Are you ready for some football? These NIH’ers sure are. On Aug. 22, they wore their favorite college colors and chatted about their teams’ prospects at the College Football Season Kick-Off Tailgate, held at the NIH Community Market behind Bldg. 10.

OD’s Rosalina Bray said the tailgate began 4 years ago as a prelude to the college football season. At first, it celebrated only Southeastern Conference teams. Since then, the event has expanded to encompass all college football teams.

Participants ordered lunch from food trucks, Linda’s Luncheonette and Captain Cookie & the Milk Man. Proceeds from the event benefited Special Love Inc., a nonprofit organization that provides support and programs for families with children being treated for cancer.
