You're going to pregame for the Wisconsin game anyway – you might as well do it with Eleven Warriors for a great cause.
The Eleven Dubgate returns to bring together a perfect College Football Saturday in Columbus with the vibrant 11W community. If you're unfamiliar with its history, you can learn more about it here.
This year's edition – our ninth – takes place Saturday 10/26 in the hours leading up to Ohio State's noon kickoff with Wisconsin. And it's going to be right behind the Varsity Club on Tuttle Park Place and Norwich Ave. You can't miss it.
100% of proceeds from the Eleven Dubgate will go to DownSyndrome Achieves, a research advocacy group that works to maximize the health and potential of every individual with Down syndrome by championing the development of critical research capabilities needed to better understand Down Syndrome and to accelerate breakthrough discoveries.
This event has raised thousands and helps fund the nation’s first centralized and dedicated biobank for Down Syndrome research.

Is this donation tax deductible?
Yes, DSA is a 501(c)(3) charity.
What if it gets too crowded? What if it rains?
We will work with our event security to make sure the Eleven Dubgate is safe and enjoyable. We will also work with our sponsors to do our very best to keep the food and beverages flowing for the duration of the tailgate.
If you prefer the shade, we literally have you covered. If you like the sun on your face, that's great too. We will have both options.
What's the drink situation? Food?
Our generous sponsors Land Grant Brewing, Yuengling, Jack Daniels country cocktails and its brand new Tennessee Apple, Fireball, Pepsi, Dirty Frank's Hot Dogs and Buffalo Wild Wings will be on site, serving their quality products. Hollywood Imprints will have shirts for you to buy with the proceeds going to DSA.
Oxford Realty is also a Dubgate sponsor again; we'll be borrowing their property for the morning/afternoon. This list may evolve, so stay tuned.
