2016 CornHole Charity Classic

Goebel Park
On Saturday May 28th 2016 (Memorial Day Weekend), the Independent American Network will hold a cornhole tournament to benefit local homeless veterans at Goebel Park in Covington Kentucky. The event will begin around noon and the award ceremony will begin around 7:00pm.

According to the Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition “Approximately 25,000 people experience homelessness each year” right here in Cincinnati. Approximately 14% are homeless veterans who have served their country. That equates to roughly 3,500 homeless heroes on our streets at any given time. HH Motorsports will be providing rides on their off road go carts, great food, drink, music, and demonstrations.

Come out, support our homeless heroes, have a great time and don’t forget the kids. They will take center stage with their own Junior Tournament.

20th Annual Kings Island Walk to Cure Diabetes

Kings Island
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fun, happy, healthy, and effective way to show your support for all those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and to raise funds for JDRF—the leading global organization focused on T1D research.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. More than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults in the United States receive a diagnosis each year. That’s why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks nationally every year that connect walkers to an extensive community of families, volunteers, and donors who are committed to fighting this serious disease.

The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes has raised $1 billion to date. Your generosity helps us continue to accelerate progress in T1D research and keep people with T1D healthy while we work towards a cure.

Thank you for your support of the JDRF Walk!

The ILYMTYK Project's first annual softball tournament

North End Fields- Hamilton, Ohio
The "I Love You More Than You Know Project" is a new non-profit organization. Our main goal is to raise awareness to addiction, bring the community and surrounding communities together to share our stories about addiction, and help each other out. Our biggest goal is to raise enough money, through our fundraisers, to help send someone who is suffering from addiction to get the help they want and need to get. An ideal candidate would be someone who recognizes they have a problem and wants to get help but may not be able to afford it. We will host other fundraisers but we are hoping this softball tournament will be our biggest one. The tournament is slow pitch softball for anyone 18+ who wants to play. There will be two separate brackets for those who play competively and those who just want to have fun! There will be fun all day at the North End Fields in Hamilton, Ohio like softball, concessions, silent raffles, split the pot, and music.
I am so passionate about this because I lost someone close to me from addiction and if there is anyway I can prevent this from happening to someone else I will do anything in my power to do so.
