Cornhole tournament raises money for Habitat for Humanity

Participants receive free lunch and entertainment and chance to win a Xavier cornhole set | April 6, 2005

Xavier University’s Habitat for Humanity hosted a cornhole tournament on Sunday, April 17, on the campus green space near the residential mall. The entry fees included a free lunch and entertainment and the winner received a Xavier cornhole set.

Proceeds benefited Xavier University’s Habitat for Humanity chapter, which, in partnership with Millcreek Valley Habitat for Humanity and Ursuline Academy, is building a home in West College Hill. The group broke ground on the project in February and plans to have the home completed by May.

Members of Xavier’s Habitat for Humanity have helped build many homes in recent years, but this is the first house fully funded by Xavier’s Habitat for Humanity since the 1998-1999 school year. The group held a rake-a-thon last fall to raise money for the project. Millcreek Valley Habitat for Humanity is also making a donation to the Xavier group for the home.

The house is for a mother and her 5-year-old son. The son is confined to a wheelchair so the house was designed with that in mind.

The Korn Hole Federation donated boards, bags and more for the tournament.

Xavier Habitat for Humanity is still seeking donations. To make a donation please contact Katrina Mahlerwein at 513 924-8824 or mahlerweinkr@xavier.edu.
