Fans Get Free Drinks, Free Entertainment & Meet New Panthers Players

SUNRISE, Fla. - The Florida Panthers announced today that they will host their third Cats Cookout presented by Carls Patio on Thursday, July 13, with appearances by the three new Panthers: G Alex Auld, D Bryan Allen and RW Todd Bertuzzi. The cookout will be held on BankAtlantic Center's South Carls Patio at 6 p.m.

"Our first two Cats Cookouts of the summer have been met with tremendous success," said Sr. VP of Sales & Marketing Chad Johnson. "Our next cookout should be the best yet as our fans will have the opportunity to meet with some of our new players, while also learning about some of the great benefits of being a Panthers fan."

The festivities will begin with a free barbeque dinner, open bar and live music on the Carls Patio. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to meet the Florida Panthers sales team, select seats for the upcoming season and get tours and information on memberships to the new "Captain's Club."

The Captain's Club is a brand new all-inclusive club on the sunset terrace that will open in time for the 2006-2007 Florida Panthers season. The Captain's Club will encompass approximately 12,000 square feet and will cater to approximately 500 members with a Panthers themed interior design, full-service bar, outdoor patio, specialty buffet and tremendous sightlines.

"Cats Cookout is another example of our continued efforts to create unique opportunities for Panthers fans to interact with our players," said Johnson. "Our fans have had the opportunity to attend great events similar to this one all year long, such as our Draft Party, Hometown Hockey Tour and our Hockey House Calls presented by Handyman Connection."
