Cornhole tournament nets $5,000 for neighborhood school

Chris Moffett and Chad West present a big check to Hogg Elementary representatives Benny Guzman and Jairo Casco. Their tournament exceeded the fundraising goal of $3,500.

James P. Hogg Elementary School is $5,000 richer this week after neighbors pitched beanbags to raise money for them this past Friday.

The Dash for the Beads committee, which raises money for neighborhood schools through its annual Mardi Gras 5k, organized a cornhole tournament fundraiser for Hogg at BBBop. Thirty-two two-person teams competed.

The committee had set a goal to raise $3,500.

“So not only did we exceed our fundraising goal, we maxed out on teams and exceeded our sponsorship goal,” says lawyer Chad West, who co-organized the event.
