As I sit here watching the Bucs pound on Carolina, I'm thinking wouldn't it be cool if the Buccaneers made it to the Super Bowl in February right here at our very own RayJay Stadium.  It's possible... look at what the Rays are doing by going from last to first - and a strong contender for the World Series - in a year!  But whether or not that happens, Tampa will be jumping come the last week of January and I can't wait to be part of the excitement.  Be sure to check out the newest page on my website!!

Party... With A Purpose

Last year, I joined the board of directors for Eighteen89, a social, mission-driven organization that benefits the YMCA.  I was always raised to give back to your community, and it is something that I strive to do regularly whether by volunteering my time, donating funds or in this case, donating my expertise.  Eighteen89 was in need of a philanthropic/ social chair and when a friend called me to ask for my help and after learning more about the organization and those who they serve, I excitedly joined the team.  In 2008, I was elected President of the Board.

So, one thing to know about me is that I like reality shows... the ones like Survivor and the Amazing Race.  I find them amusing and my husband and I always say we're going to apply to go on the Amazing Race.  Great way to see the world on someone else's dime, right?!  Yes, this is relevant, I didn't just go off on a tangent.  So last year I developed a "scavenger hunt" along Howard Avenue for Eighteen89.  It's based on the Amazing Race concept where we split people into teams and have them race from one place to another by figuring out clues that will lead them to their next "pit stop".

This past Saturday,over 50 people came out to MacDintons in South Tampa to race up and down Howard Avenue figuring out their clues and trying to get to the finish line first.  We named all of the teams after YMCA programs like Camp Cristina, which is a 66-acre facility in Riverview, that Eighteen89 supports during the holidays by passing out gifts and food to migrant families and foster families who wouldn't otherwise have much to celebrate during the holidays.  I guess you can say the scavenger hunt was a little bit of education and a whole lot of fun!
