On Monday, October 6 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm, Buccaneers defensive end William Gholston, wide receiver Russell Shepard, defensive tackle Akeem Spence, Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear will continue the team’s annual tradition of participating in the Metropolitan Ministries Fall Festival. For more than 20 years, the Buccaneers have served as special guests for the annual event, a brain child of the LampLighters (Ladies Assisting Metropolitan People), who host the festival for the resident children at Metropolitan Ministries. On Monday afternoon, the Buccaneers will entertain and interact with the children through games, dancing, arts and crafts, and more.
