Fox Hills to host cornhole fund-raiser for Detroit Bookfest

 Fox Hills to host cornhole fund-raiser for Detroit Bookfest

The June 9 cornhole tournament will raise funds for Detroit Bookfest.

If you enjoy cornhole and have a passion for raising funds for worthwhile non-profit organizations, Plymouth’s Fox Hills Golf & Banquet Center has an event ideal for you.

The inaugural Detroit Bookfest Cornhole Tournament Fundraiser — which was launched in part by Detroit Bookfest founder Ryan Place’s love for the rapidly-growing game that requires tossing beanbags into targets 27 feet away — is set for June 9 at noon at Fox Hills, which is located at 8768 North Territorial Road.

Organizers for the event are expecting between 20 and 50 two-person teams and spectators.

The event will be held rain or shine. Rain would push the event into the Fox Hills’ Summerhouse Pavilion, a 10,000-square-foot pavilion with a bar and restrooms inside. The Summerhouse walls are made of retractable windscreens.

Cash prizes will be presented to 1st-, 2nd- and 3rd-place teams — the amount of which will be determined by the number of participants.

Teams must register online by clicking here. Stripe is used to process your funds. All proceeds raised by the event go directly to Detroit Bookfest.

Plenty of fun

The entry fee is $50 for each two-person team. There is no admission fee for spectators.

The event will be held inside or outside the Fox Hills Summerhouse depending on the weather

There will be plenty of food, beer (for those 21 and older), 50/50 raffles and more, organizers shared.

The event is a fundraiser for Detroit Bookfest, which is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to promoting the joy of reading and the rich culture surrounding it, according to its website.

The cornhole tournament will be staffed by all non-paid volunteers.

The Detroit Festival of Books (aka Detroit Bookfest) is the largest book festival in Michigan. The freeevent is organized by a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised entirely of unpaid volunteers who donate their time to making the event happen. It occurs annually on the third Sunday in July at Detroit’s historic Eastern Market.

Once you are at the event, cash is preferred for the 50/50 raffle, bars, food truck, etc. Credit cards and debit cards will also be accepted for bars and the food truck.

The games will be tracked using the Scoreholio phone app to manage the stats. You can create a profile and follow the games by scanning the QR code below.

The tournament will use a double-elimination format.
