TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – On Saturday P.I.N.K of Terre Haute hosted their first public corn hole tournament at Show-Me’s Restaurant and Bar.

The event was able to help bring awareness to breast cancer and the cost that comes with it. People were able to take part in music, food, a raffle and then of course corn hole.

Event organizers said the money goes to more than just treatment of cancer patients.

“Whenever you have breast cancer you have all these unmet needs like gas expense, babysitting expenses, Medicare, or medicines – so we help pay for all that stuff,” explained Amy Bagnoche, P.I.N.K. of Terre Haute.

All of the money raised from the event on Saturday will go to help breast cancer patients right here in the Wabash Valley. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
