Bucs treat military moms and spouses to a spa day

Mother's Day came a little early Friday for 50 mothers from Central Florida who received a spa day as part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fourth Annual "Mother's Day Makeover."

Throughout the month of April, the Buccaneers searched for compelling stories of mothers who are currently U.S. military members, are mothers of U.S. military members, or are spouses/partners of a U.S. military member and would benefit from a day of pampering and relaxation.

This year's participants enjoyed a new twist: The team opened up its doors at One Buccaneer Place, transforming its state-of-the-art facility into a spa. The date is considered the United States' annual Military Spouse Appreciation Day.

On Friday morning, the 50 mothers enjoyed a spa experience that included manicures, massages, hair stylings, makeup and tips from a professional fashion consultant. They also received special gift bags, including donations from the Buccaneers, International Diamond Center and Walgreens.
