Pitchin' for Wishes
Join Andrew Roby and Harris Teeter as we celebrate 10 years of giving back at this year's Pitchin’ for Wishes Cornhole Tournament for Make-A-Wish® Central & Western North Carolina. Bags will fly Saturday, September 16 at Freedom Park.
Since 2008, the Roby Family of Companies has been building a better community through the success of this tournament, a two time Guinness World Record setting event. Over the last 9 years, thanks to generous sponsors, donors and players, the event has raised over $1,200,000 for Make-A-Wish® Central & Western North Carolina and other local charities. And we have no plans to slow down! We’re on a mission to raise another $200,000 in 2017 alone.
All money raised will go directly to Make-A-Wish® Central & Western North Carolina to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in our local community. If we hit our $200,000 fundraising goal, they will be able to grant the wishes of 34 deserving kids right here in our local community.
The tournament features an NCAA bracket style cornhole competition, as well as food, drinks, music, appearances by local mascots, kids’ activities and more. In 2016, over 140 teams competed in the tournament as hundreds of spectators cheered them on.
Don’t play cornhole? That’s OK! Show your support by just showing up. Pitchin’ for Wishes is a family friendly event that is FREE to the general public. Everyone is welcome!
