On Monday night, Devin White, linebacker #45 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosted over 150 guests at his 2nd annual ‘Get Live 45 Gala’ event inside the McLaren Tampa Bay showroom.
In total, the event raised over $150,000. Net proceeds from the gala will go towards the community outreach programs of Devin’s Get Live 45 Foundation, with many of the funds going towards Devin’s ‘Get Live Home Makeover’ program for foster families in Tampa Bay.
Devin was joined by some of his Buccaneers teammates for the evening, including Lavonte David, Olakunle Fatukasi, and Jamel Dean. Each guest of the gala was provided with a signature series Tampa Bay Buccaneers football so that they could walk around to each player and get their autographs on the spot, including Devin’s.
At this exclusive, private dinner event, Devin spoke about the mission of his Get Live 45 Foundation and the community outreach work that his Foundation has been doing to help foster children, foster families, and disadvantaged youth in Tampa Bay. Devin shared at the event, “I think the most important thing when you look at what I’m doing. . . I’m always there. I’m not just putting my face on it and sending people on my behalf. I’m always in attendance.”
Devin and his Get Live 45 Foundation look forward to continuing to impact foster children and foster families in Tampa Bay. Coming up in December, Devin will host his 2nd annual ‘Great White Christmas’ for foster children and he looks forward to attending in person this year now that Covid restrictions have been reduced. In Spring 2023, the Foundation will begin a new ‘Get Live Home Makeover’ for a local foster family, renovating their home to celebrate and honor them for their service as foster parents.
