Cornhole Tournament benefitted Angels Among Us
On Saturday, April 13th, Blinco's held a cornhole
tournament to benefit Angels Among Us.
This great organization raises funds that can be
quickly delivered where they are needed most in the fight against brain cancer. According to their website, Angels Among Us was founded in 1994 and since then, they have raised over $10 million
dollars to be donated to The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke.
Half of the proceeds of the tournament entry fees and and all of the raffle ticket
procceds went to Angles Among Us! Two of the raffle owners won one of these two great prizes: This hockey stick autographed by our own Chad LaRose and this sweet snowboard from by Mervin Manufacturing.
Thanks for coming out and making this a successful tournament and helping a great cause. Click here to see the pictures posted on our Facebook page.
