Spectra Baby USA Announce Partnership With Florida Panthers
First dedicated nursing lounge at BB&T Center for Panthers games and BB&T Center events.
DAVIE, Fla., October 12, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Spectra Baby USA announced today that the company has entered a multi-year partnership with the Florida Panthers to build the first lactation lounge in an arena that is an actual lounge. You're used to seeing pods to accommodate nursing mothers, but Spectra has taken it to another level with developing a full lounge where moms can nurse and pump with comfort and space.
The new Spectra Pumping Lounge outside of Section 310/311 on the Upper-Level concourse at BB&T Center will feature a comfortable space fully equipped with a fridge, recliners, curtained off privacy sections, pillows, blankets, wipes, stocked magazine rack for mothers to feel comfortable and safe while nursing.
“We are incredibly excited to see this project with the BB&T Center come to light. This is the first dedicated nursing and pumping lounge at the arena, and we are thrilled to unveil this beautiful space,” said Spectra Baby USA CEO Heidi Humphries. “Breastfeeding and pumping moms will now be able to pump and nurse comfortably and in style while attending one of their favorite events. Normalizing this journey and helping moms has always been our mission. The forward-thinking team from the BB&T Center has made this possible.”
In addition, Spectra Baby USA will be the presenting sponsor of Hockey N’ Heels on Nov. 8 when the Panthers host the Edmonton Oilers at 7 p.m. The evening includes a cocktail hour followed by a networking event where women have the opportunity to hear from top female executives in the sports and entertainment industry.
About Florida Panthers Hockey Club & BB&T Center
The Florida Panthers entered the National Hockey League in 1993, becoming one of the most successful first-year expansion teams in history. By just their third season, the Panthers reached the 1996 Stanley Cup Final in memorable fashion during their ‘Year of the Rat’ run as fans in South Florida littered the ice with rubber rats in celebration of goals and wins. In 1998, the Panthers moved from Miami Arena to their current home in Sunrise, Fla., BB&T Center, where the club has won two division titles (2011-12 & 2015-16), hosted the NHL Draft twice (2001 & 2015) and the NHL All-Star Game in 2003. Led by owner Vincent J.
