Storm Hosts Metropolitan Ministries LEON Event at Tampa Bay Times Forum Friday, June 29
TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Storm have joined with presenting sponsors 620 WDAE, 970 WFLA, Ferman Automotive, the tbt* and Inside the Box Café & Catering to host the third annual LEON Family Festival Friday, June 29th from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
Halfway to Christmas, the LEON (noel spelled backwards) Family Festival is a time to rejoice and help collect toys for Metropolitan Ministries. Anybody that brings a new, unwrapped toy or a $10 donation can join the celebration and will also receive a free ticket to the Tampa Bay Storm game later that evening.
The event, on the West Plaza, will have a 60 foot snow slide, pictures with Santa and Mrs. Clause, inflatables, face painting, balloon creations, holiday music, food and much more. WFLA 970 and WDAE 620 will be broadcasting live with video games and a corn toss for the kids, and the Tampa Bay Storm mascot “Storm Dawg” and the Storm cheerleaders will be moving and grooving to keep everyone entertained.
LEON highlights the need that Metropolitan Ministries faces during the summer months when donations begin to decline. “LEON is a fun way for Metropolitan Ministries to remind our supporters that we are half-way to Christmas, but the needs of homeless men, women and children are year-round,” said Tim Marks, Metropolitan Ministries president. “Without the tremendous support of 970 WFLA, Ferman, and the Tampa Bay Storm, we wouldn’t be able to bring this great event to the community.”
This is the third year for the Metropolitan Ministries LEON event. For questions about this event, visit www.metromin.org or call 813-209-1264.
