Presented by Bright House, the magic of the holidays surrounded our guest at the Sixth Annual Jingle Jangle Jam, Tampa Bay’s finest holiday extravaganza benefitting children and families. Guest enjoyed festive Christmas carols and gently falling snow; seasonal martini’s, beer and wine; a gourmet holiday feast fit for Good King Wenceslas himself; decadently delicious Christmas cookies, and much more.
Our featured speaker was Leigh Anne Tuohy, who was portrayed by Sandra Bullock in the Hollywood blockbuster movie “The Blind Side.” Leigh Anne is best known for taking in homeless teenager Michael Oher and giving him the second chance that led to a football career most kids only dream about. She shares her personal blind side observations on family, life and love.
All to benefit the 14,000+ abused, neglected and at-risk children served by Eckerd, a national nonprofit organization that has given much-needed second chances to more than 150,000 children since 1968.
