Alumni House Announces 2016-17 #RaiseHigh Tailgate Schedule

Nov. 14, 2016 The GW Office of Alumni Relations will host several #RaiseHigh Tailgates prior to GW men’s basketball games this season, highlighted by events at Harvard, Temple, Miami and the BB&T Classic at the Verizon Center this fall, Associate Director of Athletic Alumni Programs Scott Allen announced.

The #RaiseHigh Tailgates will bring together GW athletic alumni and fans of the GW men’s basketball program for food, drinks and celebration before rooting for the Colonials. At each tailgate, Department of Athletics and Recreation leaders will attend and speak to the assembled fans.

“We want to make sure the entire Buff and Blue family is ready to cheer on the Colonials, and it’s particularly important when we are on the road,” Allen said. “Our student-athletes can really hear our fans on the road and it inspires them.”

A full list of all events can be found here.

Tailgates are open to all families and fans, and reduced rates are available to young alumni who graduated in the Class of 2006 or later.
