Angels’ Lighthouse Foundation to host beanbag tourney Sept.

The Angels’ Lighthouse Foundation will sponsor a beanbag tournament Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Old Mt. Olive Lake park just off Old Route 66, with games to begin at 10 a.m.

The game, also called “corn hole,” is played similarly to washers and horseshoes. No experience is necessary to participate. Food will be available for purchase, and there will be raffles.

Cost to participate is $25 for a two-person team. First-place winners will receive $50, and second place will receive $25.

The Angels’ Lighthouse Foundation is a nonprofit organization created to assist those in local small communities and rural areas that are struggling financially due to life-threatening or chronic diseases. The group helps them get to their healthcare providers for follow-up appointments, treatments and tests by offering transportation assistance for their medical needs via volunteer drivers or monetary assistance. They will also assist with lodging expenses if treatment requires an overnight stay and the treatment is done more than 25 miles away from the patient’s home.

The Foundation is recognized by the federal government as a public nonprofit organization and is registered with the state of Illinois and the Illinois Attorney General’s Office. The founder, Pam Seketa Partridge, lives in Sawyerville. Tax-deductible contributions are welcome at any time.
