The annual United Way Cornhole Tournament is open to
all Kent State faculty, staff and affiliates of the university.
This year's tournament, benefiting the United Way, will
take place on Nov. 8.

The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs will hold its fourth annual United Way Cornhole Tournament on Thursday, Nov. 8, at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center. Check-in begins at 3:15 p.m. and play begins at 4 p.m., and is open to all faculty, staff and affiliates of the university, including friends.

The single-elimination tournament will involve a round of the best of three games. As many as 64 teams will be allowed to participate. The cost to participate is $50 per team. The entire registration fee benefits the United Way.

“Cornhole is known for being a friendly competition, so what better way to represent your department or organization than by competing  and raising money for an effective organization like the United Way? It’s an organization that makes a difference right here in Portage County,” says Barbara Boltz, project director for Enrollment Data and Systems Support in the Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs.

The United Way is a non-profit organization that works with nearly 1,300 local United Way offices throughout the country in a partnership with charitable organizations to raise efforts in fundraising and support.
