Veterans, VA staff, and visitors at the Dorn facility were treated to a surprise visit Tuesday by two of the Carolina Panthers cheerleaders, and team mascot “Sir Purr.” The “Top Cats,” as these young ladies are known, visited with veterans, posed for pictures, and shared their team spirit with Panther fans.
The visit was coordinated through the Panthers’ Community Relations department. Columbia is considered a military community with the VA Hospital, Fort Jackson, and nearby Shaw Air Force Base all located within the area.
“The military is one of our key focus areas,” said Jill Cole, Assistant Community Relations Director for the Panthers organization. The Top Cats, Sir Purr, and the PurrCussian drumline are available for venues including charitable, corporate and school functions as well.
To schedule an engagement or learn details, call Mr. Riley Fields at 704-358-7409.
