Collinsville Triad CEO welcomed guests for Oh My Gourd Tailgate Trivia on Saturday evening. While it was chilly temps, the gamble of renting patio heaters for all VIP tickets definitely worked out. We had a great evening of tailgating, trivia - with a few Thanksgiving topics to launch the holidays, outstanding food at D&M Farms Food Tent and many smiles and laughs through the evening. Thank you to every friend and family member that supported this group of young entrepreneurs. Special thanks to our sponsors to make this event possible:
Signature Sponsor - St. Jacob Glass Inc.
Command Center Sponsor - WLS Consulting
VIP Basket/Heater Sponsors - Dr David Hyten, Dental Office, Redmon Insurance Agency, Extreme Baseball & Softball Club, and Universal Communication LLC
Row Sponsors - Brad Keene - Certified Financial Planner, Custom Fundraising Solutions, JEDS Lawncare, Kelly Tracy Apparel & Design, Maryville Fitness and CHS ESL Dept.
Basket Donations - Code 3 Spices Family, Friends & Customers

We cannot forget a huge thank you to Triad High School for allowing us to host this event and move to a new location on the campus within days of the event due to the weather forecast.

Students walked away with perspective on ALL the pieces to pull an event together - that is successful. From the logistics of choosing an idea, finding a venue, securing sponsors, selling tickets, moving 40 haybales, picking up 10 patio heaters, ensuring proper screen/speaker systems for Trivia and music, selecting the right trivia questions/topics, finding pumpkins, creating VIP baskets, providing exposure for all sponsors before the event and during the event, working extra revenue options with raffle tickets, handwarmers and hot chocolate, cleaning up, thanking their parents and coming together as a TEAM in every way.

Thank you to our Board of Directors and Investors for supporting this program through every part of this journey. We will continue to learn, grow and become leaders of tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
