Seminole Hard Rock Tampa to ‘Go Gold’ In Support of Tampa Bay Rowdies Campaign

TAMPA, Fla. (September 17, 2015) – Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa will support the Tampa Bay Rowdies “Go Gold” campaign during the Wednesday, September 30, soccer match against Indy Eleven at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg.

Prior to the 7:30 p.m. start of the match, Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will stage a pre-match tailgate party at 6 p.m. which will include live entertainment by local Hard Rock Cafe Tampa ambassador band “Infinity on High.” A gold carpet ceremony at 5:30 p.m. will precede the tailgate party.

During the month of September, the Rowdies will “Go Gold” to help raise awareness for the fight against childhood cancer, the number one disease killer of children in the United States.

Gold is the ribbon color that represents childhood cancer awareness, while September is the month of increased exposure and awareness. Every day 43 children in the United States are told they have cancer.

All of the September matches for the Rowdies will feature halftime check presentations from schools, businesses and organizations to pediatric cancer organizations to include Seminole Hard Rock Tampa’s $10,000 donation at halftime of the match against Indy Eleven.
