Panthers Foundation Moves Forward With Two Great Initiatives

Commit 2B Fit and Feeding Broward Together Food Drive Planned For Coming Month

After the resounding success of raising $140,000 at the Ice & Dice Casino Night at the BankAtlantic Center, the Florida Panthers Foundation isn't slowing down . Over the next month the Foundation will take part in two more major charity initiatives – "Commit 2B Fit" and the 2nd Annual "Feeding Broward Together" food drive with the Girl Scouts of America.

"After the success of the Ice & Dice Casino night it is important for the Foundation to move forward in reaching out to the South Florida community," said Vice President of Community Development Randy Moller. "We have made a vow to diversify our community programs. And with 'Commit 2B Fit' and the 'Feeding Broward Together' food drive we feel that we are accomplishing that goal and aiding the community in a variety of ways."

As part of Commit 2B Fit, Florida Panthers players will be out in the community and in schools during February and March to promote healthy eating and physical activity to South Florida families. In conjunction with KISS 99.9FM, BankAtlantic, Florida Department of Citrus and the Broward County Schools, the Foundation will host the Commit 2B Fit night at the BankAtlantic Center during the Panthers home game vs. the defending Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning. Pre-game and in-game activities will encourage children to "Take the Challenge" of becoming more active and making better nutritional choices. Contact Brad Kristel at (954) 835-7227 for more information.

The Foundation, BankAtlantic and the Girl Scouts of America will team up for the 2nd Annual Feeding Broward Together food drive will take place in the BankAtlantic Center parking lot on Saturday, March 11. Last year the Girl Scouts collected 20,000 lbs. of food. This time around, they've set a noble goal of 30,000 lbs.

Over the past year the Florida Panthers Foundation has donated Florida Panthers game tickets and auction items including team-signed jerseys and sticks and Zamboni rides to various South Florida charities. Recipients include: Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Broward County, American Cancer Society, JAFCO, Homestead Air Reserve, Soref JCC, Boys & Girls Club, Miami Disadvantaged Youth, Dept. of Naval Science, American Jewish Community, City of Plantation, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, H.O.P.E., Camelot Community Center, Stellar Kids and the Andy Roddick Foundation.

The Foundation has also made charitable donations to the March of Dimes of Palm Beach, Deliver the Dream, the Boca Raton Junior League, the Genetic Disease Foundation, N.I.C.E. Heart Charities and the Boys & Girls Club.
