Lightning Foundation Community Hero Deadline Approaching

At the beginning of the 2011-2012 hockey season, Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik and his wife Penny set out to distribute $10 Million into the Tampa Bay community over 5 years through the Tampa Bay Lightning Foundation Community Heroes program. Last season they gave $50,000 to the non-profit charity of the featured heroes choice at every one of the Lightning’s home games for a total of $2,050,000. They want to do it again in this upcoming season.
Do you know someone in the Tampa Bay area who is a grass rooted community super hero? Remember, not all heroes wear a cape or tights. There is no specific criteria for your nomination.
Here is the nomination criteria and the instructions submission.
They want to hear the story of this person, why and how they inspire you.
There are 3 deadlines to submit your nomination:
August 15, 2012, November 15, 2012, and January 15,2013.
