MIKE EVANS AND THE BUCCANEERS ROOKIE CLUB TO BRING HOLIDAY CHEER TO ALL CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL PATIENTS TUESDAY

On Tuesday, December 9, wide receiver Mike Evans and more than a dozen members of the Buccaneers Rookie Club, along with Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear, will spread holiday cheer to some of their youngest fans currently sidelined by illness at All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. From 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. the group will spread throughout the hospital to deliver Buccaneers pennants, sign autographs, and visit with patients who are currently hospitalized as the holidays approach. The visit is an annual tradition by the Buccaneers Rookie Club, which wraps up an eventful season of community activities each year with a trip to All Children’s Hospital.
 
Since entering the NFL, the Buccaneers rookies have participated in a variety of outreach activities as part of an effort to engage the team’s youngest players with the local community. The rookie members have helped dedicate Buccaneers Academy Fitness Zones at local schools, greeted military at MacDill Air Force Base, and hosted a PLAY 60 celebration for local students, among other events.
