TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning honored George and Leonard Levy as the 51st Lightning Community Heroes of the season during the first period of tonight's game against the New York Rangers. The Levy's, who received a $50,000 donation from the Lightning Foundation and the Lightning Community Heroes program, will donate the money to the Boys and Girls Club.
These twin brothers have worked tirelessly with civic leaders and fellow business owners to cultivate the sports, economic and community landscape that the Tampa Bay community enjoys today. They recently turned 80-years old and have been blessing Tampa Bay with a combined 160 years of community service, helping bring four professional franchises to the area and established many local youth athletic programs.
Both have been recognized separately as citizens of the year and honored for their ethics in business and work for many causes including the Boys and Girls Club, the Gold Shield Foundation, alpha House, the Centre for Women and the Salvation Army.
