has provided over 1 million dollars to youth, charitable organizations, and especially the Boys and
Girls Club of Tampa Bay.

The Sports Club can only accomplish their mission with your help and membership. We
meet at least once per month at the plush Tampa Club in downtown Tampa and our dinner meetings
are comprised of exciting local and national sports figures that speak to us at the meetings. You will never be disappointed. We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming dinner meetings because it is through your efforts that we can continue to serve the needs of our youth and the next generation in Tampa Bay.
