Warrenton KIA 2018 Traveling Tailgate Fundraiser Raises $8,432.00 For Youth Athletics

Warrenton, Ore. – The Warrenton KIA Traveling Tailgate Fundraiser ventured the
area to our local schools and set up for a great time with each of the communities!
For every tailgate we brought prizes, a halftime raffle giveaway, a large food
donation from Warrenton Walmart, free T-shirts, Games, Music and lots of FUN! At
each event the local home team was able to raise $200.00 per touchdown to reach a
maximum donation of $1000.00 from Warrenton KIA. Additional funds could be
raised from collected raffle funds and concession sales of the food donations. All
funds raised benefit school-wide athletic programs and booster clubs for each
respective school.

Collectively, our five Traveling Tailgate Events raised a total of $8,432.00 for the
participating area schools!

Both students and adults alike were able to join in on the fun at the tailgates. Our
challenge games of corn-hole and football toss were just difficult enough to bring
out the competitive spirit in all who tried. We thank all the students and families
that stopped by to join the fun! Each high school community had their own unique

When asked about the goal of the Traveling Tailgate, Roxanne
Williams-Morinville stated “We may be located in Warrenton but we really
appreciate all of our surrounding area. This was an effort to create a
wide-reaching program to do some good in all the local communities. The
schools we worked with were so receptive and gracious to us, it was a pleasure
to work with them and the events were lots of fun!”

Coach Ian O’Brien of Warrenton High School said “We are very appreciative of
Warrenton KIA’s support for two of our football games. We are fortunate for
everything they do for Warrenton High School students.” The music, games and
prizes created a great high school tailgating atmosphere to go along with our
free BBQ we have prior to each home football game.
