Night with the Lightning

Nearly 100 guests joined us for our annual Night with the Lightning on Thursday, February 8 to watch the Tampa Bay Lightning take on the Vancouver Canucks. During the game, United Way Suncoast mission was shared with the nearly 20,000 attendees to increase community awareness of the services United Way Suncoast offers.

Regions Bank generously donated use of their suite for our Spirit of Suncoast Award winners, who were all featured on the jumbotron during the first intermission.  

The Spirit of Suncoast Awards are given out each year to recognize companies who go above and beyond in their support of United Way Suncoast and fully embrace our mission to fight for the education and financial stability of everyone in our community. Congratulations to the winners!
