Victor Cruz GIANT Tailgate Face Off

  • Date / November 17, 2016
  • Location / New York, NY


Over 300 guests enjoyed an array of tailgate themed dishes in this Fall fundraising event held at the Metropolitan West venue. Victor Cruz and co-host celebrity chef, Josh Capon, judged and provided commentary on dishes inspired by Victor’s teammates Shane Vereen, Landon Collins, Damon “Snacks” Harrison and fellow receiver Sterling Shepard. Guests enjoyed food stations sponsored by Dinosaur BBQ and Antico Noe and passed foods inspired by Pepsi products while VIP guests enjoyed specialty drinks from Hennessy. Sponsored by Chase, Green Room guests were able to access the event an hour before doors opened to mingle with all the celebrity talent before the competition kicked off. 

All guests also had a chance to leave with more than just a full stomach. Steiner Sports hosted a silent auction with cool packages like Beats audio set, signed Victor Cruz memorabilia, a 65” Samsung tv and more. Samsung also sponsored the raffle prizes for the night. The Tailgate Face Off was a successful event that helped raise thousands of dollars for the Victor Cruz Foundation. This year Damon “Snack” Harrison was the victor and took home the crown with his Korean BBQ wings, but be sure to join us next year to see which GIANT leaves as the victor!
