Charlotte youth will enjoy extracurricular activities thanks to cornhole fundraiser

May 15, 2015

Recently, more than 60 community members braved the heat at Rooftop210 at the EpiCentre in Charlotte, North Carolina, to participate in Youth Villages’ second annual Cornhole Tournament, presented by Bank of the Ozarks.

The event – which featured a raffle, prizes and live music – benefited young people receiving help at Youth Villages. Over the past two years the event has raised a total of $6,055 to allow troubled youth the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities they otherwise would be unable to afford – such as summer camps, after-school programs and sports teams.

A special young man, Nathan, and his mother, Ronya, shared their heartwarming story of funds from the event creating a positive change in their family.

“Nathan was able to participate in basketball and football. I would like to thank Youth Villages for their support,” Ronya said.

BankofOzarksThanks to the generosity of event participants and presenting sponsor Bank of the Ozarks, children at Youth Villages will be able to move closer to finding long-term success in life.

“Bank of the Ozarks places a priority on investing in the Charlotte community and we are so very proud to partner with Youth Villages to make sure disadvantaged children have the opportunity to thrive,” said Cindy Wolfe, President, Carolinas Division Bank of the Ozarks.

Thank you to all who turned out to support Youth Villages mission to help troubled children and their families live successfully!
