The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa is committed to giving back to the Tampa Bay community. One of the multiple ways we give back is through the annual Seminole Hard Rock Girls Calendar. Featuring photos of twenty gorgeous team members, this year marks the 10th anniversary of Seminole Hard Rock Girls Calendar, recently unveiled at the Hard Rock Cafe Tampa. The casino also announced their partnership with sixteen lucky Tampa Bay 501c non-profit organizations who will each receive a portion of the funds generated from calendar sales.
Each year, the lovely ladies of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino tryout to be featured in the high profile calendar. This year, the casino hand selected twenty team members who participated in a four-day photo shoot at various locations throughout the casino to produce the 2016 calendar. Each girl who is selected for the calendar receives $500 while the centerfold receives $1,000 and a trip to Las Vegas!
The 2016 Seminole Hard Rock Girls Calendar is currently on sale in the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa retail outlets. The cost per calendar is $14 and 100% of the funds generated from sales through 2016 will be distributed evenly amongst the 16 local partner charities.
In addition to calendar sales, a customized memorabilia item featuring each month’s charity will be sold throughout the property’s retail stores and the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will donate 100 percent of the proceeds generated to the charity of the month. During the charity’s selected month, the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will also host a charity slot tournament and benefit concert, where a check will be presented to the charity for the total funds raised for the month.
