On August 21st, 2016, Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV) and its philanthropic program BGV Gives helped run and sponsor The Great Cornholio 2016 to benefit the Wounded Heroes Family Adventures (WHFA). BGV played a vital role in raising funds to support the WHFA in providing injured service members and their families with therapeutic, outdoor retreats through the Wounded Heroes Family Mountain Experience (WHFME) in Breckenridge.
This year’s cornhole tournament brought in 65 attendees to root for 25 two-person teams! Local businesses showed their support by donating over $1,500 in raffle prizes. These local sponsors included: Blue Lotus Yoga Studio, Breckenridge Brewery, Brooklyn’s Tavern, Burke & Riley’s, C.B. & Potts, Craniology, Downstairs at Eric’s, Joy of Sox, Kingdom Massage, Motherloaded Tavern, Mountain Goat, Mountain Wave, Napper Tandy’s/Salt Creek, Refresh Spa, Relish, Soothe Spa, Sunshine Café, The Crown, The Mountain Goat and Twist. Laser Graphics and Coors Light were substantial contributors to the event as well.
The Second Annual Great Cornholio generated a total of $2,172, which was then matched 100% by BGV. As a result, the Wounded Heroes Family Adventures received $4,343 towards recovery and respite for injured veterans through the Wounded Heroes Family Mountain Experience program.
