Pardee Hospital Foundation 6th Annual Cornhole Tournament is in the books as an “AMAIZING” Success!!

With 100 players, both recreational teams and self proclaimed competitive “ringers”, the cornhole bags were flying and a good time was had by all, including the throng of spectators cheering the players along! At the end of the day, more than $10,000 was raised for the Pardee Sports Medicine Concussion Helmet Program for Henderson County High School Football Players through food and beverage sales, registrations and fabulous sponsors!

The “CREAM OF THE CROP” – Pardee Hospital Foundation Cornhole Tournament Champions: David Escobar & Hunter Davis (4 years in a row for David!)

2nd Place Chrissy Kovacevic & Richard Whitmire
3rd Place Mike Mincey & Vince Honeycutt

AND YOU CAN STILL HELP WITH THIS INITIATIVE!!EACH HELMET COMES WITH A $500 PRICE TAG!

High school football is shown to be the sport with the greatest proportion of concussions, and these helmets help to alert the athletic trainers when a player has sustained a concussion-like hit. The future goal of supplying the high schools with these helmets is to use the tracking device in conjunction with on-field evaluations, taking a pro-active approach to concussion treatment. The danger of concussion damage is prevalent in sports, and Pardee is dedicated to protecting our community athletes, especially in our high schools.
