Seventh Annual United Way Cornhole Tournament

For the seventh year, Kent State University’s Division of Student Affairs will host the United Way Cornhole Tournament on Thursday, Dec. 10, at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center. Check in begins at 3:15 p.m. and the tournament begins at 4 p.m. The event is open to all faculty, staff, students and affiliates of the university, as well as all supporters of United Way.

The single-elimination tournament will involve a round of the best of three games. Up to 64 teams will be accepted, and the registration fee is $50 per team. The registration fee includes an official T-shirt, and all proceeds benefit the United Way Campaign.

“I am hoping that each area finds some students or employees that love cornhole to form a team and compete,” says Barbara Boltz, project director in the Division of Student Affairs. “Every penny of the team fee goes to the United Way.  The tournament shirts, the food, space and cornhole sets are all donated.”   

More than $5,000 has been raised over the past six events.
