On Tuesday, August 14th, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Tampa Bay Storm were awarded the Chief’s Certificate of Appreciation by the Tampa Police Department for hosting the third annual Dodgeball For a Cause Tournament in July before a Storm football game at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
The Lightning Foundation partnered up with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment to hold the annual dodge ball tournament. More than 500 participants were in attendance for the event, which raised more than $12,000 for the Tampa Police Athletic League. In the three years that this event has been going on, nearly $50,000 has been directed to law enforcement charities and benevolent associations. The Tampa Police Athletic League is in the middle of a $4-million capital campaign with the cornerstone project being a new gymnasium and equipment to serve their approximately 500 youth.

The Lightning Foundation is committed to this community, and this is just another shining example.
