Friends, Family Honor Memory of Ryan Harrington By Giving Back to Somerville
Friends and family of Ryan Harrington held their 3rd Annual Corn Toss Tournament to raise money for Somerville Organizations, netting $20,000 in revenue that was immediately donated to local recipients including the Somerville Youth Hockey (picture on the left), the YMCA (picture on the right),Somerville Youth Football and Cheer, Somerville Little League, and Somerville Pop Warner. In total, the Ryan Harrington Foundation has raised $40,000 in three years and have donated 95% of tournament proceeds.
The tournament, held in Ward 5's Trum Field, included the tournament played on hand-painted corn toss boards, as well as, raffles of items generously donated by local Somerville businesses. Eat at Jumbos, The Pub, On The Hill Tavern, Daddy Jones Bar and Olde Magoun's Saloon are just some of the participating businesses in the raffle.
This year's male winners were Douglas Huckins and Stephen Huckins of "The Hawks" while Alex Gustafson and Courtney White of "The Golddiggers" took home the women's championship.
