Nonprofit MessagingThe Charlotte Checkers are proud to help nonprofits and other advocates use our games to raise awareness and funds for their cause. Some of the ways we do this include ticket sales fundraisers, allowing organizations to set up concourse tables to share their stories and including these organizations’ messaging in our in-game presentation. These methods have helped us raise a total of $3.7 million for the Charlotte community since 2006 and win the American Hockey League’s Excellence in Community Service award three times since 2011.
Based on availability and discretion, the Checkers will do everything possible to share the messaging of participating nonprofits as it fits into the overall game presentation that is designed to entertain in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. Messaging that highlights an organization’s efforts in the community and provides clear calls to action for the audience to take is strongly preferred.
To learn more, contact a group sales representative at (704) 342-4423 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
