Giving Back to the Tampa Bay Community

Music may be our differentiator, but philanthropy is our soul. At Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, we take giving back to our community a main part of our mission. Throughout the year, you’ll find the staff and local celebs strumming up support for causes that help to make our world a better place. Since 1971, the Hard Rock brand has been committed to a wide range of international philanthropic causes and activities.  As Hard Rockers, our actions are guided by our mottos: Love All - Serve All, All is One, Take Time To Be Kind, Save The Planet.

Hard Rock Heals Foundation

Since our doors first opened on June 14, 1971, the Hard Rock International mission has been to do well by doing good in the communities we serve. We have donated millions to causes including autism awareness, cancer prevention, human trafficking, hunger, drought, and disaster relief.Hard Rock Heals Foundation provides grants and assistance to individuals whose goal is to heal through the power of music. Partnerships with like-minded, music-centric organizations allows Hard Rock Heals Foundation the opportunity to improve lives and promote wellness.

In 2016 Hard Rock International created the Hard Rock Heals Foundation, an internal brand segment committed to championing the message that music is power. Focused on funding music-centric health and wellness programs worldwide, Hard Rock Heals Foundation seeks to partner with organizations immersed in music philanthropy.

Music is energy; it inspires, connects, and restores. Through both internal campaigns and consumer facing programs we invite the world to join our effort to improve lives and heal through the power of music.

We know that positive change is possible. Through our unique platform of worldwide cafes, hotels casinos, our passionate guests, a world-class roster of artists ambassadors and the incredible team of Hard Rockers we will make the world a better place for us all.
