THE THROWDOWN – A CHARITY CORNHOLE TOURNAMENT: Saturday, August 9th, 2014 from 11am – 5pm at City Park in Denver
The Throwdown is our annual charity cornhole tournament for fun people who want to enjoy an afternoon in the park playing some cornhole, a classic lawn game, with friends, while supporting a great local educational non-profit. Whether you’re an expert or you’ve never heard of the game before, it is a great time for all. Relax, no experience is needed to participate!
Why Cornhole? A more appropriate question should be why not? The Throwdown raises money for the Cottonwood Institute to help support our programs to connect diverse students to the outdoors and empower them to take action to improve their schools, their communities, and the environment. It’s a noble cause.
2014 will be our 5th annual Throwdown and we are planning on going big, so for more details, Click Here.
