Tailgate Arlington: A Rockin' Success!

Thank you to everyone who attended our Tailgate Arlington: Rockin' The Foundation event. The event raised $148,000 for extraordinary learning opportunities for AISD students and was held at the Arlington Museum of Art on Saturday, September 19.  The Young Junior High performed a rousing song medley for the sold-out crowd and musician Brad Thompson was a big hit.  This was a record-breaking amount to raise from our annual event, and everyone had a rockin' good time!
