Make Plans to Attend the Purple Tie Tiger Tailgate!

Becca Wood | July 13, 2022 | 922 views

The Purple Tie Volunteer Team is planning a Purple Tie Tiger Tailgate on Saturday, Aug. 13, at 6:30 p.m. in the Huffman Athletic Center.

"Please come in your Darlington tailgate attire and be ready for a great night," said Head of School Brent Bell. "The Purple Tie Tiger Tailgate will have all of your favorites, including the KAMP band, amazing food, silent online auction, live auction, reverse raffle, and Raise the Paddle to support Pre-K to 8 Tiger PRIDE for special projects." 

All proceeds will benefit Darlington’s parent organizations: Pre-K to 8 and Upper School Tiger PRIDE, the Fine Arts Booster Club, and the Athletic Booster Club.

How to get involved:

Attend the Purple Tie Affair: Admission to The Purple Tie Affair is $85 per person, which includes dinner and an open bar. Patron tables can be purchased for $2,000 (front row tables) or $1,250, which includes reserved seating for eight, 16 purple raffle box tickets, and special recognition. Just like years past, there is also an opportunity to "Treat a Teacher" for the event. Attendance will be capped at 450. Click here to purchase tickets. Guests must be 21 or older to attend.

Purchase a reverse raffle ticket: Tickets are on sale now! Click here to purchase. Each raffle ticket is $100. A ticket will buy you a 1 in 300 chance to win $10,000! Drawing will be held on Saturday, Aug. 13, and you do not have to be present to win. 

Donate an auction item or experience: Many members of our community generously donate auction items from their businesses or businesses they frequent. Some examples include sports and event tickets, vacation homes, gift cards, golf outings, and much more. If you have an auction item (or an idea for an item) that you would like to donate, please let us know. We have also created an Amazon Wish List to make donating items easier. Items can be purchased off our wish list and sent directly to our school! All items are appreciated!
