REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command employees sponsored a Combined Federal Campaign fundraising tailgate and car show Nov. 6.

During the command's third "tailgate party," more than 150 people were fed, and more than $1,700 was raised for CFC, an increase over last year's fundraiser.

"Many thanks to all who came out and attended our third annual tailgate and car show supporting CFC," said Lt. Col. Corey Robinson, SMDC deputy chief of staff G-1. "Special thanks goes to Ms. KC Bertling for coordinating an outstanding event."

The festivities included tent displays, a car show, food, competition and awards.

The Commander's Cup for Best Tailgate Display was awarded to the Future Warfare Center employees, and the Command Sergeant Major's Cup for Best Cheering was snagged for the second year by SMDC's G-2 office staff.

The winners of the car show were:
Commanding general's choice: 1967 GMC Truck, Jere Singleton
Command sergeant major's choice: 1993, Ford F-150, Ken Curry
Deputy to commanding general's choice: 1946, Mercury Coupe, David Hasley
Chief of staff's choice: 1973 Porsche 914, Bob Hill
Veteran's choice: 2002 Corvette Z51, Bill Binkley
People's choice: tie between 1973 Porsche 914, Bob Hill, and 2002 Corvette Z51, Bill Binkley
Highest mileage: 1967 GMC Truck with 115,000 miles, Jere Singleton

The volunteer grill masters were: Reed Carpenter, Phil Patterson, Col. John "Jack" Shedd, Col. Kevin Michaels, Col. Jeffrey Ogden, Col. Dewey Granger, and Col. Lorenzo Mack.

"What great teamwork from all who helped pull off this event and from those who participated in the tailgate and car show contests," Robinson said.
