TUESDAY, APRIL 9th: GLAZER FAMILY FOUNDATION HELPS

HIGHPOINT STUDENTS SEE MORE CLEARLY

 

Thanks to some special visitors to their school, more than 90 students at Highpoint Elementary in Clearwater now look at the world in a whole new - and much-improved - way.

 

On Tuesday, April 9th, Tampa Bay Buccaneer players Keith Tandy and Dekoda Watson, along with Buccaneers Cheerleader Tricia, Glazer Family Foundation staff and team mascot Captain Fear, presented a group of Highpoint students with brand new glasses through the Foundation's Vision Program.

"It would take two weeks to read one chapter for me," said Omarii Forte, a third-grade student at Highpoint. "It is awesome because I can now read better and everything pops and the words will be bigger. This is the best day of my life because the Buccaneers are my favorite team."

 

This winter and spring, the Foundation has presented almost 1,000 Bay area students at nearly a dozen schools with free pairs of glasses. To see more from Tuesday's vision event, visit the Foundation's website at www.GlazerFamilyFoundation.org.

BUCCANEERS ACCEPTING NOMINATIONS FOR

"MOTHER'S DAY MAKEOVERS"

 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Fourth Annual "Mother's Day Makeover" program is giving away a once-in-a-lifetime experience to 50 mothers from Central Florida in honor of Mother's Day. Continuing the tradition from 2012, the Buccaneers are excited to support military moms who go above and beyond for their loved ones.

 

This year, the Mother's Day program includes an added twist: the team is opening up its doors and transforming its state-of-the-art facility into a spa for this special experience, which will take place on Military Spouse Appreciation Day on Friday, May 10.

 

The Buccaneers are searching for compelling stories of mothers who are currently U.S. military members, are mothers of U.S. military members, or are a spouse/partner of a U.S. military member and would benefit from a day of pampering and relaxation.

 

Following a selection process, 50 mothers will be invited to One Buccaneer Place where they will enjoy a makeover including manicures, massages, hair stylings, and professional makeup. For a complete list of rules and requirements, and to submit a nomination for the Buccaneers "Mother's Day Makeover" program, please visit www.buccaneers.com/community
