We are excited to announce that the Ohio State Evans Scholars' second annual Knockerball Tournament will be happening on Sunday, April 22, at the Lincoln Tower Fields. We are raising money for Mental Health America of Franklin County this year. Mental Health America is an organization that uses their influence to raise awareness of the issue of mental health in the Franklin County area and offers assistance to those who are suffering from mental illnesses.
We are hosting this tournament in the hopes to raise money for this great cause, and to work toward the goal of ending the stigma surrounding mental health.
Along with the tournament we will be doing several fundraisers, including a silent auction on the day of, a Blaze Pizza fundraiser on March 30, and a donut putting contest on the oval the week of the event.
In addition to teams formed by OSU students, we have four sponsored teams that will be filled by OSU Evans Scholars.
We would like to give a huge shout out to Purdue, Miami, Michigan and Marquette Evans Scholars for helping raise mental health awareness.
We look forward to the event this weekend.
