August 17th my wife and I shared a terrific evening with the head coach for the Tampa Bay Lightning, John Tortorella and his wife Christine. They drove to Lakewood Ranch to meet us for dinner and to discuss ideas about fundraising for a cause that both John and I are passionate about - cancer.
We decided to have a private dinner for all the season ticket holders before a home Lightning game in which I will talk to everyone gathered. All donations from the evening will go towards benefitting the V Foundation, specifically towards a pediatric grant for cancer research in memory of Payton Wright.
John is a terrific leader and a terrific human being. Tampa is lucky to have him on board!
