With all of this holiday craziness behind us, we want to stop and take a moment to thank all of the amazing businesses and people who have helped make this past year a beyond successful one for us here at NHIE Tampa Bay. We couldn’t be more pleased with the outpouring of love and support we have received from so many brands around the Bay.

Early in December, we had the pleasure of lending a hand at The Ryan Nece Foundation Rockin’ Holiday Party at T Pepin Hospitality Center. Although we have helped out for the past three years now, this year was a step above. not only did we have a blast working the handcrafted, original Plinko board, created just for the event, but we took it a step further to see if we could also help organize a few gifts from around town to auction at the event.

Knowing that we were supporting such a great cause, we had no problem asking around to our favorite local spots for some donations. In true NHIE fashion, we took to our favorite local peeps and let’s just say they did NOT disappoint! From gift cards to vouchers for experiences to shopping sprees and makeovers, we had no trouble with help from our friends.


At the Plinko board, we used the gift cards we compiled from various businesses at prizes for the winning contestants. This was made possible by our friends at:

Wrights Gourmet House

Ciccio’s Restaurant Group

The Brass Tap

FitLife Foods

Soho Juice Company

The Vanity Box

Irish 31

Brew Bus

Perk’s Donut Bar


Additionally, we hooked up a few gift packs to be auctioned off as well. These were made possible by our favorites at:

Tree Umph

Seventh Ave Apothecary

Dade City Wild Things

London Phillips

ALoft Hotel Downtown Tampa

The Ritz Ybor

We are so impressed by the support and local love we give and receive from businesses and our followers around Tampa Bay. We have lots more planned for 2015 and look forward to sharing many more fun experiences and outings with you all in the coming months. Stay tuned as we continue to learn and explore about our favorite place to be, Tampa Bay! Here’s to an unforgettable 2015!

We want to continue where Ryan Nece left off and say, take some time this year to pay it forward! The Power of Giving is the greatest gift you can give someone in need. Volunteer, step up and try something new. Whatever it is, set your mind to it and make a conscious effort to step out of your comfort zone! Here’s a peek at the fun we had last night at The Rooftop Eve Party Downtown!
