Raymond James and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers team up to support children’s hospitals through the Kicking for Kids program
For every field goal Bucs placekicker, Patrick Murray made during the 2014 regular season, the financial services firm donated $1,000 to designated Tampa Bay-area children’s hospitals, including All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Fla., St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa, Fla., and Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, Fla.
On February 27, Murray and mascot Captain Fear joined Raymond James representatives in presenting checks totaling $21,000 to the benefitting children’s hospitals at One Buccaneer Place, the team’s training facility. Since the Raymond James Kicking for Kids program began in 2000, it has raised more than $271,000 for local children’s hospitals.

“At Raymond James, we believe in supporting the communities. Giving back is an important part of our culture,” said Ira Federer. “We’re thrilled to be able to provide support to the programs at our area hospitals that go directly to helping children.”
During the event, Murray and Captain Fear visited with the attending outpatient children, their families and hospital staff. The honored guests also enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of the training facility.
