Florida Panthers Foundation Announces Panther Pail Fundraiser
Fundraiser to be Held on May 15 at the Second Cats Cookout of the Summer

SUNRISE, FL – The Florida Panthers Foundation today announced plans for its first “Panther Pail” fundraiser to be held on Tuesday, May 15 as the Panthers host the second Cats Cookout of the summer at the BankAtlantic Center.

The game will be located outside of Section 105 with all proceeds benefiting the Florida Panthers Foundation. Fans will have the opportunity to purchase one chance to throw a ball into a pail for $5 or five chances for $20. Each fan purchasing a chance will receive a gift and all fans who successfully throw a ball into a pail will win prizes such as autographed Panthers memorabilia or tickets to a Florida Panthers home game during the 2007-2008 season.

“On the heels of our successful ‘Lucky Ducky’ promotion, the Foundation has created another innovative fundraising idea with our ‘Panther Pail’ event,” said Executive Director Alaina Miller. “We are proud to offer fans an interactive and fun way to win some autographed Panthers memorabilia as well as Panthers tickets for the upcoming season.”

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, the Andy Roddick Foundation and Rock and Wrap It Up!.
