Sponsorship Levels

Last year, 15 teams from the Cincinnati community rallied together for an intense cornhole tournament, headed by the American Cornhole Organization. Teams representing Cincinnati's tech and business sector, as well as Per Scholas employer partners and alumni battled it out in hopes of being crowned the winner of the first ever Toss for Techs tournament. E.W. Scripss Company ultimately were crowned the winners after going head to head with CityLink in the finals. 

With a whirlwind of a tourney bringing the community together, attendees were treated to an endearing speech by Per Scholas alum Aaron Mingo, who shared his story of working as a server in a restaurant for 12 years before finding Per Scholas. The audience became entranced with Aaron's commitment to seek better opportunities, and exploded with applause knowing that he's able to better support his family with his new career in technology. 

By nights end, Per Scholas was able to raise more than $12,000 to support more students like Aaron and help them launch careers in technology.
