This past Saturday, October 2nd, 2010, Pilot Dogs, Inc. hosted our 4th Annual Tailgate Party at the Grange Insurance building in downtown Columbus. It was a FANTASTIC afternoon filled with food, a silent auction, trivia, raffles and of course-the cherry on top-watching the Ohio State Buckeyes defeat the Illinois Fighting Illini 24-13.

We owe a special thanks to the following individuals and businesses for their help in making this year's party a great success:
Grange Insurance-who allowed us to use their beautiful facilities for this event.
City Barbeque Catering-who donated a portion of the delicious meal that was served.
OWU Delta Gamma Volunteers-who dished out everyone's meals and kept the food station clean and organized.
Also, a BIG THANKS to everyone who attended & supported Pilot Dogs!
We hope you had a great time & look forward to seeing you at the 5th Annual Tailgate Party!
