First-Ever Cornhole Classic to Raise Money for Charities

by on August 19, 2014 1:45 PM

The Builders Association of Central PA will host the inaugural Centre County Cornhole Classic on Saturday, Sept. 13 at 3406 W. College Ave. in State College.

When registering a team of two for this tournament, contestants will decide which of three local charities should receive proceeds — Centre County PAWS, Centre Volunteers in Medicine or The State Theatre.

Also known as "Corn Toss" and "Bean Bag Toss," among other regional names, Cornhole is similar to horseshoes, except wooden boxes (cornhole platforms) and bean bags are used. The sport has a very loyal and passionate following — you will find thousands of football fans playing this game on any given Saturday.

Other activities include a dunk tank, face painting, a caricaturist and more.

"The BACP is thrilled to be presenting the inaugural Centre County Cornhole Classic," says Abbie Jensen, executive officer of the Builders Association. "Our organization has a long history of charitable giving and what better way to raise funds than through a family-friendly game that anyone can play?"

The tournament is open to all ages and skill levels, including a kids' tournament (ages 12 and under) in addition to the adult tournament.

Spectators are encouraged to attend and can enjoy carnival activities, music, and of course, watching cornhole. A $10 per adult admission fee will be collected, while non-playing children 12 and under are free. Beverages are included in the admission fee.

Pre-registration is required. Registration of an adult team of two costs $80 while a kids' team will pay a fee of $20. Each team will receive a meal courtesy of Hog Father's as well as soda and beer for those over 21. Participation is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
