Food Bank of Delaware to host indoor cornhole tournament

January 10, 2018

The Food Bank of Delaware is helping to beat the winter doldrums by hosting its first-ever indoor cornhole tournament, Throwing for Hunger Winter Classic, on Saturday, January 20 at the organization’s future home at 222 Lake Drive in Newark. Bags will start flying at 11:00 a.m.  

This first-ever tournament is being spearheaded by Food Bank of Delaware Board of Director Scott Lammers and day-of logistics will be run by the Wilmington Cornhole Association.

“I take great pride in helping our local community and being involved with the Food Bank of Delaware,” said Lammers. “This tournament is just one way for me and many others to participate in an event that allows us to walk away knowing that we provided, in a small way, a helping hand to many Delawareans in need.”

The cost is $50 per team, and there are recreation and competitive divisions. The competitive tournament will be limited to the first 64 teams; recreational tournament will be limited to first 20 teams, with a double elimination format.

Registration includes cornhole play and four drink tickets per team. Cash prizes will be awarded, and food will be available for purchase from The Culinary School at the Food Bank of Delaware.

“The weather has been frigid,” said Food Bank of Delaware President and CEO Patricia Beebe. “We know that more than 70 percent of clients served through our network of partners choose between buying groceries and paying their utility bill. For every dollar raised at the cornhole tournament, we can provide two meals to Delawareans in need so they don’t need to make the difficult decision of buying food or paying their heating bill.”
