Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Boca will Host Dinners

SUNRISE, Fla. – The Florida Panthers announced today that because of the overwhelming success of the first 'Dinner with the Stars,' the promotion will continue throughout the summer at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse Boca. The dinners will allow lucky Panthers fans to eat out with their favorite Panthers players.

"'Dinner With The Stars' started out as a chance for four lucky fans to be the first to welcome our new players to South Florida," Sunrise Sports & Entertainment chief operating officer Michael Yormark said. "It was such a success the first time around that we've decided to schedule more throughout the summer."

"Our 'Dinner With The Stars' was a really neat experience," said inaugural winners Buddy and Maria Nastase. "The players and their wives made us feel very welcome. It was a really cool, great night and the food was delicious."

Fans can enter to win the opportunity to have 'Dinner With The Stars' by simply sending a name, phone number and e-mail address of a qualified prospective season ticket holder to the Panthers. By doing so, these fans will automatically be entered to win the 'Dinner With the Stars," while also helping to make the BankAtlantic Center the best home ice advantage in the National Hockey League.

The lucky winners will have dinner with one of their favorite Panthers players at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Boca Raton between late August and early September. All referrals must be in by August 1 and should include a list of three possible Panthers players to have dinner with.

A fan will get one chance to win for every season seat holder prospect submitted to the Panthers. For instance, if you send in 10 names, you will have 10 chances to win. Winners will be drawn on Tuesday, August 1 at 5:30 p.m. and each winner will be eligible to bring a guest. Fans must include their account name and contact information in the e-mail. Winners will be notified after the drawing via telephone.

Interested fans should send their submissions to be registered for 'Dinner With The Stars' to Marisa Halpern at
