Every year the Tampa Bay Rays and their wives

wore Tommy Bahama and were styled by fashion stylist Tamy Lugo. The player’s
wives were dressed and styled by Penelope T. Boutique and the teenage dream
girls were dressed and styled by Don Me Now (Styling & Clothing Lounge).

Prior to the show there was a meet and greet
with the players with lots of food and drinks including champagne and Ray-tinis.
