some form or fashion.
 
Participation is entirely voluntary but very much appreciated. This is a great opportunity to highlight your business on Lightning jerseys at games and tournaments. Please review the Sponsorship Program details on the Lightning website Documents page at
http://carolinalightninghockey.com/Documents.asp?n=83502&org=carolinalightninghockey.com

Additionally, if you have the professional skill to help guide/run this effort and represent the Lightning organization in support of obtaining corporate sponsors , it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me to get involved.

On behalf of all our great kids, and the entire Lightning organization, thank you for your consideration and support.
Regards
Don Schaap
President
