Friday, September 6, 2013

The Chattanooga Kidney Foundation is hosting its annual Dare to Dance event next Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Chattanooga Trade and Convention Center.  

One of the celebrity dancers, Bryan Hoss, is hosting a Cornhole Tournament to help raise money for Dare to Dance. The Cornhole Tournament will have 64 teams. Each team will have two persons.   The Cornhole Tournament will be played at the GetBuilt Chattanooga Crossfit gym on the corner of Main and Broad Street this Friday, Sept. 6, right after work, beginning at 6 p.m. Registration is at 5 p.m.

“We have homemade barbecue, some wonderful gelato from Milk & Honey, and over 120 of some of Chattanooga’s finest athletes all coming out for the first annual Cornhole Tournament,” said Mr. Hoss.  “The Chattanooga Kidney Foundation helps hundreds of people here locally, if not thousands. They are a great organization and all proceeds go directly to them and stay here in Chattanooga."  

The Cornhole Tournament is sponsored by GetBuilt Chattanooga CrossFit, Milk & Honey, Carter Distributing, Nichols Fleet Equipment, and Chatt Town Cornholes.  

“We’re expecting a great crowd. Come on out and watch!” said Mr. Hoss.
