Tampa, FL -- Dozens of teens were treated to some special holiday fun Sunday afternoon thanks to former Tampa Bay Buc Ryan Nece.

Nece and his foundation held two events for Hillsborough County kids who've been abused, neglected or abandoned. The boys played laser tag, while the girls had a party at Neiman Marcus. They made their own jewelry and had their makeup done.

"To see the smiles on those girls faces after they get those makeovers, from their heads hanging down to their heads up with bright smiles, it's priceless," Ryan Nece said.

The kids were also given gifts, which they'll be able to open on Christmas morning.
