VPX/Redline CEO Jack Owoc said, “The entire VPX/Redline organization is teeming with excitement over the news of our alliance with the Florida Panthers and BankAtlantic Center. We are going to rock the ‘We See Red’ campaign all across South Florida. We want to energize our community with our award winning and University proven Redline Xtreme energy drink and provide nourishment and hydration with our Coco Fit beverage. We will have 14 Redline Xtreme Fitness models at every event providing free samples and product education at all BankAtlantic Center events including NHL games and concerts.
