Sometimes the odds just play in your favor. For Concord, N.C. resident Hope Seger, the odds were nearly 25,000 to 1.
Seger was selected as the Grand Prize winner of Prowl the Den, a contest sponsored by Allen Tate Companies that chose 25 winners for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of the home of the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium.
Each winner was invited to bring three guests each to visit the Panthers locker room, training room, PantherVision studio, team kitchen and other areas of the stadium usually off-limits to the public. The winners also enjoyed a tailgate party, visits with Sir Purr and the Top Cats, and an opportunity to run onto the playing field during the event held November 10.
As the Grand Prize winner selected from the tour winners, Seger received four suite tickets and four field passes for the December 17, 2018 home game vs. New Orleans and four replica Carolina Panthers jerseys.
Seger, who attended Prowl the Den with her aunt Kim and cousins Ella and Emma, says she loves all of the players and looks forward to seeing them play in a few weeks.
“I’ll definitely invite Kim and Ella to join me at the game, but I’ll need to chose one of my six siblings,” said Seger.
A record number of Carolina Panthers fans – 24,564 – registered for the contest, now in its sixth year. Prowl the Den is one of the many ways Allen Tate celebrates its 12-year partnership as Official Realtor® of The Carolina Panthers.
