The Florida Panthers will pay tribute to a very special group of public servants when they take the ice on Thursday, March 15 against the Boston Bruins.
Honoring those who constantly put their lives on the line to protect area residents, law enforcement officials will be special guests of honor at the game against the defending Stanley Cup champions. Face-off at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise is at 7:35 p.m.
Law Enforcement Appreciation Night is dedicated to honoring the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers and their families, and will help raise awareness and funds for the forthcoming National Law Enforcement Museum, currently under construction in Washington, DC.
The Panthers are offering a special all-inclusive Law Enforcement Appreciation package for law enforcement officers, their families and supporters. The package includes game tickets available at various levels.
The first 1,000 fans to redeem their tickets will receive a limited edition Florida Panthers and National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund co-branded challenge coin.
As part of this special event, the Panthers will donate $10 from each ticket sold directly to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund to support the National Law Enforcement Museum.
“The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is proud to partner with the Florida Panthers to honor and celebrate the service and sacrifice our law enforcement officers make each day in Florida and across the country,” said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman & CEO of the Memorial Fund, through a press release.
The privately funded National Law Enforcement Museum launched an $80 million capital campaign, raising more than $56 million to date.
Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton serve as co-chairs of the Museum’s National Honorary Campaign Committee, which also includes seven former Attorneys General of the United States, as well as other former government officials and celebrities, including Honorary Chairman Clint Eastwood.
