2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament Announced

Trey’s Avengers is excited to announce our 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament supporting the JDRF One Walk.  In 2016, we hosted our inaugural event with 31 teams, raising over $2,500 with the help of our gracious hosts Hurley’s Tavern.  It was an absolutely amazing event and we can’t wait to do it again!

Based on that success, this year we will be hosting a very similar event – same great location, new {cooler} September date.  We hope that everyone will join us again this year for our 2nd Annual tournament in the Innsbrook Pavilion.

Details are below and can also be found on our Facebook page and Registration page.

$2,500 raised at Trey’s Avengers 1st Annual Cornhole Tournament

Wow!  What a day we had yesterday!  Our hearts are just over-flowing with gratitude for everyone involved with our first ever Cornhole Tournament!  $2,500 for JDRF! Where do I even start!

We filled THIRTY ONE of our thirty two spots – so close!  And we had a great group of people out.  Tons of spectators and friends!

We appreciate everyone who came out to join us – those who played, everyone who donated or bought raffle tickets, our volunteers, our friends and the fine folks at our sponsor, Hurleys!  The kid’s had a great time in our kid’s are and on stage, calling time, announcing games and pulling raffle tickets!   They were naturals.

One of this tournaments special rules was the ‘Cheats for Charity’ – $3 let a team jump around, steal bags and slap them out of the way all to increase their chances at victory.  We had one team swat a bag into the Bocce court!  Soo much fun to watch and of course, meant lots of extra cash for JDRF!

In the end, after almost 5 hours of play, our champions were crowned, winning a set of custom made cornhole boards.  Second and third place team took home Prize packs donated by Innsbrook merchants.  Congrats gentlemen, you all played hard!

 

Thank you all for your support!

Trey’s Avenger’s 2016 Cornhole Tournament

This year we are so excited to mix things up and try our hand at a new event – the first ever Trey’s Avengers Cornhole Tournament.  Scheduled for Sunday July 17th – this won’t be your normal Cornhole Tournament – we are planning a few “Cheats for Charity” that will kick up the event and make these games really entertaining to the last.

Each two person team will receive two free drink tickets and will be eligible to win the tournament Grand Prize – a custom made set of Cornhole Boards – make to the winners specs!  They are awesome.

The events are not just for the cornhole teams.  We will have drink and appetizer Happy Hour Specials all day for everyone.  And a dedicated kid’s are staffed by volunteers to entertain the half pints so parents can sit back and enjoy a beverage and some food in the Innsbrook Courtyard.

A huge thank you to you sponsor – Hurley’s Tavern – who will be providing awesome food and drink specials all afternoon.

So stay tuned to our Facebook event page for updates and details.

JDRF Gala – 2016

The Annual JDRF Gala is an amazing event and for the past few years our family has been fortunate enough to be given the opportunity as volunteers.  At the Gala we help raise over $250,000 in one evening with the help of amazing attendees, corporate sponsors and auction donations and winners.

This year I (Danielle) was asked to be one of the event photographers.  Capturing the perfection of this event at the Jefferson Hotel was so much fun.

But of course, my favorite part (to watch and photograph) was Trey as one of the JDRF Youth Ambassadors.  He has a few responsibilities as Youth Ambassador, such as writing Thank You notes to donors.  But the best part is one of the last events of the evening – the ‘Fund A Cure’ Auction.  Each of the kids is “auctioned” off at a set dollar amount.  Because it was his 10th birthday that night, Trey was given the $10,000 slot.

Each Ambassador was also given a moment to tell a bit of their story of being a Type 1 Diabetic – how it affected their lives or why they hoped for a cure.  I sat in the audience with tears in my eyes.  Trey did awesome and made us all proud.

 

Assemble for a Cure 2014

This was our inaugural event for Trey’s Avengers.  It was a huge leap of faith and a huge success.

Friends, family and beer drinking fans were invited out to Triple Crossing Brewing for live music, great raffles and a bit of Type 1 Awareness.

2013 JDRF One Walk – Richmond, VA

What a crazy and unexpected year it’s been and what better way to end it than this Walk.  Almost a year ago, Trey received his original diagnosis of Type 1 – it was a scary and emotional time as we started our journey into the world of Type 1.  A world we will not leave until a cure is found.

When our family decided to join the JDRF Walk for a Cure in July it was mostly a leap of faith.    A “well…. why not” moment.  We didn’t have big plans, we were just going to see what happened.  And well, all of you, our amazing friends and family happened.    We felt love and support from across the country as so many people send kind words and donations to JDRF and so many of our friends joined us on Walk Day.  With your help, Treys Avenger’s raised over $7,200 in our first year!  Thank you!

And let’s just say that Walk day was perfect.  Weather was perfect, walk was beautiful!   And Trey’s Avengers won the tee shirt design contest!!
