UNC Cystic Fibrosis Fall Fundraiser & Cornhole Tournament!

Join us on Sunday, September 23rd from 12pm-4pm, for an afternoon of FUNdraising! We are raising money and collecting non-perishable food items for our CF Patient Assistance Fund and Patient Food Pantry! This fund is used for medical devices, transportation assistance, and most recently grocery assistance. We hope to raise awareness around food insecurity issues among those living with Cystic Fibrosis and support patients who have an increased caloric need but who are unable to afford meals in order to support that need.

Our Fall Fundraiser and Cornhole Tournament is our annual fundraising event to raise money and donated food items for an organization we love and love to work with. There will be plenty of beer, food from Crêpes Véronique and Merry Franksters, and LOTS of raffle prizes from local attractions! Additionally, local artists The Loose Lucies and The Lids will be playing! All proceeds and donated items from the fundraiser and cornhole tournament will go towards our Patient Assistance Fund and Patient Food Pantry to support our Grocery Assistance Program.

TEAM REGISTRATION:
Teams consist of two players. The entry fee is $20 per team with a limit of 30 teams. Teams will have a chance to win the grand prize of a custom UNC Cornhole set! Additionally, there will be prizes for 2nd and 3rd place! Please be sure to register by 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 16th.
