2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament Benefiting Erlager's Child Life Services Set For April 6

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Trident Transport's Second Annual Cornhole Tournament benefiting Child Life Services at Children's Hospital at Erlanger will be held on Saturday, April 6 from noon-4 p.m. at 1428 Chestnut St.  All proceeds will benefit the Child Life Services.

"Our first tournament raised over $10,000 and we hope to double this year," organizers said. "As a locally owned company, we understand the importance of corporate social responsibility. It would have been easy for us to write a check for this year’s donation, but our employees wanted more. Our company was built on creating and cultivating strong relationships with our customers and providing them a service they can't find anywhere else; we want that with our community, too.

"Each month, we plan and offer an opportunity for Trident employees to give back. Whether it’s a toy drive, a patient party or dressing up to pass out candy to the children's rooms, our staff always goes the extra mile. Afterall, something as simple as a toy car can turn a child's entire day around and we love being a part of that.

"Many local businesses have joined together with us to help make this event possible and give as much back to Child Life Services as we can."

The tournament will have two divisions: "Just Tossing" Casual division and "In It to Win It" League division, with cash prizes for each division's winners. There will be 2 Sons + Kitchen food truck, drinks, raffle prizes, live music, chances in the money machine and more.
