Beach volleyball team raising money for Christmas toys

- The Tampa Bay Beach Bums host volleyball tournaments every month, but this weekend will be different.

Their next tournament will raise money for Operation Santa, providing toys for children in need, just in time for Christmas. This group started about four years ago with just four players and has since grown into a league with 2,000 members. They welcome players of all skills levels and say it's a great way to enjoy fellow comraderies as well as everything Gulfport has to offer.
