Nearly a hundred people, including 24 teams, from across the Midwest Territory and Chicagoland area took part in the event.

“Thank you to all the IAM Districts and Locals and Chicagoland residents who took part in this great event,” said IAM Midwest Territory General Vice President Philip J. Gruber. “Thank you to our many sponsors, including Jeff Grim, president of Employee Benefit Systems. And a very special thank you to IAM Grand Lodge Representative Marty St. Peters who created, planned, and helped pull this entire night together. This was the Midwest Territory’s first time hosting a GDA Cornhole event, and based on this first year’s participation, I’d say it was a huge success.”

All proceeds from the event are donated to Guide Dogs of America, a non-profit organization supported by the generosity of individuals, foundations, corporations, and other organizations in its mission to provide guide dogs free of charge to blind and visually-impaired individuals in the U.S. and Canada.
