The Florida Panthers recently hosted a specialized hockey clinic for approximately 20 Lighthouse of Broward youth who are blind or visually impaired.  The young people, 7 to 17-year olds with no or slight levels of sight, used their hearing to shoot balls equipped with bells into the nets at BB&T Center.

“This is an all-time favorite for our kids. They just love getting out and enjoy this activity immensely,” said Ellyn Drotzer, president and CEO of Lighthouse of Broward. “We’re extremely grateful to the Florida Panthers for treating our kids to this special day.”
