On Thursday, Dec. 8, 2022, Family Support Services partnered with the Tampa Bay Rays and Enchant St. Petersburg for a first-ever Home for the Holidays event at Tropicana Field. The #OfficiallyStitched event finalized adoptions for 19 children ahead of the holidays, and included an afterparty coordinated by Family Support Services, the Rays Foundation & Rowdies Soccer Fund, and Enchant St. Petersburg, an indoor holiday lights and festival experience.

With bags of special gifts from FSS and the Rays, a buffet of dinner and desserts, and early access to the Enchant ice rink, maze and more (including photos with Rays mascot Raymond and other characters), it was a magical day for all involved from start to finish.
