For years, football has been just about as associated with Thanksgiving Day as the turkey and dressing; in Galveston, those two worlds converged in their own special way.
Through their charitable foundation, Mike Evans — the Galveston native and standout wide receiver for the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers — and wife Ashli Evans brought food and fellowship to locals in need at his second annual Thanksgiving Luncheon in Galveston on Saturday.
“It’s a blessing to be able to give back to the community who has been so supportive of Mike and I throughout the years,” Ashli Evans said. “Our hope is that everyone is able to enjoy a warm, home-cooked meal for the holidays. We are grateful for all the volunteers who made it all possible.”
