Crowdfunding through our partner Zokos gets the entire group to participate and causes a transformation. No longer is it a question of "Is there going to be a tailgate?" but "How elaborate can the tailgate become?"
“Fear over lack of interest and concern about getting stuck with the bill are two of the
to tailgating,” says Andy Macias, founder and owner of Tailgate Cruiser, which
rents and delivers tailgating equipment to sports fans in Washington, DC and
Northern Virginia - including free tailgate planning services. “The party
stops before it ever begins because people just don’t want to deal with
fronting the money only to have to uncomfortably hit up each partygoer to collect
funds at the event.”
Enter Tailgate Cruiser partner Zokos. Zokos is a crowdfunding platform that allows guests to chip-in for their portion of the bill ahead of time while they are RSVPing. $89 rental tailgate packages, food, beer, and delivery are paid in advance. No fronting money. No IOUs. No hassle.
Collective funding does more than increase the group’s purchasing power; it gets people involved and makes for a more collaborative effort. RSVPers tend not to flake out when they have skin in the game. Crowdfunding through our partner Zokos gets the entire group to participate and causes a transformation. No longer is it a question of “Is there is going to be a tailgate?” but “How elaborate can the tailgate become?”
The Zokos platform allows guests to securely chip-in through PayPal or WePay using their credit card. Once the goal number of guests is reached, the party tips and the money is then transferred to the host. If not, no money changes hands and no charges are incurred.
Having the money ahead of time allows the host to order the rental equipment, food, and beer ahead of time on www.tailgatecruiser.com and schedule the delivery. Tell them when and where to deliver and your tailgate planning and payment are complete.
Tailgate Cruiser is offering Free Delivery to customers that crowdfund their tailgate through Zokos. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (571) 306-2170 for details.
