If you were hoping to go to Sole beach bar this Sunday, you might need to change your plans.  At least part of it will be closed down as Dion Dawkins brings a charity cornhole tournament there.

What is Cornhole?

In a nutshell, cornhole is a backyard game that is played with two cornhole boards and bean bags.  The boards are simply boards that are set at an angle with one hole in them.  They are separated by 27 feet.  Each player will try to sink their four bean bags in the hole on the board.  If you do get one in, it's three points.  If you get one on the board it's one point.  One team will alternate throwing their bags one at a time with the hopes of canceling out their opponent's points.

What is Dion's Dreamers?

Dion Dawkins has been a member of the Buffalo Bills for 7 years now.  He is going into his 8th year with the team.  When he arrived here, he set up a charity called Dion's Dreamers which helps to provide mentorship and support to young men and women in underserved communities, as well as those in a place of mental, financial, or physical hardship.

Dion Dawkins Charity Cornhole Tournament
