Rays KaBOOM! Build Day

Photos from the KaBOOM! event at Union Academy Family Center in Tarpon Springs on November 16. More than 200 volunteers from the Tampa Bay Rays, Citizens Alliance for Progress, Inc., organizers from KaBOOM! and residents of the Tarpon Springs community pressed on through a rainy morning and afternoon to complete the playground in only one day.
