SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today the Florida Panthers Summer Blueprint Tour, a new program that will bring fans and new business prospects face-to-face with Cats GM Dale Tallon or other personalities and executives during a variety of local events including luncheons, golf outings, rink appearances, public park visits, and more. The Tour is part of the Florida Panthers Offseason presented by JetBlue.
The Panthers are heading toward one of the most exciting offseasons in franchise history with the search for a new head coach, the No. 3 overall pick at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft on June 24 in Minnesota, and the most flexibility of any NHL team once free agency begins on July 1.
During the exciting offseason, the Panthers will continue to reach out to the local community with a diverse schedule of events throughout the tri-county area and also west to the Naples/Ft. Myers area as well. Fans attending Blueprint Tour events will have the opportunity to meet with Panthers sales representatives to discuss ticket packages and seat locations for the 2011-12 season and more.
