TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning honored Pam and Les Muma as the 48th Lightning Community Heroes of the season during the first period of tonight's Game 6 contest against the Montreal Canadiens. The Mumas, who received a $50,000 donation from the Lightning Foundation and the Lightning Community Heroes program, will donate the money to the University of South Florida Sport and Entertainment Management Program.
The Muma's have made it their mission to help educate the next generation of local business leaders. Graduates of the University of South Florida, Les and Pam have encouraged the brightest young leaders in the community to build their roots in Tampa Bay and strength it with their knowledge. Last year the Muma's donated $25 million to the USF College of Business as a personal thank you to the institution that helped them succeed in life.
Their unwavering dedication to the Bay area also extends to helping Tampa General Hospital, championing the hospital's research and care for newborns. Their mission from day one was to inspire and mold young minds to become strong leaders in the community. They've achieved that by timeless hours dedicated to their mission.
