The 2017 Seminole Hard Rock Girls calendar will be unveiled on Wednesday, December 7, during a public event at Hard Rock Cafe in Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa.
Hosted by Brian Fink with entertainment provided by DJ Davy Rolando, the event will include the 2017 Seminole Hard Rock Calendar Girls sporting custom dresses designed by Dara Lauria, who has been featured in Country Music Weekly.
During the event, a formal reveal of the 12 local charities the property has partnered with in connection with the calendar will also take place. While several charities applied to be featured alongside the calendar, the 12 selected were:
- The Angelus
- Children’s Dream Fund

The calendar will go on sale starting Friday, December 9, at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa retail outlets. The cost per calendar will be $12 and all of the funds generated from sales through 2017 will be distributed evenly amongst the selected 12 local charities.
Each charity will be featured alongside a 2017 Seminole Hard Rock Calendar Girl in connection with her month.
Additionally, each organization will receive a benefit concert featuring Tampa Bay talent and a customized limited edition Seminole Hard Rock Tampa memorabilia item, which will be sold in the property’s retail stores with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the charity.
The photo shoot for the 11th annual calendar, which features 20 of Seminole Hard Rock Tampa’s hand-selected female team members, took place over the summer. The production team spent four days with Joey Wright, owner of Joey Wright Photography, shooting at various locations along the iconic Tampa Riverwalk.
During the photo shoot, the 2017 Seminole Hard Rock Girls were given the rock star treatment with professional hair, make-up and wardrobe styling by the Glam Squad. Each girl was decked out in trendy swimwear and accessories featuring pops of neon colors, theming the calendar Neon Glam. Get an inside look here.
We hope to see you in the Hard Rock Cafe on December 7th!
