ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) - A local high school was out helped people with special needs on Sunday afternoon. The Onalaska Football team hosted its third annual Coulee Region All Stars Tailgate Party for community members with disabilities or special needs.

The event was held at the OmniCenter in Onalaska where the student-athletes played games, served food and gave away prizes to those in attendance.

Organizers said the success of the event is more important than the success on the field.

"The Super Bowl being next week this is a great time. We have the Sunday before the Super Bowl just to rally around sports and football and obviously we want to promote the success they have on the football field, but it's more about the success that they have off the football field," said Onalaska freshman football coach Josh Lichty.
