The Tampa Bay Lightning Hurricane Relief fund received four big donations from Lightning legends on Wednesday.
Martin St. Louis, Vincent Lecavalier, Brad Richards and Dave Andreychuk's families all donated $10,000 to the Hurricane Relief Fund.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the fund is less than $5,000 short of its goal of raising at least $50,000 for victims of Hurricane Irma.
Extensive damage was caused to the entire state of Florida by Hurricane Irma which made landfall on Sunday, first hitting the Florida Keys. Negative impacts have been felt by millions of people in many different regions across the state, including Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Naples, Lakeland, Tampa Bay and Jacksonville.
We welcome fans and members of the community who wish to support those in need by joining us in making a donation. Any donation of any amount is appreciated. From all of us at the Tampa Bay Lightning, thank you for your generosity and support.
Fans can donate here. The Lightning will also be accepting donations at their 2017 Fan Fest on Saturday at AMALIE Arena and at every Lightning preseason game this season.
On Tuesday, The National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA), National Hockey League (NHL), Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning announced a joint donation of $2.7 million for hurricane relief to those affected across the state of Florida by Hurricane Irma.
