Saturday, May 31, is going to be a busy, fun-filled day with something for everyone, benefiting a fine young boy, Connor Aaron, 10 year old from Charlestown, who has Cystic Fibrosis. This event will be spread out over two locations, Cornhole Tourney and Motorcycle Ridge registration will be on the square in Charlestown. Bands playing and live auction will be held at the VFW Post 1427, corner of Harrison and Main Streets.

The Cornhole Tournament, which will be played on the square in Charlestown, will be a fun tournament for adults and kids, with prizes and gift certificates for the first, second and third place teams. No money prizes. It will begin around 11 to 11:30 a.m. Registration will begin at 10 a.m. Cost is $20 per team and it will be a double elimination tournament. Open to anyone 10 years of age or older. Again, this is a fun tournament, so no ACO Pro Teams. There will also be side contests. All proceeds will go to benefit Connor Aaron. So bring the whole family out to enjoy this fun event. For more information you can contact the Tournament Director, Jeff Shepherd Sr. at 812-406-6575.

The Motorcycle Ride, which will consist of a 100 mile ride through scenic Southern Indiana, will begin at 11:30 a.m. Registration will be on the square in Charlestown and runs from 9 to 11 a.m. with kick stands up at 11:30 a.m. The cost is $20 single and $25 double. There will be lunch served after the ride at the VFW. For more information contact Scott Meadors at 502-243-7543 or Chuck Deaton at 502-773-8917.

There will be musical entertainment throughout the day and evening at the VFW with different bands playing an assortment of music. For more information on the bands you may contact Robbie Davidson at 502-876-1252.

Last but certainly not least, there will be a live auction beginning at 5 p.m. at the VFW Post 1427 in Charlestown.  There will be several items, to many to name, that will be up for grabs to the highest bidder. If you can’t come out and would like to donate something for the auction, feel free to contact one of the benefit hosts above to have your item picked up.

Again, all proceeds from this fundraiser go directly to benefit Connor Aaron.
