More than 650 festive fans turned out for the Tailgate Tour’s first party at the Oshkosh Premier Waterfront Hotel & Conference Center.
The event benefited Christine Anne Domestic Abuse Services Inc., an agency servicing individuals and families in Winnebago and Green Lake Counties who struggle with the effects of domestic abuse. The agency also educates the community on the dynamics of abuse and how it can help in the fight against it. More information on the organization can be found online at www.christineann.net.
According to the organization’s executive director, Julie Fevola, the event provided not only a monetary benefit, but also helped raise awareness for their cause.
“It helped get our message out,” she explained. “Tonight energized our supporters, and also saw everyone having a great time.”
Cornerback and special teams ace Jarrett Bush enjoyed his first day.
“It was awesome,” he said. “You could sense the excitement in the room. It was like a high school rally, but really more than that.”
“I’m looking forward to each day, to see the fans.”
Day 2 is up next.
