Why A Tailgate?

The Celebration Starts

Each year while Stefanie “continued to fight and continued to live” she brought friends and families together to pause for a moment to reflect on how special life was. They celebrated another year of life with food, music and backyard fun. That is how Stef’s Celebrate Life Tailgate began. The party today builds on that foundation and encompassed all Stef’s passions: family, breast cancer fund raising, serving others and OSU football. Although Stef lost her battle, she has passed the torch to us all to continue to fight for a cure. What better way to come together as a community to celebrate life than to spend an evening with family and move a step closer to creating a cancer free world —all while cheering on the Buckeyes to another victory! The simple celebration has turned into so much more. Over the past three year’s Stef’s Celebrate Life Tailgate has raised over $250,000 for the cause, but we have a long way to go. Come… celebrate life with us, and together we will honor our commitment to raise funds for equipment that aids women in their fight to beat cancer.
