Although we are unable to gather in person this summer, we would like to ask you to join us as we take two of our signature events – Kids in the City and Grand Slam – and turn them into one large ((virtual)) celebration – Tailgate in a Box!


This month-long fundraising event is being supported by FOX Sports North and the Minnesota Twins to help us further our mission: Enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.


All proceeds raised will support BGCTC’s virtual youth education programming and Family Meal Kit food distribution.

Tailgate in a Box brings the fun to you!

  • Tailgate box full of food and fun! 
    • Grill Bundles from Cub Foods
    • Gray Duck vodka
    • Fulton beer
    • and more!
  • Q&A and virtual games with Minnesota Twins Alumni 
  • Silent & Live Auction 
  • Highlight segments with BGCTC staff and youth …and more!
  • Participation Fee: $100 (One Tailgate Box for four people with access to all event activities)
  • Dates: August 4, 11, 18, & 25
