Halloween 2008 Tailgate Party Fundraising

Halloween 2008 Tailgate Party

Philadelphia, PA (November 7, 2008) Knows as “JesEsterly” on the Eagles Message Board, fan Jesse organizes a regular tailgate party in the Wachovia parking lot to provide fun, food and friendly competition for Eagles fans before home games, and to assist Fans Helping Fans in the process.

Known as the “TCB Tailgate,” the well-run and very well-attended tailgate party features great food, flowing drinks, a professional DJ supplying the tunes, competitive tailgate games and a complete flat-screen TV set-up to catch all of the pre-game shows and keep track of other games.

During the 2008 season, fans have attended from as far away as Canada. Those attending the tailgate party are asked to make a donation.

Proceeds go toward several good causes in addition to Fans Helping Fans. “Money is used to send flowers to families of fellow members of the Eagles Message Board who pass on, and sending care packages to soldiers overseas who are Eagles fans. Those are just two examples,” explained Jesse, a Marine.

Special events at the TCB Tailgate have included a Halloween costume party before the Falcons game and a Salute to the Troops before the Giants game. The date of the latter is significant to Jesse. “It’s the fourth anniversary of my unit taking Fallujah, November 10 is the U.S. Marine Corps birthday, Veterans Day is the 11th, and the Toys for Tots drive is this month.” Tailgaters who donated toys received free tickets for a drawing to win a baseball cap autographed by Eagles players, which was donated by Fans Helping Fans.

Eagles football, tailgates, being with fellow fans, and helping others in need – the perfect combination of Fans Helping Fans’ mission!
