HERITAGE FOUNDTION ANNOUNCES 2ND ANNUAL CORNHOLE TOURNAMENT

Heritage Foundation’s Next Gen membership group and Leiper’s Fork Distillery host tournament  

FRANKLIN, TN – The Heritage Foundation of Williamson County’s 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament, produced by Next Gen Heritage Foundation and Leiper’s Fork Distillery will be held on May 18, 2019 at the distillery. 

Sponsored by Frost Brown Todd Attorneys, the cornhole tournament serves as a family-friendly community event and an opportunity for the Heritage Foundation’s Next Gen members to network with other community members, ages 21-40.

From 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. a two-tier bracket cornhole tournament will take place on the grounds of Leiper’s Fork Distillery. In addition to the tournament, there will be live music, a kid’s area, food trucks, tours of Leiper’s Fork Distillery and whiskey tastings. True to the Heritage Foundation’s mission, guests who go on the tour will learn about the historic cabin on the distillery property, built by James Daniel from Yellow Creek (VanLeer) in Tennessee circa 1820-1825, which currently houses the distillery gift shop, tasting room and offices.

The winning team of the tournament will receive a $250 cash prize. Registration is open now until May 11, 2019. Two-person teams can register for $50 at WilliamsonHeritage.org/Cornhole. If you are interested in volunteering at the event, there are spots available through a link on the webpage also.  

Next Gen’s mission is to engage community members, ages 21-40, in the mission of the Heritage Foundation through education in local history, preservation of places that matter and furthering a sense of community. Next Gen helps support the organization by volunteering, supporting fundraising efforts, planning regular mixers and events and recruiting new members. Membership is $50/year.
