Sportable Announces 2022 Tailgate Season

RICHMOND, VA – (Thursday, August 11, 2022) – Sportable, Central Virginia’s premier accessible sports club, is proud to announce the 2022 Tailgate Season will begin on Thursday, September 22 with Dominion Energy returning as the title sponsor for the fifth consecutive year. Sportable’s signature fundraising campaign will unite the community with a goal to raise critical funds and awareness for the non-profit’s mission to make sports accessible and inclusive for individuals with physical disabilities.

“Hosting or attending a Sportable Tailgate is one of the best ways to support our mission to create top-quality, inclusive sports programs,” commented Hunter Leemon, Sportable Executive Director. “Our Tailgate has always been an opportunity to celebrate our athletes and their accomplishments, while at the same time raising the awareness and resources that help to make our work possible. We are grateful for Dominion Energy’s continued support, and are looking forward to our best season yet.”

The Sportable Athlete Tailgate presented by Hourigan and hosted by the Associate Board will kick off Tailgate Season with pizza and RVA craft beer on Thursday, September 22. C&F Bank and Sheltering Arms Institute are slated to host Tailgate happy hours, while dozens of Sportable families, donors, and supporters plan to host personalized parties through October 2 with a goal to fundraise $110,000.

Gifts of any amount will provide critical unrestricted support and will directly impact the lives of hundreds of local residents. To join the fundraising efforts and register to host a Tailgate contact Hunter Leemon, Executive Director, at hunter@sportable.org.
