Hurricane Club Surpasses 5,500 Member Mark
CORAL GABLES, Fla. - On the morning of its 40th anniversary, the Hurricane Club announced Friday that it has surpassed its goal of 5,500 members for 2012.

"2012 has been an outstanding year for the Hurricane Club and we are only going to grow more," Assistant AD for Development Jesse Marks said. "We've added more than 1,000 members in the last two years alone and we hit our goal on our 40th anniversary. Thank you to all of our donors who helped make this a reality."

The Hurricane Club - which raises funds for student-athlete excellence, providing operational and facility funding for more than 400+ student-athletes across 17 varsity sports - relies on the generosity of Hurricanes fans, alums and former student-athletes to continue a high caliber of excellence in the classroom and in competition.

The Hurricane Club, founded in 1972 as the Athletic Federation, is still pushing its most recent initiative, the "40-for-40" campaign. In celebration of the organization's 40th anniversary, fans can join for as a little as $40 by calling 305-284-6699 or visiting
