Mike Evans Family Foundation’s 13 Pillars of Strength will celebrate 13 individuals from the Tampa Bay area who have overcome adversity and are now making a difference in the community. This will include people within the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization and community leaders nominated by the public. If you or someone you know is a pillar of strength within the Tampa community, we encourage you to fill out our short nomination form.

We will feature each of the chosen nominees on our website and social channels. 13 Pillars of Strength will culminate at our Winter Gala on December 17, 2021 at the Tampa Marriott Water Street where all individuals will be honored on stage. As honorary guests, these 13 individuals will receive a ticket to the event and the option to bring a plus one. They also will have the chance to meet Super Bowl Champion Mike Evans and his wife, Ashli Evans!
