Reservations are now being taken for the sixth annual Big Red Tailgate, a benefit supporting Completely KIDSSM, an Omaha nonprofit dedicated to serving at-risk youth and their families.

The Completely KIDSSM Guild-sponsored event will be held Sept. 14 at the Ramada Plaza Omaha Hotel and Convention Center, 3321 S. 72nd St. A silent auction and cocktails will begin at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. and an oral auction at 8:30 p.m. A raffle prize drawing will take place during the evening.

Last year, the guild raised more than $178,000 for Completely KIDSSM through the Big Red Tailgate event. Completely KIDSSM develops youth and their families through out-of-school time and family strengthening programs in communities where they live. Annually, it serves more than 2,000 youth in seven schools, three homeless shelters and at the Completely KIDSSM headquarters, 2566 St. Mary’s Ave.

Serving as this year’s honorary chairmen are Debra and Bruce Grewcock. Anne Medlock will join Mahoney as general co-chairman, and the 2012 guild president is Brenda Christensen.
