4th Annual Cornhole Classic Brings an Afternoon of Play to Benefit Arts Scholarships

The North End’s favorite Sunday Funday came back with a vengeance for the 4th Annual Cornhole Classic! In its new location at Fulton & Lewis Streets, hundreds came out for competitive cornhole tournament games, raffles, silent auction, food trucks and music by DJ Justin Amoroso.

The annual charity event is sponsored by State Rep. Aaron Michlewitz to benefit the Geraldine Marshall Scholarship Fund and North End Music and Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC). Along with 100 cornhole teams, joining the fun were Boston Mayor Marty WalshCity Councilors Michelle Wu and Lydia Edwards and State Senator Joe Boncore.

Mayor Marty Walsh teamed up with Rep. Michlewitz to take on hockey legend Ray Bourque (also from the North End’s Tresca) and former House Speaker Sal DiMasi. Each team took a game to call it a draw. Winning the full tournament (again) were teams from Karen Ray’s Dogfather in 1st and 2nd place. Fulton Street’s own Andy McDonald’s team held in for 3rd place.
