Proof Named Official Ice Cream Of January 1, 2020 National Homegating DayProof |

 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, founder of PROOF Hard 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 hard 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, 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 said. “Luke’s idea to kick-off an annual Homegating Day fits us perfectly. Our products are meant for entertaining, sharing, and enjoying.
