DESTIN — Crestview was well represented during the Destin Charity Cornhole Tournament this past weekend at Destin Commons.

Spartans, the team of Steve Preble and James Dufour from Crestview, ranked third during the sporting event. Twenty-eight teams competed for a $500 cash prize and trophies.

Proceeds of over $4,000 from the event and a silent auction of five cornhole board sets — custom painted by area artists — benefited the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Centers in Okaloosa and Walton counties.

Participants and spectators enjoyed visiting the Beer Garden sponsored by World of Beer, complete with free bottomless craft beer, bloody Marys, mimosas and snacks.

The Cumulus radio stations Z96, 99Rock, Coast 93.3, NASH FM 105.5 and NewsTalk 1260 co-hosted the event with Destin Commons, along with the support of major sponsor MedSpa of Destin and Sandestin.

“We were so pleased with the success of the first year for the Destin Charity Cornhole Tournament,” Julie Hurst, CEO of both ECCAC facilities, said. “And, most important, the monies raised will benefit our kids who are dealing with abusive situations in their young lives.

“We’re looking forward to the second annual (event) next year.”
