Cornhole For Camp 2019 date coming soon

36 teams compete in Cornhole For Camp 2018

A record 36 teams and over 100 spectators raised $5,000 for our “Send A Camper To Camp” fund during the second annual Cornhole For Camp tournament Feb. 24, 2018, at Triple C Brewing Company in Charlotte.

Congratulations to tourney champs Matthew Ginther and Clinton Ingram! They won the $500 grand prize. It was a great day of fun for everyone and we think we recruited a few new campers and volunteers.

One highlight of the day was the impromptu auction for handcrafted cornhole boards made by Dave Rudel of Cut. Chop. Serve. Dave passed by Triple C while walking his dog and saw our banners and the cool cornhole boards provided by the Roby Family of Companies. Dave returned and donated the cornhole boards he made exclusively from locally sourced and sustainably harvested hardwoods. He told us to sell them if it would help our mission.

What started out as a silent auction ended up in a good-natured bidding war. Kevin Watson and Dylan Ellerbee, who were among the tourney finalists, came through with the winning bid of $360, which happens to be the fee a camper pays to attend a week of camp.

Thanks to Dave, Kevin, and Dylan for their incredible generosity! We hope you’ll see Dave, Kevin, and Dylan at camp someday to thank them in person.

Cornhole For Camp is an annual fundraiser hosted by the Blue Skies Boosters.
