    Tampa, Fla. (April 4, 2017) – JWC Florida, the restaurant and bar group with ten locations in the Tampa/St. Pete’s area, has announced a $30,000 sponsorship for the St. Anthony’s Triathlon scheduled for late this month. The 34th Annual St. Anthony’s Triathlon will take place on the weekend of April 28th-30th in St. Petersburg, Fla. Teams from each of the group’s Florida bars will participate in the event including owners Marcus Winters, Sean James, and Finbarr James.

    “The (more athletic!) staff and management at all our area locations are really excited to have a group presence at this upcoming triathlon. It’s the kind of participation we’ve always planned whereas an area business, we get to ‘show up’ and take pride in our local community life. The bonus is boosting a local initiative which annually spotlights the St. Petersburg/Tampa region. Here’s our chance to give back, combined with a great bonding opportunity for our very special – and dedicated – staff-team members, who are training hard…it’s a lot of swimming, biking and running, but we’re up for it!” -Sean James, Owner
