VINA’s annual fundraiser is adding a new opportunity for donors and bidders this year. A mini online auction containing three sets of Michigan tickets kicks off the excitement a month before the live Tailgate on October 27. Bidding for these tickets is online only, open now and closes at 5 pm on September 30.
There are three sets of tickets available to bidders to see the Wolverines play at the Big House this year.
The tickets are for the following games:
- Northwestern at Michigan on October 23, 2021
- Indiana at Michigan on November 6, 2021
- Ohio State at Michigan on November 27, 2021
Each game has four tickets up for auction. Tickets to see Michigan play in Ann Arbor are getting more and more difficult to find this year, as the Wolverines started off their season with three wins.
The mini auction is a part of VINA’s signature Tailgate fundraiser where Michigan and Michigan State fans compete to see which fanbase can raise more money for the nonprofit clinic. Bidders can designate their “team” to be Michigan, Michigan State or Neutral when bidding on the Michigan tickets.
Sponsorships and tickets to the in-person Tailgate are available at vina.cbo.io or by bringing a check or cash to VINA’s office at 400 E. Grand River Ave in Brighton. Tickets are $45 per person and sponsorships range from $100 to $5,000. The Tailgate will be Wednesday, October 27 at 5:30 pm at Crystal Gardens in Howell.
The Tailgate is VINA’s largest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds support the clinic and patients. VINA’s mission is to restore and spread smiles in our community by providing affordable dental care and education to low-income, uninsured Livingston County residents.
