About Us

  Crown Collectors Club of Tampa Bay

Our Charity - Southeaster Guide Dogs
 Our Club was established in Tampa Florida about 20 years ago by a diehard group of Hallmark collectors  whose vision was  to  enjoy and share the spirit of Christmas with others who were as passionate about collecting as they were.    Over the years, the club has attracted  members from all over the  Tampa Bay area,  to include a  few wintering "snowbirds" in  our ever growing collecting club .
   
 Club meetings are held  on the second Tuesday of each month, January through November at a local restaurant.  We meet to socialize, share the latest collecting news and strategize our continuing efforts for our local charities.  Our club members have donated food and clothing  to the homeless,  as well as  female veterans and their children who were facing a difficult time.  We have made Easter Baskets for nursing homes and provided dinner and entertainment for Hope Lodge, a facility which provides rooms for patients and their families while undergoing treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center.   

For fun, we made a video of members singing  an original song for one of the Hallmark conventions in Kansas City and created a created a skit for a regional event.  Some of us may not have much talent but we are gung-ho and enthusiastic!
