September signifies something different for everyone: for some it’s the beginning of football season, for others it’s the end of summer, but for our Northern Colorado team, September means it’s time to tailgate! Each September, for the past five years, we have hosted our Windermere Foundation Tailgate Party to raise funds and spread awareness in support of a local organization dedicated to the betterment of our community.
This year, we teamed up with ChildSafe Colorado, a non-profit that provides resources, education and treatment to victims of childhood abuse. For such an amazing organization, we had no choice but to go all out. On September 17th, 2021 we joined together as a community on to party with a purpose. Our guests enjoyed complimentary drinks, complimentary food from Pepe’s Tacos and the Ball Joint, and live music performed by Kelsey Jo and the Wildcards. Special entertainment was also available for the kids in the form of balloon art, face painting and a petting zoo!
To raise funds, custom-made cups were available for purchase and prizes donated by local businesses were raffled off. Otterbox, Walmart, Pure Barre Fort Collins, Orangetheory Fitness, Board 30 Fort Collins, Ascent Climbing & Fitness Studio, Pure Drip IV, The Cupboard, Butter Cream Cupcakery, Rally5 Crafted Eats & Bar, Jax Outdoor Gear, New Belgium Brewery, Odell Brewing Co, Coyote Gold, Smilin Faces Face Paint, Painting with a Twist, Amy Vandegrift with Skin Pretty Aesthetics, and Kali Johnson with Salon One Ten were among the generous donor who contributed to the event.
With the help of our platinum donors Elevations Credit Union and Fidelity National Title Company in Northern Colorado, we were able to raise over $4,000 dollars in support of this wonderful organization.
