Parents from both the KinderFrogs School and Starpoint School paired up to have a fundraiser tailgate to raise money for the school's programs.
The proceeds of the tailgate before the TCU vs. Kansas State game go towards school activities, supplies and scholarships, Mark Sullivan, KinderFrog parent, said.
“I feel as though many people pass the school daily, but they don’t know what KinderFrogs are all about.” Mark Sullivan said. “The fundraiser is a way to show them.”
The fundraiser offered donations in the form of t-shirt and sweatshirt purchases, including baseball shirts, v-necks, crew cuts, sweatshirts, cozies and baseball hats, with the starting price at $10.
The KTPA came up with the t-shirt and sweatshirt designs and had them custom made by Custom Ink Designs.
The money will also be used to help gather supplies for the school’s February auction, KinderFrogs Teacher Parent Association member Shannon Baird said.
By 3 p.m. on game day the fundraiser saw many KinderFrog parents, friends and students and already raised $100 after one hour of sales, Adrienne Sullivan, KinderFrog parent, said.
She said the KTPA decided to host the tailgate in order to raise awareness while bringing families together on game day.
Baird said she enjoys KinderFrogs because of the loving and family focused environment it offers her children.

Ranking the Big XII cities
Two years of football in the Big XII have come and gone, and while the Frogs haven’t had the same success as in recent memory, one thing is for sure: we’ve learned that each of the ten Big XII schools is located in a city with a distinct culture and atmosphere.
From West Virginia to west Texas, Austin to Ames, each city has its high and low points, and after tallying the votes, here is what TCU students thought were the best and worst:
TCU dominates in paint, romps Abilene Christian
Fueled by a dominant performance down low, the TCU women’s basketball team (7-3) remained undefeated at home Wednesday night with a 82-55 victory over Abilene Christian (7-4).
Senior center Latricia Lovings and freshman center Klara Bradshaw fueled a performance down low that resulted in the Frogs outscoring ACU 38-12 in the paint. Bradshaw made three lay-ups in a row early to help the Frogs to maintain a one point lead despite three three-pointers in the opening stretch by ACU guard Whitney West.
Then, TCU went on a 15-3 run and never looked back.
Frogs top UTPA despite sloppy play
Despite sloppy play and bad shooting plaguing them for most of the afternoon, the TCU men’s basketball team found a way to win, beating Texas-Pan American 57-48.
“A win is a win,” TCU head coach Trent Johnson said. “Obviously, they were better than we were for 35 minutes.”
Junior guard Kyan Anderson led the Frogs with 16 points and four assists in the win.
“He played very well,” Johnson said.
