July 2016 - Tailgate Fundraiser, now in its 18th year, will be held on Thursday, September 15. This premier community event will take place at the Pullman House in Menominee.
The Tailgate Fundraiser doors open at 5:00 pm. The event includes live and silent auctions, raffles and dinner. “We are especially excited to announce that Green Bay Packer football legend, Bill Schroeder, will be our featured guest,” said Paula Gruszynski, MMACF Executive Director.
Schroeder, a Wisconsin native, was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 1994. As a Packer, he scored 18 touchdowns, caught 192 receptions, and gained nearly 3,000 yards on the field. Off the field, Schroeder messages goal setting and the importance of higher education and training. In addition, he founded his own non-profit organization for children with cancer.
“The M&M Area Community Foundation works to enrich all communities in Marinette and Menominee counties. We are proud to partner with our many sponsors for this event, sharing a common vision for our area,” continued Gruszynski. “It is gratifying to know we have such broad-based support for the work of the Foundation, evidenced by the turn-out for Tailgate and other charitable giving events.”
Tickets are $35 per person or advanced reserved seating for $45 per person, and may be purchased by calling the MMACF office at 906-864-3599. All proceeds from the event benefit the mission of the M&M Area Community Foundation.
