Nevelle Island, PA (PRWEB) May 29, 2014
Pittsburgh’s Cintas First Aid & Safety will be host to the 2014 Cornhole Classic benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project on Saturday, June 7, 2014 from 5:30–10:00pm at RMU Island Sports Center. In addition to a thrilling cornhole tournament, the event will include a Chinese Auction, 50/50 raffle and food. Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishing cornhole teams. There is still time to register two-person teams by contacting Lori Seekely at Cintas First-Aid and Safety WarriorProjL(at)gmail(dot)com or by phone at 724-825-2524.
MyWay Mobile Storage is sponsoring the event along with Cintas, Robert Morris University, Street City Cornhole, Durable Documents, 84 Lumber, and the Carpenters Joint Apprentice Training Committee (JATC).
“The Wounded Warrior Project helps injured soldiers—warriors—returning home from conflicts around the world. I wanted to do something to help them,” said event organizer, Jeff Hancher, Cintas Sales Manager. “These brave individuals and their families need our support now more than ever.”
Hancher continued, “Wounded Warrior Project's primary vision is to foster the most successful well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history. We applaud that vision, and hope others will share in our support of their efforts by joining us at this event. We know Pittsburghers love cornhole, competition, and supporting our troops and we’re hoping for a good turnout.”
Ed Sickmund, MyWay Mobile Storage Market Owner said, “More soldiers survive their injuries than in the past thanks to better body armor and better medicine, but that means that the number of service men and women returning home with physical or mental injuries is greater.” Sickmund continued, “MyWay is pleased to be able to give something back to these warriors and their families who have given so much to our country.” Our storage containers were ideal to transport the raw materials and then pick up the finished boards from the Carpenters JATC.
“We wanted to help, and building the cornhole boards was a no-brainer for us,” said “Ricky O” (Okraszewski) of the Carpenters JATC. “I really like the way the Wounded Warrior Project puts it, ‘it’s not about the war, it’s about the warrior.’ You can’t argue with that.”
“Every dollar raised helps us continue and expand our programs for wounded warriors returning home to the Pittsburgh area. Everyone’s recovery process is different. Depending where they are in their own rehabilitative and transitional process, we help them find a program that fits them and their family’s needs,” said Melaine Huber, of Wounded Warriors Project. “We want warriors to Remember, you are not alone in this journey. Whether you are newly injured or have been on the path to recovery for a while, we are here to support you as you define your new normal.”
Huber continued, "Fundraisers like this cornhole tournament help the Wounded Warrior Project expand and improve our programs. Our programs are uniquely structured to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement.
