Corn hole competition

in Uncategorized by

The weather cooperated just long enough for The Healing Heroes of the Low Country Fund to hold its inaugural Corn Hole Tournament last Saturday at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park.  About 20 two-man teams participated, according to chairperson Donnie Beer. Each competitor received a T-shirt while the winner got a large trophy and a cash prize, she said. The fund raises money, “for wounded veterans, their families and caregivers, as well as first responders and their families,” Beer said as beanbags were being tossed through the air.
