Topgolf Tampa is one of the country’s few premier three-story golf entertainment complexes. Players hit golf balls containing computer microchips that track each shot’s accuracy and distance while also awarding points for hitting targets on the outfield. The venue offers an upscale, laid-back experience with an impressive food and drink menu.

About the Bloomingdale Library Attack Survivor:
In April 2008, the young woman, formerly known as the Bloomingdale Library Attack Survivor, was brutally raped, beaten and left to die outside of the Bloomingdale Library in Brandon, Florida. Equipped with an incredible will to survive, she did not die that night, and has spent almost eight years working hard to recover from the brutal attack. Queena, now 26 years old, was almost ready to graduate from high school and continue her education on a full scholarship to the University of Florida, but on that night, her life changed in an instant. Queena cannot walk, talk, see or eat on her own, but she is making improvements. She communicates through widening her eyes, smiling and clenching her fists. She requires around-the-clock care and attends daily physical, occupational and experimental therapies to aid her recovery. The recovery process is slow, but very noticeable, as she slowly makes strides toward regaining her own normalcy every day.

Her attacker Kendrick Morris, now 25, was found guilty on all counts and was sentenced to 65 years in prison in 2010. In March 2017 Morris was re-senteced to life in prison.

The community can follow Queena’s progress on her website JoinQueena.com. This website documents Queena’s journey to regaining her life through therapy, faith and love as well as a glimpse to her daily life. Medicaid covers only $1,500 per year of the Survivor’s physical therapy and speech therapy, while nearly $70,000 is required annually for all of treatments that have helped her make such progress. State funding for her home health care is soon to be cut in half as well. These additional expenses are funded through the generosity of the community and donations from supporters like you.

Her sister, Anna, has started a 501c3 non-profit organization called Hope Heals The Brain Inc. in hopes to continue raising funds and awareness for families and individuals affected by traumatic brain injury in the Central Florida region.
