Our very own Ambassador!

That's right! Tessa was chosen to be an Ambassador for the March of Dimes Tampa Bay!

Last week she was followed by 10 Connects for a story that will air Friday morning between 5-7am!

The busy-ness didn't stop there! She's was out spreading the word about prematurity. Her mama, Tiffany and her visited ClearChannel where they recorded a public service announcement that is airing THIS week on US103.5 and Mix100.7!

Here are a few shots from that visit...

Word is My Fox Tampa Bay will also be doing a story on Fight Club this week!!! Keep an eye out for Miss Tessa and The Nuggets!

The first rule of Fight Club....


Well....not really BUT, that's just what we did. Tiffany organized a fund raising event with local sports bar, Ferg's. We ran a beer tub, and all tips collected are going straight to the fight for preemies via the March of Dimes!

The people under the stairs
Back row L to R: Preemie Papas - Ryan and Tony
Front row: Christina (our friend and mama to two BEEFY non preemies - seriously, the younger one could be the Michelin Baby!), Tiff, Megan and Jenna!
Not pictured is Nicole. She had to leave before the camera situation was under control (technical difficulties).

All the way from Jacksonville... Tim and Dave!

Jason, Christina, and Ryan

The guys covering for us while we had a "staff meeting"

To say we have generous friends and family would be a gross understatement! The outpouring of support was phenomenal for our first Bottles 4 Babies event. That's right, "FIRST!" We are already cookin' up plans for another down the road!

Fight Club friend and supporter, Eric!

You might recognize a couple of these friendly faces! Josh and Lauren, parents to the precious Green Beans, drove all the way out to support us! And, guys, it's a hike! I've said it before, I'll say it again, these two are amazing! (And, their friend's were a blast too!) Their Green Bean Bracelets are another great way to support the MOD!

Two of our beloved Bayfront Nurses, Heather and Kelly!

Let's give some credit where it's due... First, a BIG thank you to all the friends and family who came out to support this cause! As you well know, The March of Dimes is very near and dear to our hearts. To have you buy our sides, well, that's just priceless. And, we can't forget the loved ones who were home caring for our little miracles while we were out!

Next, we want to give a shout out to Mark Ferguson and the rest of the gang at Ferg's! You guys are the best! We hope to work together again soon.


With our awesome bar-backs!

Our shirts were donated by Tampa Bay Imaging! Thanks guys! They were a hit and we even had some guy outside a bar take pictures! Nicely done!

When it was quitin' time, we hit the town to celebrate our successful evening!

Busy bees, Shelli-Rae and Shandy, managed to fit us into a weekend that was packed, to say the least!

Really curious as to what I was saying here. It couldn't have been good - get a load of his face!

Tony and friends, Brandon and Nick

Such fun! Stay tuned for info on our next Fight Night!
