Join SCS & Junior Committee at The Tailgate 2012

On Sat., Sept. 1, Shepherd Center Society (SCS) and the Junior Committee will host The Tailgate before the Auburn University vs. Clemson University game. Held in the parking lot across the street from Vine City MARTA and the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, The Tailgate brings more than 2,000 fans together to eat good food, listen to good music and have a good time for a great cause! For the second year in a row, SCS, and now the Junior Committee, are working hard to make this event the best fan experience out there! Once again, the food trucks are participating, two big bars will meet everyone’s drink expectations, and great bands will entertain everyone until game time.

All proceeds from The Tailgate go to Shepherd Center’s SHARE Military Initiative, a comprehensive rehabilitation program of assessment and treatment for service men and women who have sustained a traumatic brain and/or PTSD in the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts.

Tickets are on sale now and start at $65. Ticket prices go up as the event approaches. SCS and Junior Committee members receive discount tickets. The Tailgate tickets cover food, drinks, tents for shade and live music throughout the day.
