Back by popular demand, the annual Sertoma Tailgate Fundraiser, sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover Columbia, will take place Saturday, September 19 for the University of South Carolina vs. Georgia football game. The event will be all-you-can-eat and will feature BBQ from celebrity chefs, farm-to-table sides from local farms, beer, wine and liquor. The cost is just $30/person or $50/couple. All proceeds will benefit local charities in the Midlands.
Sertoma Vice President and Event Chair Todd Lewis says “the Tailgate Fundraiser is an annual tailgate party before and during the Gamecock’s largest/most important away game each year. It includes a corn hole tournament, music, eating and drinking before and during the game, and watching the game while engaging in the same activities. It’s always a good time and it’s for a great cause.”
Just a few of the local charities the Columbia Sertoma Club supports annually include: Carolina Children’s Home, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Babcock Center, Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America, Boy Scouts of America, Sistercare, Palmetto Baseball League, Keep the Midlands Beautiful, Healing Species, Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands, Camp Sertoma, SC Speech-Language-Hearing Association Foundation, and others.
