SUNRISE, Fla. – The Florida Panthers Foundation announced today it’s three signature events for the 2011-12 Florida Panthers season. The Foundation Face-Off Gala (October 2011), The IOA Ice & Dice Casino Night (December 2011) benefitting the Florida Panthers Foundation, and the Foundation Golf Classic (February 2012), will be the featured events as the Panthers Foundation continues its mission of fighting pediatric cancer and moves toward its goal of donating more than $1 million in kind to South Florida charitable organizations.
“The Florida Panthers Foundation is thrilled to announce three incredible events for the 2011-12 Panthers season,” said Foundation Executive Director Rachel Brooke. “With the revitalized Face-Off Gala, the return of the IOA Ice & Dice Casino Night and the continued success of the Foundation Golf Classic, the Foundation is looking forward to its most successful year ever in the fight against pediatric cancer.”
The Florida Panthers Foundation raised more than $200,000 for South Florida charities during its two signature events last season – the Face-Off Luncheon and Golf Classic – and donated more than $1 million in kind during the 2010-11 season overall.
