We enjoyed a morning of fun in the sun at the Davis Island Dog Beach with 12 alumni and 9 dogs. It was a fantastic opportunity for those alumni whose schedules make it difficult for them to attend our weekday happy hours to join us and reconnect.
Feeding Tampa Bay

Tampa Connection members, as well as their friends and families, inspected perishable and non-perishable grocery items to ensure their quality. We then packaged those goods for distribution to our food insecure neighbors. Our efforts ensured that Feeding Tampa Bay would be able to deliver thousands of meals to our community in the days following the event.
After volunteering at Feeding Tampa Bay’s warehouse, we gathered at Coppertail Brewing Co. There, Tampa Connection friends old and new raised a toast to our contribution to the community!
