Price Chopper provided concessions. GEHS alum Bryan Rushing (FlyBryGuy) provided music. CJ Designs built cornhole boards. Volunteers included current staff, BOE administrators, retired staff, and alumni. We also had great support from the GEHS administration, district administration, and district maintenance/grounds staff. Tournament managers were Stacy Swopes (GiveBack2Schools) and PRMS principal John McIntire. Kudos to Candace Moorehouse (Foundation secretary), who played a critical role in many aspects of the tournament.
We had teams from our community, schools, and board office. Everyone had a great time knowing that the proceeds support students and staff during difficult times. Why - because WE CARE.
