The 7th Annual Cornhole Challenge
On Saturday, October 6th, Van Metre hosted the 7th annual Van Metre Cornhole Challenge presented by Buhl Electric as part of the Brambleton Fall Festival. 32 teams participated and raised more than $110,000 for three amazing organizations: HeroHomes of Loudoun, HomeAid Northern Virgina, and Payton's Project. Read on to find out more about how supporting the Cornhole Challenge will build new lives for people facing homelessness, make dreams of home ownership a reality for vets, and provide counseling and other support for teens facing bullying and suicide.
The Van Metre Companies Foundation graciously put on the event.
Not only did the Intercocktails raise significant funds, but they also took home this year's Golden Bag trophies! Congrats and thank you, Intercocktails!
HeroHomes of Loudoun
Building houses, jobs, and community for those who have fought for the preservation of freedom and democracy for others. HeroHomes is a 501(c)3 not for profit foundation established to build houses for those who have fought for the preservation of freedom and democracy for others. These deserving vets and their families cannot regain what they lost defending our country, but we can give them a new start in building a solid foundation for their future and the dignity of an independent life in a wonderful small town community setting. We provide the opportunity for disabled veterans to rejoin society with the security and pride of home ownership.
Homeaid northern virginia
HomeAid Northern Virginia builds new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. Our programs serve a diverse mix of people within the homeless population, including victims of domestic violence; people with disabilities; those suffering from chronic physical or mental health issues; and homeless children and teens. HomeAid’s goal is to be a major resource for Northern Virginia service providers: our Shelter Program enables area shelter organizations to expand their housing and programming options with the savings provided, and our Helping Hands program helps fill in the gaps, through donations of household goods and food items for projects we’ve recently completed. These programs help homeless families and individuals to gain stability and a roof over their heads and offer the tools necessary to rebuild their lives on a secure foundation of self-confidence and hope.
An anti-bullying campaign and advocacy group based in DC. Paytons Project advocates for better anti-bullying legislation and provides support groups for children and teens facing bullying.
Payton's Project is current lobbying to pass “Payton’s Law,” a series of measures to strengthen current anti-bullying law to offer better protections and improved resources.
