Verona Together, which has raised money for various families in town, has set the date for an expanded Charity Cornhole Tournament that will support institutions helping the Verona children who are battling cancer.

For the last few months, Dominic Cappello, an elementary school student, has been receiving treatment for brain cancer, while Verona High School student Daria Gebbia has been treated for bone cancer. After conversations with the Cappello and Gebbia families, Verona Together has decided to split the tournament proceeds between The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF), Goryeb Children’s Hospital (GCH) of Morristown, and The Valerie Fund.

This year’s tournament will be held on Saturday, August 27 at 4 p.m. on the lawn in front of town hall. Verona Together organizers Shawn Luftglass, Chris Kenrick, Chris Heimerle, Ryan Dacey and Brendan Walsh, above, were out measuring the lawn the other evening, so they known that there will be space for 64 teams. The cost is $300 for each two-player team and registration will open Wednesday, June 22, at 8 p.m. on Verona Together’s website.

“If history repeats itself, we expect this event to sell out VERY quickly,” Verona Together said on Instagram, “so please register as soon as possible.”
