CraigCampbellCraig Campbell is set to host the 5th Annual Celebrity Cornhole Challenge during CMA Fest week on Tuesday, June 6th. Last year’s fundraiser had much success, raising over  $35,000. The event will take place in a new spot this year; City Winery. The cornhole challenge begins at 2:30pm with the benefit dinner at 6:00pm.

When Campbell was just 11 years old, he lost his father to colorectal cancer. He wanted to create awareness for this disease, so he started the cornhole tournament as a campaign five years ago. “I can’t believe this is our fifth year having the cornhole tournament! I’m so proud that we can still do this event, raising money and awareness to fight colorectal cancer,” shared Campbell. “I always get excited knowing we are gonna have a great time throwing bags all while doing what we can to erase this terrible disease.”

For this tournament, artists are paired against fans who have bid online to play. There is an array of celebrity attendees that include Dee Jay Silver, Trent Harmon, Nascar Driver Scott Lagasse, Jr., Jackie Lee, Love and Theft, Jerrod Niemann, Parmalee, Michael Ray and Thompson Square with more announcements to come. With this being an open to the public event, fans can stop by outside of City Winery to watch their favorites play.

Immediately following the tournament, Campbell will also be hosting the One Million Strong benefit. The evening will include a cocktail reception, live and silent audiences, and an intimate concert with Campbell, Rivers Rutherford and more special guests to be announced. Nashville leaders, Mayor Megan Barry and Chief Medical Officer of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Andrea Willis will be speaking on colorectal cancer and survivors will share their stories of hope and inspiration. Larry Nall, Senior Vice President of Provider Network Management, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, will be recognized for his leadership around colorectal cancer awareness and advocacy. Proceeds for both events benefit Fight CRC.
