A cornhole tournament is planned for Aug. 23 at the BTCC for participants who choose not to golf. The entry fee for the cornhole tournament is $50 per player, which includes dinner and entry into the social.

The cost for the dinner and social, without participating in the golf or cornhole tournaments, is $25.

The social, dinner and silent auction will begin at 5 p.m with the ceremony to follow at 7 p.m.

All proceeds from the golf and cornhole tournaments and silent auction will directly benefit BSU’s nine women’s athletic programs. The event has a fundraising goal of $50,000.
