SUNRISE, Fla - The Florida Panthers announced today their partnership with Auberge Beach Residences & Spa Fort Lauderdale.
"Both the Florida Panthers and Auberge Beach Residences & Spa ownership have strong commitments to Broward County and specifically to our veterans," said Andy Mitchell, President and CEO of The Fairwinds Group, who is developing Auberge alongside The Related Group and Fortune International Group. "We are delighted that these two world-class organizations have aligned in this partnership, working closely together throughout the 2017-2018 season to bring the best in hockey and residential development to Broward County residents. Join us on Nov. 2 as we salute the military and give thanks to our national treasures."
Auberge will also be the presenting sponsor of the 'Three Stars of the Game' feature. The Florida Panthers player who is determined to be the 'Auberge Star of the Month' each month will receive a signature Auberge VIP Experience, which will nod to the brand's Napa Valley roots.

"We're honored to work with Auberge to present the upcoming Military Appreciation Night."
Veterans and Active Military Personnel with valid identification can receive a complimentary ticket on Nov. 2 courtesy of the Florida Panthers Foundation. Companion tickets for guests of Veterans and Active Military Personnel can be purchased for $20 each at the box office only on day of game.
