  • 2023 Tailgating Competition! Join the fun and “Make a Splash”. When you reserve a tailgate spot you are eligible to enter the tailgate competition. It is free! We decided to pick a theme for the tailgate competition that draws attention to one of our beneficiaries, Stroud Water Research Center, with its focus on freshwater research. Unleash your creativity! From decorations, to costumes and the food you are serving – a healthy freshwater ecosystem provides you with an abundance of options.

Can’t attend, but you’d still like to support the Stroud Water Research Center and Penn Vet New Bolton Center? 100% of online donations will go DIRECTLY to our beneficiaries!
