The Tailgate

It's back! The 2021 VINA Tailgate will be at Crystal Gardens on Wednesday, October 27 at 5:30 pm.

There will be tons of silent auction items, delicious tailgate eats and treats and fun games and entertainment to enjoy while supporting VINA and those we serve. 

Which team will raise the most for VINA and our patients? The Spartans or the Wolverines?
