The Washington C.H. and Jeffersonville Lions clubs are once again joining forces to present the 12th-annual Beat Michigan Tailgate Party, which will be held Friday, Nov. 24, the night before the Big Game.
Festivities will begin at 6 p.m. in the Mahan Building on the Fayette County Fairgrounds with appetizers and lots of Buckeye electricity. A dinner featuring great tailgate food will be provided by Denny Smith of Willow Catering, and the evening will include both silent and live auctions of numerous items just right for holiday shopping. A featured speaker will be announced soon.
The two Lions clubs are also conducting a raffle for the event. The top prize is a 55-inch HD flat screen TV. Other prizes are $500 cash, Kindle Fire HD Tablet, and $200 cash. Ticket holders need not be present to win any prize.
Tickets for the Tailgate Party are $20 per person and raffle tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20. Tickets can be purchased from any Washington or Jeffersonville Lion, or by calling 740-335-1107.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to Fayette County food pantries and various Lions sight-saving programs.
