TailGREAT Party Reimagines Tailgating

Before the Seawolves game on Saturday, June 3, the annual TailGREAT party, hosted by the Side Project, will raise money for six local charities.

This tailgate party with a twist benefits Linked by Pink, the Neighborhood Art House, the Twilight Wish Foundation, the Veterans Miracle Center of Erie, the Side Project, and a Gannon University scholarship. The entirety of the proceeds goes to these charities.

At the Side Project, donations will be used for its internship program and nonprofit incubator. The organization works with various nonprofits, charitable foundations, and others to provide “legal and professional support” and strives to have a “positive impact on the community.”

Linked by Pink intends to use donations to provide financial support for breast cancer patients and to improve breast cancer awareness, while the Neighborhood Art House offers at-risk children visual, performing, and literary art classes.

The Twilight Wish Foundation grants wishes for those over age 68 who live in poverty or other qualifying situations, while the Veterans Miracle Center of Erie provides clothes and personal items to veterans and their families. Gannon’s scholarship supports a first-year Doctor of Physical Therapy candidate.

Since 2014, over $7,500 has been raised through the Erie TailGREAT by more than 700 people.

The evening features yard games, food from The Que Abides, dessert, and drinks.

Following the party, guests are welcome to stay for the Seawolves game for only $5 more. – Tracy Geibel
