Thank You!

WOW! Over $91,000 raised and a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for Largest cornhole tournament! All thanks to the amazing support we received from our community – sponsors, donors, tournament participants, spectators, and volunteers! The 10th annual Cabin Fever Bean Bag Tournament was a tremendous success! The funds raised will be donated to the Eagles Cancer Telethon which is dedicated to improving people's lives by raising funds for cancer research. The telethon benefactors are the cancer research centers at Mayo Clinic, the University of Minnesota, and Hormel Institute.

As you are probably aware, this was the final year of the Cabin Fever Bean Bag Tournament, at least for now. The committee members have dedicated countless hours over the last decade to create a fantastic event and an opportunity to support the fight against cancer, a disease that affects us all. We hope that you have enjoyed the tournament and all that it has entailed over the years. We are extremely grateful and humbled by the amount of support we have received. While we will always cherish the time we have spent together as a committee, working toward our collective goal, we all have very busy lives and families (that have grown over the last decade!). Our responsibilities have changed as have our priorities.

That is not to say that continued philanthropy and generosity are any less important! But that is where YOU come in. We encourage YOU to continue to make a difference, whether in the fight against cancer or another cause that is close to your heart. When Cabin Fever began, none of us had any special training or specific knowledge about fundraising, gambling laws, or cornhole for that matter. Together we learned along the journey and look what became of it! With your help, we raised over a half million dollars!

We had two goals for our final tournament; to break the record and to break $100,000. We’ve accomplished one of those goals and we’re so close to the other. There is still time to help us. You can purchase some Cabin Fever gear or make a cash donation from the web site. If all of the record-breaking participants donate as little as $20 each, or if everyone who received this email donates $10, we will exceed our goal!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your support. We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of our players, spectators, donors, sponsors, and volunteers!
