About

Every Christmas, there are so many with so little or in fact, nothing.  Every child has a story.  Some are homeless, neglected and experience hardships beyond their control. Since our first annual Christmas event in 2002, the Edwards Family Foundation has continually hosted the largest annual holiday event in Tampa Bay serving hundreds of disadvantaged families. Our impact has been enormous and with the help of many incredibly generous contributors we have launched what has become one of the most meaningful children’s holiday events in this community.

The Foundation’s Christmas Gala Celebration has benefited families from various local churches, elementary schools, and community outreach programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Deaf Services Family Center, Suncoast Center, YWCA of Tampa Bay, Police Athletic League, CASA and many other organizations throughout Pinellas County. The Edwards Family Foundation is a 501(c)(3) and could not fulfill its goals without the help of many outstanding contributors. From our sponsors to our volunteers, the Foundation greatly appreciates the generosity of the people who support our mission.
