GRAYLING – The biggest tailgate party of the year, Boosterpalooza, is being held on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Armory at Camp Grayling.
This fundraiser benefiting the Grayling Youth Booster Club features a night of dancing, drinks, heavy hors d’oeuvres, live and silent auctions, and the drawing of the Kawasaki Mule raffle winner.
The evening starts at 6 p.m., and admission is $25 per person (includes hors d’oeuvres and two drink tickets). Advance tickets are available at The Medicine Shoppe, AuSable Eye Care, Ole Dam Party Store or DuBois Lumber.
“We started planning this new event last year and it’s going to be a great night,” booster club president Rob Aubry said. “We would love to see parents, coaches, teachers and other members of our community come and support what we do for the youth of Crawford County.”
In addition to the fun-filled evening, some participants will walk away with auction items such as press box seats to a Grayling High School football game, Detroit Pistons tickets, an overnight package at the Great Wolf Lodge, one-week Myrtle Beach condo rental, a $200 Jay’s Sporting Goods gift card and much more.
All money raised at the event goes toward the general fund of the GYBC. The non-profit organization was started in 1971 and has awarded grants to more than 40 different local youth organizations. In its 42 years of service, the club has contributed more than $2 million to the local community and there is virtually no child who grows up in the Grayling area that isn’t impacted in some way by the work of the GYBC. Additionally, the boosters put on the annual Fourth of July Fireworks in town.
