Be Great Tailgate Success!
September 20th, 2015
With over 320 people attending this event, and over $100,000 raised for Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids, we are considering this another BE GREAT TAILGATE SUCCESS! From delicious food at Two Scott’s, to amazing beer from Brewery Vivant, and unbelievable auction items like Grandstand tickets to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and Legend’s Tickets, this event did not miss a beat. The Seidman Wildcat Cheerleaders performed a cheer for the crowd, and we honored our BE GREAT Award winners: Wege Foundation, Taco Bell, and Bruce & Candace Matthews.
“Our supporters' commitment to creating a better future helped make our award ceremony a huge success, and models responsible civic engagement for the children in our community," said Executive Director Rick Huisman. "With child poverty at its highest in fifty years, there are so many kids who doubt their ability to build a better future for themselves. At Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth, we understand that the next generation is its own best hope; that children have the strength and courage to change their lives and community.”
Events like our Be Great Tailgate help us continue to provide world class programming to our youth. Thank you for your help and support. Mark your calendars for the next Be Great Tailgate happening on September 14, 2016.
