TAMPA BAY – In conjunction with Military Night, Saturday, May 26th, the Tampa Bay Storm will provide a ticket package that benefits local military heroes and provides a way to give back via a program called Seats for Soldiers.
“We have a strong military presence in the Tampa Bay community,” said team president Derrick Brooks. “As an organization we are proud to support the men and women who are on the front line and ensure our safety. This is just one of several ways we plan on giving back to those that sacrifice so much for us.
The ‘Seats for Soldiers’ program is an opportunity for local businesses and individuals to sponsor military personnel to attend a Tampa Bay Storm game. Special sponsorship packages have been crafted that provide an opportunity to send soldiers to the game and a donation to Embracing Florida’s Wounded Heroes.
There are four sponsorship packages, ranging between $125 dollars and $1,500 dollars. At each level a minimum of 20 percent of the sponsorship will be donated to Embracing Florida’s Wounded Heroes. Additionally, each sponsorship package will provide tickets, ranging from 10 to 100; to military personnel enabling them attend the game. The sponsor will also receive tickets plus additional perks based upon the level of sponsorship.
Embracing Florida’s Wounded Heroes is a program of the TAMCO Foundation that directly provides emergency financial assistance to wounded service personnel and their families through emergency hospital assistance, family support programs, continued education and career transitions.
