Panther Fever! There’s a cool Panthers contest planned to kick off the new season—an “American Idol”—type of experience. Contestants will square off during halftime of the games 8/29 – 9/13. Prizes include a VIP package with tickets and autographed memorabilia. Fans enter by uploading videos, and win the right to sing at the games through online voting. For details, go to panthers.com.
