Florida Panthers and BankAtlantic Center Team With \"Rock and Wrap It Up!\" to Deliver Unused Concession Food to Places of Need
Cats are first South Florida team to get involved with Sports Wrap!

SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment and the Florida Panthers announced today that they will become the first South Florida sports team to partner with Rock and Wrap It Up! – a nonprofit organization dedicated to the alleviation of hunger. As part of this partnership, the Panthers and Rock and Wrap It Up! will donate all unused concession food from Panthers home games at the BankAtlantic Center to 4KIDS of South Florida, Inc. SSE will also donate unused concession food from all concerts and shows at the BankAtlantic Center.

The program begins this Saturday following the Panthers-Thrashers game at the BankAtlantic Center. Rock and Wrap It Up! has made arrangements with Boston Culinary Group, the official food and beverage provider of the BankAtlantic Center, to have all unused cooked food from Saturday’s game picked up and delivered to 4KIDS of South Florida, Inc.

“The Florida Panthers organization prides itself on actively and aggressively supporting the South Florida community,” SSE chief operating officer Michael Yormark. “By partnering with Rock and Wrap It Up!, we are sending a strong message that staying involved in the community and helping children is just as important as on-ice performance.”

“Boston Culinary is excited at the opportunity to team up with the Florida Panthers and Rock and Wrap It Up! to help fight hunger in our community,” said Bob Hough, General Manager of Boston Culinary Group. “We are proud to do whatever we can to support such a worthwhile cause.”

Rock and Wrap It Up! Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the alleviation of hunger by using safely recovered edible leftover food from large-scale arenas and delivering it to shelters. Since the inception of Rock and Wrap It Up! in 1990, over 15 million pounds have been picked up, feeding over 30 million people.

Other teams that participate in Sports Wrap! and have partnered with Rock and Wrap It Up! include: Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, New York Mets, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Giants, New York Jets and World Wrestling Entertainment.
