The Luncheon will feature speeches from General Manager Jacques Martin and Head Coach Peter DeBoer outlining the upcoming season and their expectations for the 2008-09 Florida Panthers. Fans will enjoy a gourmet meal as a Panthers player or coach will join each table for lunch. More than 450 guests attended last year’s sold out event and the Foundation expects the event to sell out for the second consecutive year.

Individual tickets are $100 and will include a voucher for four Club level tickets to a Florida Panthers home game in October during the 2008-09 season, excluding Opening Night. Tables of 10 will also be available for purchase for $900 and each guest will also receive a voucher for four Club level tickets to a Florida Panthers home game in October during the 2008-09 season, excluding Opening Night.

“I am proud to announce that our Second Annual Face-Off Luncheon will be held at Woodfield Country Club on October 7,” said Executive Director Alaina Miller. “With the generous support of our presenting sponsor, AvMed Health Plans, and our associate sponsors, Mayors, Morgan Stanley, Boca Raton Florist, Print Basics and Steven D.
