With an entourage and security worthy of the President of the United States, the Stanley Cup arrived at American Tobacco’s Bay 7 for a brief two hour visit on Wednesday, July 5, 2006.  

The private viewing of the Stanley Cup was arranged for tenants and contractors by the American Tobacco Management Office. 

Attendees were not only invited to view the Cup, but were treated to refreshments afterwards.

The Stanley Cup awed onlookers at its visit to American Tobacco.

Tenants decked out in Hurricanes attire, some of whom who stood in line for almost an hour, got a once in a lifetime opportunity to touch, kiss, hug and take family photos with the Stanley Cup.  As people filed into Bay 7, fans began clapping, cheering and taking photos of the Cup.  Matt West, Carolina Hurricanes Vice President of Business & Operations even helped one couple place their baby in the upper portion of the trophy.
