Be Great Tailgate

September 24, 2020 • VIRTUAL EVENT

For the past 82 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids has been a safe haven for thousands of kids who need it… a place that provides help with homework, healthy activities, a hot meal, a nurturing mentor, and a place where they can find friendship, support, and a sense of normalcy.

This year has been a bit different, as we had to close our doors on March 16 due to COVID-19. We immediately put a plan in motion to ensure that our kids and families would still have access to the meals and snacks they rely on. We welcomed our members back into the Clubs in June, and are preparing to offer a full-day Return to Learn program this fall.

While COVID-19 has impacted our operations, it also is affecting this year’s Be Great Tailgate. Given the uncertainty of the safety of a large-scale event, we have decided to make this year’s tailgate a virtual event.

While we will certainly miss enjoying the evening with you in person, we hope that we can still count on your support for the Be Great Tailgate!

Join us on Facebook and our website on September 24 at 7:00 pm for our virtual program!
