It’s been a little while coming, but the Tail-Great 2013 Website is up and ready for solicitation! We are trying some new things out this year, so there will be some changes ongoing and we please ask for your patience if something is not working to your satisfaction. Please reach out with any questions or [...]
The greatest fundraising event in the history of mankind is back and better than ever! July 13th, 2013 will be the date for Tail-Great v. 8.0. As in years past, festivities will kick off at 04:00PM and go until 07:00PM. The game is a 07:05PM start and will feature your battling Buccos versus the Metropolitans of New York.
Everything raised will go to local Pittsburgh charities, with our main beneficiaries being Steps to Independence and the Animal Rescue League.
We are going to mix things up a bit this year with the hope that it maximizes everyone’s enjoyment of the event. For the first time ever we are offering different packages for attending. We will be selling tickets to the Tail-Great, and to the Tail-Great WITH a Pirate Ticket. So if you don’t want to go to the game, then by all means, just join us for food and drinks and maybe an early start on the after party (TBD).
We are also going to put together the event at cost to keep the price to our guests at a minimum. We are actively reaching out to donors and sponsors to help us achieve this goal, and we are excited to offer a much larger pool of raffles and prizes this year already.
The face value of tickets to the game have increased dramatically over the last few years (tripled since our first year), and will be sold at face value for $15.
This is a Fireworks Night and ABSOLUTELY WILL sell out (just like the Tail-Great!). We have a block of ~200 tickets to the game, and they will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.
Also, prices for the Tail-Great will be going up each month which means if there are still tickets available on June 1st, we will be raising prices to maximize charitable donations (as well as July 1st). However, we expect tickets to be sold out early!
Come out and have a great time supporting great causes in your community!
BeisbolThe Pittsburgh Pirates will be playing the New York Metropolitans at 07:05PM.
It is also Fireworks nite!
WhereRed Lot 6 has been host to Tail-Great since 2006... why mess with a good thing?? Look for the hundreds of people under the overpass, playing cornhole, enjoying delicious libations provided by Straub Brewery and getting the opportunity to meet countless new friends!
Tail-GreatersWe are expecting over 400 people this year and only have 210 Pirate Tickets. First come, first served. All tickets *will* sell out.
PayPalWe will be accepting online purchases through PayPal only.
SecurityThe Tail-Great is a FAMILY Event. Each year there are members of the Pittsburgh Police Department enjoying the festivities and ensuring it stays a FAMILY Event. Do not be the first person to get asked to leave a Tail-Great.
501(c)(3)Side Project Inc. is a pending 501(c)(3) which means your charitable donation will be tax deductible!
So you are unable to attend this year’s Tail-Great, but you’re still a wonderful person? We know and we look forward to seeing you next year! If you’d like to still contribute to this year’s Tail-Great though, please feel free. It won’t be the same without you, but every donation helps out immensely, so we thank you in advance!
