Local business pays gift forward

The Color Express, together with Land O’ Lakes Gators Youth Football, hosted a Community Day on March 31, at Land O’ Lakes Heritage Park, 5401 Land O’ Lakes Blvd. The Color Express was a winner of the United Health Care/Buccaneers Spotlight on Small Business contest, and to pay it forward, it shared the prize with the community. The event was open to the public and featured the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Street Team Experience and some of their cheerleaders. Other highlights of the day included a football clinic headed by Land O’ Lakes High School Football Head Coach Chad Walker, a DJ, an instrument petting zoo, and canvas art painting, courtesy of The Color Express.

As the crowd cheers him on, 10-year-old C.J. Coleman, of Land O’ Lakes, tests his skills during a basic tackling drill. The drill was one of the many football experiences at the event.
