About The Tailgate

VINA Community Dental Center annually hosts The Tailgate for the Michigan State vs Michigan football game. In its 11th year, The Tailgate is a competition to see which fans can raise the most money to help the needy in our community get quality and affordable dental care through VINA. 

 

Although MSU has dominated on the gridiron in those 10 years by a 7-3 margin, their alumni have not been as successful in The Tailgate competition. As a result of The Tailgate 2018, the teams are tied with five wins each, making this year’s competition the tie breaker. VINA is using #VINAbreakthetie for all social media posts and encourages attendees to use the hashtag as well!


Be A Sponsor

Sponsors are the lifeblood of any fundraising event. Not only do sponsorships raise the visibility of the event (as well as your visibility); but they also allow you to make the most impact for the cause.

VINA provides dental services for people in need for a nominal fee of $25 per appointment. We are only able to do that through the generosity of our donors, local foundations and our Event Sponsors.

Please consider a generous sponsorship to help your neighbors get the dental services they need to maintain good oral health. To become a sponsor you can print and fill out this form, or purchase a sponsorship online
