The countdown has begun!! There are only seven more weeks until the Inaugural Barbara Hobbs Gala in Tampa! This year’s theme is the “Super Tailgate For Charity.” All the money raised goes directly to provide vital services for people with intellectual and physical disabilities as well as specialized, assistive equipment and facilities in the Greater Tampa area. Few of these would exist without the support of the local community. What a great event this is set to be. It doesn’t get much better than this!!
