Lerner and Rowe Gives Back 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament

Last year we made a BIG SPLASH with our 1st Annual Cornhole Tournament where nearly 100 teams came out to compete for a grand prize. This year, we’re hoping to make an even bigger impact with our 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament where we will be raising funds for our non-profit foundation, Lerner & Rowe Gives Back. Each year, our foundation donates hundreds of thousands of dollars back to the community through charitable initiatives, sponsorships, and special events. All funds raised from team registrations, vendors, and event sponsorships will go directly back into the community.

When you participate in this year’s event, you will be helping Lerner & Rowe Gives Back:

  • Donate over 1,500 backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need
  • Donate over 1,500 turkeys and a full Thanksgiving meal to families in need
  • Serve over 30 local non-profits, schools, and police departments through various forms of donations
  • Further our mission of making a difference in the lives of those in need

Our event takes place:
Saturday, July 23, 2022
Bulldog Park
Crown Point, IN 46307
4:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

BAGS FLY AT 4:00 PM!

FAQ’s

“Can I bring my own bags and board?”
All players must use the boards provided at the tournament. A Division may bring and use their own bags, but not required.

“Can I register my team the day of the event?”
There is a strong preference for pre-registration, as this helps us ensure all teams are entered into the bracket in a timely manner.

“Can I be matched with a partner if I do not have one?”
Unfortunately, we will not be matching partners. Please sign up with a partner of your choosing.

We will have fun for the whole family, so be sure to invite friends and family to come show their support. To keep spectators and competitors happy, there will be a live band on stage in the evening, and we will also have a full selection of food vendors, a beer garden for those 21 and older, and the splash pad open for the kiddos (weather permitting).

Grab a partner and come out to have some fun, win some money, and support your local community! Register your team TODAY to ensure you have a spot in Lerner & Rowe Gives Back 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament!
