Panthers in the Community

Though the Florida Panther may not be performing on the ice in a way the fans in South Florida would like nobody can deny that the team has been out in the community doing their share to contribute.

The Panthers branded “I Love Hockey Month” in South Florida has been quite a success with a intentional effort to reach out to kids playing hockey and others who may interested in hockey across South Florida.

“The Florida Panthers are dedicated to helping out the community of South Florida throughout the year with various community initiatives, including Food and Toy drives along with visiting local hospitals to help spread cheer”

The Cats recently reached out to the local community in Broward as well as Palm Beach county to get fans excited about hockey…

“The entire Florida Panthers organization including our players, coaches, executives and staff are committed to spreading the love for hockey throughout February,” said Sunrise Sports and Entertainment President & COO Michael Yormark. “We’re looking forward to getting out in to the community, particularly the local South Florida rinks, to help grow the sport of hockey and get fans excited for the last few months of the regular season.”

Even David Booth came out and spoke to fans at a recent home game…

I think it is great to the team really seek to meet with fans and promote the sport…it was like that back when Florida first got a franchise and hopefully it will renew a passion for hockey in the community. The Panthers certainly hit a home run with this one and I would love to see more of this stuff happening around the community!
