Panthers Announce Season Ticket Donation Program
SUNRISE, FL – The Florida Panthers today unveiled their new ticket donation program that is sponsored by Head Coach Peter DeBoer. DeBoer will purchase a minimum of 20 lower level season tickets (including parking) for the 2008-09 season that will be distributed to families who are experiencing economic hardship.

“As a proud new member of the South Florida community, my family and I are excited to offer this season ticket program to hockey fans who otherwise, would not be able to attend Florida Panthers home games,” said DeBoer. “My family and I are committed to making a positive impact in this community and I think that this program is a great first step.”

Fans will be able to apply for the program at floridapanthers.com and while self-nominations will be accepted, they are not encouraged. Any self-nomination must include additional personal references. All entries must be submitted on the Florida Panthers website and additional submission materials, including photos and videos, will not be accepted. One self-nomination per person is permitted.

All nominations are due by 5 p.m. on July 31. All applications will be reviewed by Panthers management and winners will be notified by August 15. Every application will also be reviewed to determine whether additional donations can be provided in the form of concessions vouchers or merchandise. Current season seat owners who have experienced a significant change in their personal financial situation may also apply.

For more information about this program please contact Alaina Miller at (954) 835-7730 or by e-mail at millera@sselive.com.

Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital has been named as a preferred beneficiary of the Florida Panthers Foundation. The hospital will receive $500 from the Foundation for every Panthers goal scored at the BankAtlantic Center during the 2007-08 season.

Over the past year the Florida Panthers Foundation has donated funds to the following organizations:  The Andy Roddick Foundation, the Transplant Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County, Florence Fuller Child Development Centers, Goldie’s Gang, Deliver the Dream and the Jewish National Fund.

Additionally, 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, Kids in Distress, American Jewish Community, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Rock and Wrap It Up!.
