TAMPA, Florida - Lazydays recently hosted Winnebago Rally participants and local RV customers at a private party held on the Club Level of Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Among the highlights of the Dec. 9 VIP event was a meet-and-greet with special guest Dexter Jackson, the former Bucs safety who was named Super Bowl MVP for his role in the team’s Super Bowl XXXVII championship. Guests also enjoyed photo opportunities with Jackson and the Buccaneers’ Super Bowl trophy. One lucky raffle winner left the event with a helmet autographed by current Bucs cornerback Vernon Hargreaves, and all attendees received a Lazydays/Buccaneers blanket as a parting gift.
Lazydays, a proud sponsor of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, provides the team and its fans with exciting RV experiences throughout the year.
“Thanks to our partnership with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, this was truly a VIP event to remember,” Lazydays Vice President and General Manager Ron Fleming says. "Our goal is to deliver an exceptional experience to every one of our guests, and we’re honored that so many have made Lazydays an ongoing part of their RV lifestyle.”
In addition to the private party at Raymond James Stadium, the Winnebago Rally package included a four-day/three-night stay at the Lazydays RV Resort, catered dinners, entertainment, factory representation, product demonstrations and RV seminars. Participants were also able to explore Winnebago RVs currently on sale at Lazydays, including 2017 Forza and View models, which were displayed outside the event venue at Raymond James Stadium.
