Last Friday night, we had a special evening at the Mercedes of Sarasota showroom, benefiting the V Foundation.
We had celebrities in attendance: auto race driver and Indy 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay. Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was there. Bucs president Brian Ford and defensive tackle Clinton McDonald joined us. Florida Gulf Coast assistant coach Tom Abatemarco was also there.
The event was catered by Main Events and Capital Grille. A special thanks to Ernie of Mercedes for helping put on such a wonderful event raising funds for cancer research. We had a number of courageous young boys and girls there, winners in the game of life as they have battled cancer.
It was an emotional evening.
