2011 Bags Tournament Success Story
Our first bags tournament was a ton of fun and a great success!! We didn’t expect such unbelievable generosity, but thanks to all who attended, we raised an unbelievable $1,200 that was donated to The Almost Home Foundation. This is a non-profit, all volunteer, no-kill animal rescue organization that helps dogs and cats through adoption. The funds donated help to provide supplies to help feed, house, train and help our less fortunate 4 legged friends.
There were 16 teams that participated in our double elimination tournament. We set up 6 sets of tournament boards that were hand made and donated to us. We also had several fans come to watch the fun. There were cash prizes for the winning teams, a couple of split the pots, and a very entertaining live auction for Blackhawks tickets.
Thanks again to everyone who participated and donated. The Almost Home Foundation was very pleasantly surprised when we presented them with the $1,200 check. We look forward to doing this again!!
