6th Annual Tailgate Fundraiser Huge Success

The Sertoma Club’s annual Tailgate Fundraiser for Charity was once again a huge success. Â Started in 2006, the event drew a large crowd to The Coop on Key Road behind Williams Brice Stadium.

Rod Lorick, Mark Shirley and Willie Scott promoted and attended. Rod and Willie played at USC. Mark played at Clemson

Fans of both teams attended the fundraiser and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, despite the loss by Clemson. Â Attendees enjoyed all-you-can-eat food, an open bar, music, giveaways and the game on big screen televisions. Â Best of all, all proceeds will be donated to the various charities the Sertoma Club regularly supports (13 over the last 12 months).
