In the News


BIG thanks to everyone who joined us at the 2015 Tailgate Party on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at US Cellular Field in the Upper Terrace Suite! The annual Tailgate Party began as a small gathering of family and friends in the Kaufman family's home. It has now grown to almost 200 people and has been hosted at Northerly Island, Soldier Field, and now U.S. Cellular Field for the second year in a row. We also want to send a huge thanks out to Little Sister Kaylee and Big Sister Kelly who told their match story to all our guests at the event. Our signature mission moments are a great opportunity for everyone to see where the funds raised from this event go towards!

Everyone had an excellent time watching the college football games (especially the IOWA game - Go Hawkeyes!) and dancing to the great music. Gourmet tailgate food was served and everyone was sent home with a bottle of Far Niente Dolce. The Tailgate Party was once again a huge success and raised over $105,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters and counting!
