‘Cornhole Extravaganza’ Benefits UP Sport Court

Meet the muse.

University Park Elementary dad Robb Flint reached out about an event today called Cornhole Extravaganza for Make Benefit Glorious Sport Court UP — and yup, that’s the actual title, inspired by Borat-speak. It’s open to all UP parents and supporters of the school, and starts at 5 p.m. at 3319 Hanover St.

The UP Dads Club fundraiser is a tournament (Flint figures at least 100 people will show), with proceeds to go toward installation of the school’s first real athletics court. Event sponsors have already stepped in line, for the record, and include Anhauser-Busch distributor Ben E. Keith, clothing company J. Hilburn, and Snider Plaza’s Love Tennis.

Their goal? To raise $50,000.

“We like to say that it will be the largest cornhole tournament ever held in University Park,” Flint tells us.

I believe the man.

    $50,000 Goal with 100 attendees expected comes to $500 entry fee if event sponsors are covering all costs and not donating. That is some mighty fine outreach to get 100 people involved at $500 a pop; would love to know his secret.

    Ha — good point! I think $50,000 was and is the total fundraising goal, not the likely outcome of a single event.
