Bucs’ wide receiver Mike Evans spoke with Tampa Bay’s team reporter Casey Phillips at the Bruce Arians Family Foundation’s charity golf event on Monday and briefly talked about the offseason since the Super Bowl.
Evans has spent his entire career with the Buccaneers and set an NFL in 2020 after recording his seventh consecutive season with 1,000 yards or more receiving. Evans is signed through the 2023 season.
The biggest takeaway from the interview was Evans stating the team was ready to “go for two,” meaning another run at a world championship in 2021.
In other Arians Family Foundation news, the event and auction on Sunday night raised $400,000 for the foundation and their work with CASA. The event concluded on Monday with a golf tournament at Innisbrooke Resort.
Below is the mission statement for the foundation.
The Arians Family Foundation motto is “A Voice For Children” by supporting and developing programs which strives to prevent and ameliorate the abuse and neglect of children. The Arians Family Foundation supports CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) in making sure that children who are involved in the court system, as a result of abuse or neglect by their families, receive the love and help they need.
The Arians Family Foundation (AFF) was created in 2013 by Bruce and Christine Arians for reasons dear to their hearts. Christine worked for years as a family-law attorney, or as she describes, a “broken-family” attorney. She began working with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) to help ensure that children who are involved in the court system, as a result of abuse or neglect by their families, receive the help they need. The Arians Family Foundation seeks to continue helping others in their life journeys. AFF embodies the vision of a better future for children to live in where they feel safe and loved.
