— RBC Bank and the Carolina Hurricanes are marking Teacher Appreciation Night Thursday with a series of discounts for educators and education-themed in-game events.

The bank donated 5,000 tickets for Thursday's game against the Florida Panthers for distribution to employees of the Wake County Public School System. Other educators can purchase tickets at a special, reduced rate.

RBC Bank sponsors the Tribute to Teachers program to recognize elementary and middle school teachers who demonstrate exceptional leadership in the classroom and in their communities.
