Windsor Essex Care for Kids Foundation Black Tie Tailgate 2019

The Windsor Essex Care for Kids Foundation and the Windsor Spitfires Foundation teamed up once again to bring Nashville to Windsor with the Black Tie Tailgate 2019.

On Friday August 16, 2019 the two locally focused charities hosted the Annual Black Tie Tailgate fundraiser, with Nashville country music star Jake Maurer as the headliner at Beach Grove Golf & Country Club, 14134 Riverside Drive East.

The Black Tie Tailgate is supported by Windsor’s community and business leaders, as they gathered to support both W.E. Care for Kids and the Windsor Spitfires Foundations.

The 2018 event raised over $170,000 for local children’s health initiatives and the planning committee hopes to see a similar result with this year’s event.

This year’s Black Tie Tailgate was sponsored by Cypher Systems Group, The Stephanie & Barry Zekelman Foundation, Universal Health Products, Omega Toll Corp., The Spidalieri Family, Amico Affiliates, as well as many other great community partners.

The Windsor Spitfires Foundation goes by the motto “Enhancing Lives, Improving Our Community,” the Windsor Spitfires Foundation has raised and donated $498,760 back to local charitable groups and community service agencies around Windsor & Essex County since its inception in 2006. The foundation works closely with a wide range of groups and partners to identify need within our communities, fundraising through charitable events on a year-round basis

The Windsor Essex Care for Kids Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the health and wellness of children in Windsor and Essex County through fundraising initiatives.  Since 1997, W.E. Care for Kids has raised more than $8.2 million in support of equipment for paediatric programs and services at Leamington District Memorial Hospital, Windsor Regional Hospitals, John McGivney Children’s Centre, the Windsor Essex Therapeutic Riding Association and Ronald McDonald House Windsor.
