Jimmy Graham To Hold Cornhole Challenge Event July 22nd

New Packers TE Jimmy Graham will be introducing the "Jimmy Graham Charity Cornhole Challenge" on July 22nd at Badger State Brewing Company in Green Bay. It formally starts at 1:00 PM, with doors opening at noon. Tickets to attend are available now; the cost is $35 ahead of time or $40 the day of the event for a single ticket and $130 for a group of four. All returns will be given to a couple of Graham's favorite organizations: The Wounded Warrior Project and Angel Flight.

Whether or not you are good at cornhole, this is an opportunity to meet a Packers player, give to a good cause, and drink some specialty lager all in the meantime. Attendees will get complimentary drinks from Badger State Brewing, while some food trucks will be nearby and will give a segment of their profit to the foundations. Silent auction sales will also be held, with an assortment of Packers-related items to win including tickets to the opening game against the Bears, a tour of Lambeau Field with Graham, signed stock, and more.

              Marlon Lewinter, who represents the ACL and works with Graham said "While Jimmy has yet to catch a pass from Aaron Rodgers, he's very much into charity and thought this was a good way to introduce himself to Green Bay. Not only will fans love having him in the red zone, but he's a really likeable guy. He's excited to introduce himself and show Green Bay what he's about."

The Cornhole Challenge sounds kind of ominous. Be careful if you plan to participate.

How would Beavis and Butt-Head respond to this?

Esera Tuaolo founded the Hate is Wrong nonprofit. From the About section of the organization's website : "Hate is Wrong's purpose is to foster diversity in sports and anti-bullying among youth".

Also from the site: "While playing in the NFL as a closeted gay man, Esera Tuaolo cut short acts of discrimination around him merely by standing up and imposing, "Hate in any form is wrong"". After coming out as gay in the early 2000s, Tuaolo began advocating for inclusion, speaking at corporations and colleges, along with implementing anti-bullying programs at high schools.

Tuaolo had a nine year NFL career, playing in 107 games.

.....where I'm from...."corn holing" has a VERY different definition......

Too bad I can't make it, as I would have dominated. Soap!

Kinda disgusting ... really.
Per Seinfeld ..."not that there's anything wrong with it."

I would just hope that all video is dis-allowed at the event.

I honestly don't care what you do in private, but I don't think it is appropriate to be corn holing in public... much less judging the quality of your ability at it. I have heard the key is to relax.
