One of our favorite holiday traditions is teaming up with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office to help Santa deliver gifts to some exceptional Tampa Bay area families involved with the Family Enrichment Center, a non-profit, community-based agency that provides a variety of family centered programs.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Christmas Luncheon

Families from the Family Enrichment Center are treated to a traditional meal, and children receive an assortment of gifts from Santa during the holiday event held in December at St. Lawrence Church. The luncheon is planned and coordinated by Dee Solomon, the wife of the late Freddie Solomon, a former University of Tampa star and two-time Super Bowl champion with the San Francisco 49ers. Freddie and Dee had coordinated the event for 20 years prior to his passing.
