Gearing up for the Purdue University United Way Campaign, United Way committee members Barbara Cochran, Julie Lewellen, Jessica Mabbitt, Andrea Waibel, and Brittany Vale, organized a cornhole tournament as part of the Faculty Staff Appreciation Event Thursday, August 16.  Two sets of cornhole game boards were set-up in Lynn Hall G119/G155, where teams competed in a single-elimination tournament for only $5.00 per team with all proceeds benefitting the United Way of Greater Lafayette.

Account clerks Lisa Wright and Zach Wise formed the team “Strictly Business” and will compete in the championship round of the cornhole tournament September 12.

As the tourney progressed, the intensity of the competition increased.  Ultimately, three teams vanquished the other competitors, and earned the right to vie for the Cornhole Tournament Championship.  The final championship match will take place at the United Way Campaign Kick-off event on September 12 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., in front of the Continuum sculpture adjacent to Harrison Street.

The teams competing in the round-robin style grand championship will be:

The Corn Stars: Andrea Brown and Osmar Lopez;

Air Force I: Dr. Sandy San Miguel and Will Smith; and,

Strictly Business: Lisa Wright and Zach Wise.
