Atlanta Nonprofits Toss for Charity during Gas South’s Annual Cornhole Challenge

Gas South awards $15,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta at SweetWater 420 Fest

 

ATLANTA – 16 metro Atlanta charities took part in Gas South’s 3rd Annual Cornhole Challenge at SweetWater Brewing Co.’s 420 Fest on Sunday, April 20 at Centennial Olympic Park. The top two teams battled for a grand prize of $15,000, courtesy of Gas South and SweetWater, with Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta taking home first place.

 

Thousands of people flocked to April’s most anticipated festival, which took place the last weekend before Earth Day. As the presenting sponsor, Gas South hosted Planet 420, a special segment of the event dedicated to raising sustainability awareness and teaching Atlantans about being green.

Planet 420 included the Nonprofit Village, where local charities offered sustainability workshops, green product solutions and competed in the Cornhole Challenge. The Planet 420 stage hosted a variety of great music throughout the weekend. 

Gas South was pleased to award the grand prize of $15,000 to this year’s winner, Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, who defeated The Giving Kitchen in the championship round.

“We appreciate the chance to take part in Gas South’s Charity Cornhole Tournament and are thrilled to take home this big win for our kids,” said Missy Dugan, president & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta. “Thanks to the commitment of organizations like Gas South and SweetWater Brewing, we are able to shape the lives of thousands of kids and teens in and around Atlanta helping them achieve academically, live healthy and lead in their communities.”Additional prizes for cornhole participants included a VIP Experience at SweetWater, SweetWater Cornhole boards and more.

“Gas South has sponsored 420 Fest for the last six years and SweetWater remains a valued partner of ours,” said Chris Coan, vice president of business and government markets at Gas South. “Our promise to give back to the communities we serve, while remaining environmentally conscious, aligns perfectly with the festival and is the reason for Gas South’s continued support. Congratulations to Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, our latest Charity Cornhole Tournament Champion!”
