Fans Get Free Drinks, Free Entertainment and Meet Panthers Players

SUNRISE, Fla. – The Florida Panthers announced today that Panthers C Stephen Weiss and other select Panthers players will greet fans at the next 'Cats Cookout' of the summer. The cookout will be held on the BankAtlantic Center's South Carls Patio at 6 p.m.

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 "Eastern Financial District."

The Eastern Financial District is a brand new all-inclusive club on the sunset terrace that will open in time for the 2006-2007 Florida Panthers season. The Eastern Financial District 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 that even the most discriminating sporting fan will enjoy.

"The 'Cats Cookout' has taken on a life of its own since its inception as a way for Panthers fans to interact with our players," Sunrise Sports & Entertainment chief operating officer Michael Yormark said. "We had over 1,700 fans at the last cookout and they can look forward to another great event."
