The Saddleback Associated Student Government hosted a tailgate party for the Gaucho Homecoming football game on Saturday, Sept. 29 in front of the Saddleback stadium.
ASG provided activities for the tailgate party for children including a Waffle-Licious food truck and a DJ. ASG also had many charities attend to help donate to the public.
The activities that ASG provided for the children were rubber ducky races, pumpkin decorating, face painting, balloon paint dart game, a can toss and bounce houses.
For each booth that had an activity, ASG provided a jar in which parents could help donate to the local charities.
“People are not required to pay for the activities, but they are welcome to donate to help the charities,” said Sahar Ghassemi the Senator of Kinesiology for ASG.
There were also different charities attending to inform the public of their services and to accept donations.
Among the charities that attended were the Ronald McDonald House, Village of Hope, McKenna Claire Foundation and Maxlove.
The Ronald McDonald House gave out a wish list for the needs of Orange County Ronald McDonald House. The wish list included kitchen goods, cleaning supplies and other miscellaneous items.

Maxlove informed the Tailgate-goers of childhood cancer and the small amount of research funds that are available to research childhood cancer. September was their national awareness month for childhood cancer. Maxlove is selling fedora hats and sending five dollars of the proceeds to the St. Balricks Foundation. And for each beanie that is sold Maxlove will donate an addition beanie to a child fighting for cancer. To find out how to get your head wear visit www.givemaxlove.org.
