Amerant Bank Donates 250 Tickets to Local Veterans and First Responders for Game 4 of Florida Panthers Playoffs

27 May 2024

Amerant Bank, the largest community bank headquartered in Florida, is excited to announce a special initiative to support local veterans in partnership with the Florida Panthers. As part of its ongoing mission to empower and give back to the local communities it serves, Amerant Bank purchased 250 tickets to Game 4 of the Panthers playoffs at Amerant Bank Arena and will be donating them to local veterans and first responders.

Amerant Bank will gift tickets to those who have selflessly served our country and community, in collaboration with organizations that work with the Florida Panthers, including United States Coast Guard - Miami Sector, United States Navy Talent Acquisition Group-Miami (NTAG Miami), Mission United, Deliver the Dream, Rebuilding Together Broward, Panthers Warriors, Fort Lauderdale Fire Department, Coral Springs Police, and Sunrise Police.

“Not only are we excited about the Panthers play during the entire playoffs, but we are thrilled to offer our local veterans and heroes the opportunity to enjoy a Panthers playoff game,” said Jerry Plush, Chairman and CEO of Amerant Bank. “Giving back to the community is a fundamental part of our mission at Amerant Bank. We are committed to fostering strong community relationships and supporting those who have dedicated their lives to our country.”

This initiative is a part of Amerant Bank's broader effort to support veterans in the local community, which includes the "Saves for Vets" program with the Florida Panthers. As the Official Bank of the Panthers, Amerant Bank donates $40 for each save made by a Panthers goaltender throughout the regular season and playoffs. The funds raised through this program directly benefit veteran-focused nonprofit organizations in South Florida. In the 2022-2023 season, Amerant donated over $120,000 as part of this program.

"The Florida Panthers are honored to partner with Amerant Bank in supporting and honoring our veterans and first responders," said Matt Caldwell, CEO of the Florida Panthers. "Our collaboration with Amerant Bank highlights our shared commitment to giving back to the community. We look forward to welcoming these heroes to Game 4 and celebrating their amazing contributions."

Additionally, Amerant Bank also purchased 250 tickets for its own team members as a way to recognize their dedication and hard work. Those tickets were distributed to 125 team members, plus one guest to enjoy Sunday’s Game 3 at Amerant Bank Arena.

Amerant Bank’s efforts to foster community relationships and support local organizations are fundamental to its role as a community bank. The bank remains dedicated to creating a positive impact and enhancing the lives of the people it serves throughout South Florida.
