The summer is coming to an end and all the back-to-school celebrations are really gearing up.
Cigar City Magazine and Westside Barbershop are teaming up to host a back-to-school drive on Sunday, Aug. 18 loaded with giveaways.
From noon until 7 p.m. families can meet Tampa Bay Bucs players and score Bucs giveaways.
There will be free book bags for the first 100 kids ages 5 - 14 and free hair cuts for the first 100 boys ages 5 - 17. Free hot dogs will be offered for the entire family while supplies last.
Additionally, there will be drawings for Bucs football game tickets.
Take a ride on the Gyrosphere, which will be on-site, and proceeds from ticket sales will benefit needy children in the community.
The Westside Barbershop is located at 2800 N. MacDill Ave., Tampa.
