Trident Transport Hosts Cornhole Tournament Benefiting Children’s Hospital At Erlanger

Thursday, January 31, 2019
Local logistics company, Trident Transport, is hosting their second annual cornhole tournament benefiting Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.
 
"During the year, Trident Transport has provided countless enrichment opportunities to the patients at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger," officials said. "The team has sponsored monthly themed patient parties including reverse trick-or-treating with patients and ornament and snow globe crafts, provided personalized 'Thanks a Latte' thank you notes to Child Life, hosted employee Crayola Crayon and Hot Wheels drive to ensure the Children’s waiting rooms were equipped with these distraction tools prior to the busy winter season and donated flat-screen televisions for the inpatient playrooms."
 
“We are incredibly thankful for all the Trident Transport team does for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger and our Child Life program,” said Ashley Zani, Child Life specialist at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.
“As a department that relies on donations from the community we cannot thank this team enough for all that have given and continue to give our patients and staff.”
 
“Before we even started Trident Transport, we knew we had to find somewhere within our community that we, as a company, could rally behind,” said Heath Haley, president of Trident Transport. “Child Life Services works tirelessly to make sure each child's experience is as positive as possible, and we wanted to help with that. It would have been easy for us to cut a check and be done. But, that's not what we wanted for our employees. We wanted our employees directly involved with this initiative. Our employees are so thrilled when they get the chance to volunteer their time or resources because they see the direct impact we can make. If something as simple as a toy car can turn a child's whole day around, we want to be a part of it.”
 
The Trident Transport second annual cornhole tournament will be hosted on April 6 at the company’s location on Chestnut Street. The event will have pro and casual divisions, food trucks, drinks and live music. Pro teams are $150 for a two person team and casual teams are $80 for two.
