It may have rained, but Pardee Hospital Foundation had a great time at Hendersonville Country Club for our 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament held on April 18th! The Women & Children’s Center at Pardee Hospital  is $7,500 closer to renovation thanks to the hard work of Karen Yagerhofer, her incredible volunteer committee, 6 teams of competitive Cornholers, 35 recreational teams, and plenty of spectators.

The winners…

of this year’s competitive division were Danny Williams and Terry Caudle, but the real crowd-pleasers were our recreational winners, Colton Hall and Dustin Williams. There wasn’t a spectator or player who wasn’t secretly rooting for the 12-year-old team. (Just ask our runners-up, Steve Orr and John Nall!) Both first place teams won tours donated by Green River Adventures. Check out their website to see the kinds of fun our winners will be having.

We couldn’t let the fun end with just two teams of winners, though. Our costume contest saw some adorable, innovative, and sometimes disturbing entries.

First place went to Chris Wright (pictured far right) and Brett Shaffer, and runners-up Will Hendricks and Garrett Graham (middle) got brownie points for handing out gold doubloons to the kids.

If anything captured our attention more than the tournament, it was the raffle drawing. Guests could buy tickets at $5 apiece for a chance to win two Cornhole boards painted by Mrs. Beasley’s art class at Hendersonville Middle School. (If the name is sounding familiar, you may be thinking of our bear on Main Street!) Jessica Chipriano was the lucky winner.

We’d like to say a giant THANK YOU to our sponsors.
