Summer and golf just go together in Florida. On Friday, they came together for a good cause as Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans hosted his Celebrity Golf Outing where his Mike Evans Family Foundation donated $25,000 to the University of South Florida in order to help start a scholarship fund for local students in need of financial assistance. They presented the check before everyone teed off and in turn, Evans’ Foundation received a $10,000 matching grant from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation Social Justice Fund, also presented on Friday morning.
“It means the world to me,” Evans said of his opportunity to give back. “It gives me a certain satisfaction that I can’t really explain. Having all the money and being able to live out my dream is great and all, but it wouldn’t mean [anything] if I wasn’t able to help other people.
