Boston YPEM Cornhole Classic 2023

On Tuesday, August 15, 2023, professionals gathered at 90FS for Boston YPEM Cornhole Classic 2023. Players, spectators, sponsors and volunteers came together and raised $18,000 for EMF’s Discovery Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and EMF’s SAMFund grant program for young adults struggling from the financial impacts of cancer.

A special thank you to the highest fundraiser, Boston YPEM Leadership team member, Mario Reto from Ampersand Capital Partners with a fundraising total of over $1,200!

Teams of 2-4 battled for the trophies in the cornhole competition while spectators relaxed and watched the tournament. Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed a variety of drinks from Anheuser-Busch, Barr Hill, Beatbox, Boston Beer Company, RISE, and Tito’s, complemented by food from Blount Fine Foods, DeAvila’s Catering, Domino’s Pizza, El Pelón Taqueria, Shake Shack, and Thiccy’s Taco Club. EMF extends a huge thank you to all of the event players, spectators, sponsors, food and beverage donors, and especially the volunteers who donated their time to support Boston YPEM Cornhole Classic 2023 and EMF’s mission to help create a better today and brighter tomorrow for the cancer community.
