The Junior League of Albany’s First Ever Cornhole Tournament

Albany, New York– The Junior League of Albany’s (“JLA”) first ever cornhole tournament was a great success!

The JLA held the Tournament on Sunday, November 17th at 3:00pm at the Albany Elks Lodge. With 20 teams participating and more than 75 spectators in attendance, the Tournament provided an exciting afternoon of stiff competition. Items such as spa gift certificates, UAlbany basketball tickets and restaurant gift certificates were popular raffle items, with a Stock the Bar raffle of top shelf liquors serving as the raffle grand prize. Pura Vida Kettle Corn provided snacks for munching as attendees cheered on the competing teams and Spinners Pizza donated pizza to keep all the team well fed and energized. The first place team took home $200 in price money and the second place team took home $50.

Altogether, JLA raised a total of over $1,000 with all proceeds benefiting the League’s charitable activities. “We are pleased to have such success and enthusiasm in our first year,” said Carol Crummey McCardle, President. “All of the money raised will be used to support the Junior League of Albany’s mission, including our community projects. We look forward to continuing our good work for the community.”
