Tailgate 4 The TriState will be raising funds for Hurricane Sandy relief before today’s Giants/Green Bay Packers game as some tailgating crews have joined the cause. Many have not just been chomping at the bit to help, but to chomp into some great BBQ as well.
FRO will be donating 50% of proceeds from Tailgate 4 The Tri-State to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City in support of hurricane relief efforts. The other 50% will go to the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund. The Mayor’s Fund retains no administrative fee, and one hundred percent of donations are being dispersed to relief efforts and organizations. Funds will support immediate aid needs – including, food, water and hygiene supplies – as well as long-term relief and restoration.
The Fan Van Party Bus will help us raise donations with some raffles of Giants jerseys, Cheerleaders at the Giants game, and possibly some former Giants players may show up as they have in the past. They offer a buffet style tailgate with one price covering all, including the DJ.
Top Shelf Tailgate is the country’s first franchise tailgating opportunity. Top Shelf offers trailers that are state of the art & built by them from the ground up to accommodate any possible need. Catering to both children & adults the versatility is sure to please everyone. The kids can play the latest video games as the adults watch the big game on HD thanks to our DIRECTV satellite,
while our sound system keeps the music going & party alive. A private bathroom is a luxury in the parking lot as well as the back yard. The double keg taps conveniently serve guests the beverage of choice. The possibilities are endless!
Top Shelf Tailgate will be accepting donations for T4T, for those seeking food and a chance to win Giants jersey’s can go to The Fan Van Party Bus
Also on hand by the Fan Van will be GMEN Shirts. GMEN Shirts will have their shirts, sweats, hoodies, and more. Portions of those sales today will go towards T4T. So one could enjoy some music, food, beer, and grab some GMEN swag to show off your Big Blue pride.
It is very easy to participate. Just do what one normally does before any home game, tailgate!! Have fun! Invite friends and family to make it a t rue game worth remembering. That is 90% of what we would like to accomplish. There are three options to do your part for Tailgate 4 The Tr-iState:
A group or individual could make one lump sum donation from everyone in that tailgate as well.
The CELEBRITY APPRENTICE donation. This is for very few willing to make the kind of donation that speaks volumes.
Many will laugh at the last one, but you never know how generous someone will be. But obviously, any kind of donation is accepted.
However you would like to raise donations for these causes, we leave that up to you. Just keep it fun and legal for everyone.
Big thanks to Dan Vollmayer of The JETway for putting the graphics together for out Facebook page. He gave his time when he really did not have any to make sure we had something colorful to entice others to join T4T.
Those tailgating groups helping out have been affected by Sandy themselves. It says a lot to help others in need when you are one of those as well. Dave Matteo from the Fan Van Party bus is from Ocean Grove, NJ. He has his own issues from Sandy but is willing to help us raise funds for those less fortunate. That to me is the epitome of selfless.
