Rosemary Armstrong Honored as Community Hero

This past Friday our very own Rosemary Armstrong was recognized by the Tampa Bay Lightning as a Community Hero for the pro bono work she has done for low income and vulnerable Tampa Bay area residents, especially the work she has done after starting Crossroads for Florida Kids.

In addition to being formally recognized as a Community Hero on the video board during the Lightning’s 4-0 win on Friday, Rosemary was also awarded $50,000 to donate to the three charities Crossroads for Florida Kids, Children First, and Community Law Program in St. Pete.

Lightning forward, Brett Connolly, narrates a touching video that highlights the heroic work Rosemary has done in the Tampa Bay area for nearly 30 years. “Giving a voice to those without one, that’s a hero, that’s Rosemary Armstrong.” A link to the video can be found below.

Crossroads for Florida Kids and Rosemary Armstrong are grateful to have received this honor and the generous donation that will certainly help those that still need a voice.
