Hey everyone!  I know that I told you about a really cool, community event that the ACC Was doing (the post about the Children's Cancer Center and the Bowling Championship), but this is a really cool event I had to mention to. 

It's not that often that big events leave something positive in the community that hosts them, so when they do, I like to at least mention it.  So, here it is:

Starting just hours before kickoff and concluding with the final whistle of the Championship Game, 6,000 youth and their families will take place in this celebration, which will incorporate a tremendous lineup of FanFest festivities, including games, music, prizes, the Under Armour Football Combine and much more. 

Meanwhile, youth cheerleaders will learn new dances, cheers, and motions from ACC cheerleaders who will also sign autographs and take pictures.

The Celebration continues inside Raymond James Stadium where the north and south end zones will be packed with Youth Celebration participants during the pre-game Salute to Youth Football. 

The Youth Celebration participants will then sit back and watch (most for the first time) the pageantry, camaraderie, competition and sportsmanship of ACC Football.

Now, how cool is that...that's more than 6,000 kids that get to experience all of the action.  Anyway, I hope you think it's as cool as I do. 

Keep checking back because we're still bringing you all of the Tampa Bay area events surrounding the ACC Football Championship, so stay tuned.  Plus, we'll keep bringing you other great things to do in Tampa Bay.
