Lightning Community Heroes

See “Lightning Foundation.”

Lightning Foundation

The Lightning Foundation is dedicated to investing its resources and leadership for the enrichment of the people of Tampa Bay, focusing on meeting basic human needs and enhancing lives. The foundation organizes and executes a number of fundraisers throughout the year, as well as aiding in the efforts of charitable organizations throughout the state of Florida. 

In-Game Silent Auctions

The Lightning Foundation conducts a live, in-game auction at section 120 every game night. These one-of-a-kind silent auctions will feature dynamic sports memorabilia from not only your favorite members of the Tampa Bay Lightning but other stars in the sports world, past and present. All proceeds will benefit the Lightning Foundation and its initiative of giving back in the community.

The Lightning Community Hero Program

Lightning owner Jeff Vinik, along with his wife, Penny, launched the Community Heroes initiative at the beginning of the 2011-2012 season to distribute $10 million dollars to deserving grassroots community heroes throughout the Tampa Bay community over the next five years. Last season, the Lightning honored a Community Hero at each of the Lightning’s 41 regular season games and awarded a $50,000 check to a non-profit charity of his or her choice. Over the course of the 2011-2012 season, a total of $2,050,000 was distributed to worthy community causes. We are looking forward to celebrating Community Heroes at each of our 41 home games this season and to awarding each Hero with $50,000 to designate to worthy causes yet again, with the goal of distributing $2,050,000 throughout the community over the course of the season.

Fans are encouraged to log on to http://tampabaylightning.com/heroes to receive additional details about the program, as well as to nominate deserving individuals who are making the Tampa Bay area a better place to live, work and play.

Tampa Bay Lightning License Plates

Your license to promote youth and sports in Florida is as near as your local motor vehicle tag agency office. The Florida Sports Foundation and the Tampa Bay Lightning encourage you to purchase the specialty tag of the Bolts. Proceeds from the additional $25 tag fee directly support the Lightning Foundation and the development of major and regional sports events throughout Florida. Visit your local tag office or www.flasports.com to purchase!

Lightning Vision Scoreboard

Manufactured by Daktronics, the Lightning Vision scoreboard is one of the largest indoor scoreboards in the NHL and NBA. The high definition 6mm board has the highest level of clarity of a video board approximately 30 feet tall and 50 feet wide. To support content for the new display, major components of the Lightning Vision control room and production facilities were also upgraded to high definition. Additionally, new speakers under the display will better cover the ice/arena floor with sound.
