Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago (BBBSMC) and BBBSMC Board Member Mark Kaufman hosted the 8th Annual Tailgate Party presented by Athletico in the Upper Terrace Suite at U.S. Cellular Field on Saturday, September 20th. The night was full of tailgate-ready guests in their favorite sports team and alma mater gear! There was a DJ playing music for all ages, competitive games of bean bag toss, gourmet ballpark food, and a silent auction filled with fabulous items. Guests were able to enjoy many different football games streamed on the TVs and even on the stadium’s Jumbotron!

This year's event grossed $165,000 putting Tailgate over the $800,000 mark in its 8th year of success! BBBSMC was able to share our end of year video with the guests, highlighting some of our site-based program matches, community based program matches, E program events, and other major fundraising events from the past year.

Our organization also celebrated Mark Kaufman’s 50th birthday. Guests enjoyed a short video capturing some of Mark’s milestone moments in his life. His wife Maryann and 3 daughters were able to share Birthday wishes for him in the video as well.

It was a great night of a celebration and we cannot wait until next year’s Tailgate Party!
