 Columbia, SC– Leave it to two graduates of the University of South Carolina to collaborate on something as novel as National Homegating Day. 

Luke Lorick, founder of National Tailgating Challenge, and Jenn Randall-Collins, founder of PROOF Alcohol Ice Cream, are teaming up to make the first-ever National Homegating Day as flavorful, creamy, and spirited as possible. 

Scheduled for January 1, 2020, and recognized by the National Day Archives, Homegating Day is designed to bring the fun of tailgating to the inside of your home. 

“Homegating isn’t just about having people over to watch a game,” Lorick says. “It’s about bringing the elements of a great tailgate—grilling, games, music, great food and more—inside your home and sharing it with friends and family.” 

Although Lorick resides in Texas, he was introduced to PROOF by a friend in Columbia. After tasting the alcohol ice cream and falling in love with the Bourbon Caramel flavor, he decided PROOF had to be on the Top 10 product list for National Tailgating Day. 

Randall-Collins, a former basketball player at USC, can’t think of a better collaboration or more exciting way to kick off 2020. 

“Not only are we huge Gamecock fans at PROOF but we’re big sports fans in general,” Randall-Collins said. “Luke’s idea to kick-off an annual Homegating Day fits us perfectly. Our products are meant for entertaining, sharing, and enjoying. 

For a full list of the Top 10 products of National Homegating Day, visit their site.

PROOF will be giving away holiday gift packs during National Homegating Day, and you can purchase online or find our retail partner locations.

PROOF is currently partnering with Lowes Foods, headquartered in Winston-Salem, NC, and will be available for purchase in all locations throughout the Carolinas by mid-January 2020.

Made daily in Columbia, PROOF’s mixology team curates a rotating collection of 12 flavors. Each pint contains 7% ABV (Alcohol by Volume) or 14 PROOF. PROOF is available in retail outlets across the Carolinas and online via www.proofalcoholicecream.com.
