Exchange Club of Indian River Foundation’s Third Annual Toss Out Child Abuse Charity Cornhole Tournament will be held Saturday, March 9, at Walking Tree Brewery, 3209 Dodger Road, Vero Beach. An hour of practice and onsite registration begins at 11:00 am. Don’t know how to play cornhole? You can learn how during the practice hour.
The double elimination tournament begins at noon. Each team of two will play a minimum of three games. The cost is $40 for a team of two players in advance and $50 at the door. Register in advance online at http://www.exchangeclubofindianriver.org/cornhole to guarantee participation and SAVE $10. A total payout of $1,000 prize money will be awarded.
Entrants will participate in one of two ability levels that will be determined by the results of qualifying rounds. The payouts for top two winners of the A Level are $400 and $300 and for the top two winners of the B Level are $200 and $100.
The event features tantalizing auction items and a 50/50 raffle. 100% of the sales of a ten-gallon firkin keg of handcrafted limited-edition beer named TOCA will be created especially for the tournament and donated by Walking Tree Brewery to the foundation. All proceeds from the event, including a percentage of all other beer sold during the tournament donated by Walking Tree, benefit local projects for the prevention of child abuse.
Jon Pertile of St. Pete Cornhole from St. Petersburg will again manage the double-elimination tournament, handle onsite registration, and serve as master of ceremonies. Custom cornhole sets will be available for purchase.
Sponsorships are available for just $100, $250, and $500. All $500 sponsors will receive a custom-made cornhole set that features their corporate logo or any other image or design they choose. Donations of any amount are also welcome. All information about sponsorship can be found at the How to Sponsor page on this website, the Facebook page, from event chair John Binkley at 772-532-3975, or from any club member.
