More than 100 guests gathered on September 25 at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham to participate in Youth Villages’ Cornhole Tournament, presented by American Tobacco. The community response was tremendous, as the second-year event raised $13,085.

One-hundred percent of proceeds from the cornhole tournament will allow troubled youth in the Triangle, who are receiving services from Youth Villages, the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities they otherwise would be unable to afford, such as summer camps, after-school programs and sports.

Thank you to our sponsors:
