The Carolina Panthers and Morris-Jenkins announced a multi-year partnership today, naming Morris-Jenkins the Official Air Conditioning, Heating and Plumbing Service Provider of the Carolina Panthers.
Along with an exclusive sponsorship, Morris-Jenkins is teaming up with the Panthers to launch the "Kicks for Kids" program in support of Atrium Health's Levine Children's Hospital, a charity Morris-Jenkins has supported for over a decade. As part of the program, Morris-Jenkins will make a $1,000 donation to Levine Children's Hospital every time the Panthers make a field goal.
"We've watched the changes and spirit of action brought to the Panthers, and I feel they're both positive and refreshing," said Jonathan Bancroft, President and CEO of Morris-Jenkins. "Plus, Mr. Jenkins told me that he's very excited about this partnership and is looking forward to being a fun part of the fan experience."
To celebrate their partnership, Morris-Jenkins is also hosting the Protect and Check Sweepstakes with one lucky winner each home game. If the Panthers get a third-down stop in the third quarter during a home game, the winner will get a Smart Home Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector. If the Panthers get a fourth-down stop in the fourth quarter, that same winner will receive a $1,500 gift card. Fans can enter the sweepstakes here.
Additionally, Morris-Jenkins is now serving as the presenting sponsor of the "Panther Talk with Head Coach Matt Rhule" show on the Panthers Radio Network, as well as title sponsor of the recently re-launched "Happy ½ Hour" podcast.
"We're excited to partner with Morris-Jenkins, a Charlotte-based company with a long track record of strong service in our region," said Paul McGoohan, vice president of business development for Tepper Sports & Entertainment. "The programs they are supporting will help make an impact in our community and also provide some fun opportunities for our fans."
