EASTON — Twenty-two teams from around the area competed in Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers second annual cornhole tournament on June 8. Teams competed for cash and prizes and helped raise $4,000 to support CACC’s Tuition Assistance Program.

“Raising money can always be challenging, but beautiful weather, bags flying, and the laughing and cheering made for a really fun day,” said Executive Director Cristy Morrell.

Although the competitors were serious, there were a lot of smiles and joking around.

Winners of the Competitive Division, Nathan Branham and Dennis Barnhart of Team Beat Chad, walked away with $200 each, and winners of the Social Division, Michelle Ewing and Phil Allen of Team Odd Pair, each won gift certificates to Washington Street Pub and the Avalon Theatre.

“We were thrilled to have been able to raise money for our tuition assistance program, which, of course, would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors, Aging At Home Solution, Doc’s Downtown Grille, Bette Kenzie, Adrienne Rudge, Equity Partners, Kitchen Creations, Laser Letters, and law firm Ewing, Dietz, Fountain, & Kaludis,” Morrell said.

Key partners in the success of this event were Maryland Cornhole Organization and Easton Elks Lodge 1622 which organized, promoted and hosted the tournament.

For 49 years, Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers has helped working families by providing a safe, nurturing and enriching environment for children. CACC’s dedicated teachers engage and inspire children in year-round educationally based preschool, kindergarten to fifth grade before- and after-school and summer camp programs.

CACC is able to offer tuition assistance to many qualifying families because of the generosity and financial support of individuals, businesses and foundations in Talbot County.

CACC is a local 501(c)(3) charitable organization. To learn more about CACC or enroll your child in a program, call 410-822-8061 or visit www.cacckids.org.
