Cornhole tournament hosted to benefit First Responder families
An added feature of this year's Jack-O-Lantern Jubilee was a cornhole tournament hosted by Support 1, the group dedicated to helping First Responder families following a critical incident.
Support 1 raised just over $1,000 at the Saturday tournament. This money is being focused on the upcoming training program recently begun by Support 1, promoting in the Emergency Service community.
"We at Support 1 want to bring the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation Peer Support Training Program to the CSRA to get as many as 50 local Emergency Service workers certified in this unique program for free," said Chris Chavous, cofounder of the local effort.
Support 1 will be funding the entire program for local emergency service workers, so that their respective agencies won't have to search for the funding to allow them to attend this training.
And the effort continues. Support 1 has four sets of cornhole boards, bags and score towers that they are offering as an additional fundraiser.
"Starting now, we will be accepting bids for the next week with a minimum bid of $200," said Chavous. "They were only used in the tournament and are in good condition."The items being auctioned off include:
- Support 1 cornhole set on dark-stained boards with red and blue bags and score tower
- EMS set on light-stained boards with orange and blue bags and score tower
- Firefighting set on dark-stained boards with red and grey bags and score Tower
- Law Enforcement set on light-stained boards with blue and black bags and score tower
