After careful thought and consideration by our staff and Board of Directors we have decided to move our Tailgate Gala to a Home Gate Gala for the health and safety of our guests. We will still have an online silent auction with amazing items. And you can still participate! Online silent auction kicks off on August 27th and runs through September 10th! You can register now at by clicking tab provided and you will receive a text/email when auction is live!

In addition to our online silent auction we need your help to raise $25,000 in honor of 25 years of our mission of helping save lives. This will help us raise funds we will miss from not having the in-person event. You can make a donation anytime at by going to this link https://kendrickfincher.org/donate/.

For questions and more information please contact Todd at todd@kendrickfincher.org or 479-200-1313.
