Trident Transport Hosts 3rd Cornhole Tournament Benefiting Children’s Hospital At Erlanger

Monday, January 27, 2020

For the third year, Trident Transport, a local logistics company, is hosting a community cornhole tournament to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. The event will be in the Chattanooga Choo Choo Gardens on Saturday, May 9 from noon-5 p.m. and is free to the public.
 
Striving to make it bigger and better than ever, Trident plans to have a kid’s area, VIP area, local musicians, local beer, food and cocktails in addition to the cornhole tournament.

The cornhole tournament will consist of two divisions: casual and pro.

Each team of two will compete in a round-robin style tournament and the top contenders will move on to single elimination championship rounds. Cornhole ATL will be the tournament director for the event and will handle the competition, run the tournament brackets and referee if needed. First and second place winners in each division will win cash prizes and trophies. Entry fee for the casual division is $100 and entry fee for the pro division is $180. This registration fee includes entry for a team of two participants into the tournament, food vouchers, drink tickets and swag bags. Team registration can be purchased at www.cornhole.tridenttransport.com
 
Tournament participants can choose to upgrade their registration to include VIP access. Trident’s VIP Area, sponsored by CBI Workplace, will be completely furnished for VIP patrons, and will include unlimited food and drinks. VIP tickets can be purchased at www.cornhole.tridenttransport.com. The Kid’s Area, sponsored by First Horizon Bank, will be packed full of fun activities for kids and families, including the famous slime table from last year’s event. 
 
Sponsors for this year’s cornhole tournament include Chattanooga Choo Choo, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. United, First Horizon Bank, CBI Workplace, Gate 11 Distillery, Naked River Brewing Company, Parkway Pourhouse and more. Sponsorships are still available for purchase at www.cornholetournament.com
 
Last year’s event raised $15,000 for the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, and this year, Trident is working to double that. Their goal of $30,000 will be accomplished with the help from local businesses and the community. All proceeds from this event go directly to the Children’s Hospital. 
 
"Trident Transport works with the Children’s Hospital on a monthly basis. Trident employees will volunteer time at the hospital for patient parties, host toy drives and give donations for whatever they may need," officials said.
