The Tampa Bay Beach Bums (TBBB) celebrated another great weekend of volleyball with a donation to the reestablished Gulfport Little League Club.  Beach Bums co-founder, Rachael Manzanares, states that “our goal is to build an inclusive community here in Tampa Bay that showcases how volleyball can bring people together on a competitive, philanthropic, professional and social level. We are so thrilled to work with the Gulfport Little League Club, and to help bring donations to an organization that inspires our youth to learn about all the wonderful things that organized sports can bring to our lives."  Needless to say, these goals are in line with the Little League.  League President Trevor Mallory chimed in that “There’s so much to be gained by sports programs for the participants and the community besides the skills of the individual sport.  Developing teamwork, building healthy bodies, and building inclusive social relationships should be part of every community program.  We share these goals with the Beach Bums.”


This past weekend’s Volley Mania 2 drew 150 teams to Gulfport – one of 15 annual events per year throughout the Tampa Bay area.  In 2019, 7 of the 15 events will be held in Gulfport.  The Gulfport Little League’s season is at the halfway point fielding 5 teams of 65 boys and girls.  “The Beach Bums donation helps ensure the little league’s continuity and ability to accept all interested players, no matter their skill or financial situation. It is another great example following the support from the City and many Gulfport sponsors,” says Bruce Donath, the leagues’ Sponsor Coordinator.


Tampa Bay Beach Bums is a sand volleyball tournament company, founded in Gulfport in 2013. A key part of their mission is to work with local charities; working to better the community that they are an active part of.  For each event held in Gulfport, the Beach Bums raise money for a different Gulfport organizations such as the MyFoundation, Operation Santa, Sonjia Plotnick Health Fund, Gulfport Neighbors, and many more. Dominick Nelson adds, “We have been working together with the city and with community leaders since our start to help raise awareness for the great businesses and programs here in Gulfport and showcase all this city has to offer."
