The Buccaneers hosted their inaugural Bucs Connection event for young professionals at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
With pre-season football already in full swing the excitement surrounding the Buccaneers season is palpable! Wednesday night at Raymond James Stadium, young Tampa professionals gathered for the inaugural Bucs Connection "Siege the Stadium" event for a preview of the approaching regular season.
"We're celebrating the start of a new football season this year," Darcie Glazer Kassewitz, Co-President of the Glazer Family Foundation, said to attendees at the event. "We also wanted to celebrate a new season of giving back to you and also to the community. We created Bucs Connection as a platform for all of you to connect both personally and professionally. You may all come from different professional backgrounds but we know that there is one common passion here tonight and that's that everyone here is a Bucs fan."
As some of Tampa's best and brightest mixed and mingled they "Sieged the Season" by participating in several activities. Fans were treated to an inside look of what's in store for the Bucs in 2016 from guest speaker and Bucs General Manager Jason Licht, participated in a Q&A with Bucs legends Michael Clayton and David Moore, tested out the virtual-reality technology that Jameis Winston uses to prepare for games, and enjoyed some free beer samples while playing GM for their own fantasy football line-up.
This event is just one of many to come as the Bucs Connection works to provide opportunities for young professionals, centered around a common love of Buccaneers football and a desire to build valuable connections.
