Ultimate Tailgate Party! 2023


Americanism Building a Strong Family Unit Child Abuse Prevention

As all great ideas begin, the Ultimate Tailgate Party was created over a cold one with friends on a back porch in Louisiana. UTP is a non-profit annual fundraiser supporting the hosting organization, the Exchange Club, programs of service:


We come together in order to eliminate child abuse in all forms, to foster the health and growth of a strong family unit, to promote Americanism, to strengthen the education of our children and to give ourselves in service to our community.

Ultimate Tailgate Party

August 26, 2023 - Starting at 7pm

Over the past 10+ years the Exchange Club of West St. Tammany has given over $440,000 back to our Community with your help! This year the game is a little different. When the whole Community is impacted those less fortunate get impacted even more, especially the Youth! Exchange Club’s Ultimate Tailgate Party is a fundraiser designed to fund programs that assist these Youth, so this year we need your help more than ever, they need your help!
