What a great day!
Our oldest tiger, Flavio, still knows how to have fun
Jamie and Jarred strap on a trailer load of donated Christmas trees
Kim, Sharyn, Elaina and Jarred stack Christmas trees on trailer
We had to make two trips there were so many trees for the cats
Volunteers don't mind getting all sappy if it means fun for the big cats
Piles of Christmas trees are everywhere. Will need lots of help to hand out.
It stopped raining long enough to load them and unload them at the sanctuary
Tampabay Lightning told us Howie's interview would be on the Jumbotron
It played to a sold out house of about 20,000 fans who now know about BCR

What really shocked us was that when we got there we found out they had given us Suite seats in a private room with a butler, buffet, wine, and all kinds of cookies (kept at exactly 110 degrees) snacks and drinks. We felt like royalty. Thank you Tampabay Lightning staff for all you did on your workday for us and for a great night of fun and hockey.
