Annual Cornhole Tournament

Due to COVID-19, we had to cancel the 2020 Cornhole event. However, we are launching a new "WIF Challenge" on social media this fall.

 

The Foundation hosts an annual Cornhole Tournament. The event is a lot of fun and has opportunities to compete and sponsorship.

 

Highlights from the last event:

In 2019, 48 teams competed (up from 32 in 2018) and one survived. David Maynes and Douglas Thompson of the “Big D” team edged Angry Buffaloes in the title game and took home the $1,000 first prize. The Buffaloes exited with $200.

Sticky Lips BBQ did a terrific job again catering to the event and its team advanced to the playoffs this year, exiting in the Round of 16. Rising Storm Brewery out of Livingston County and Anthony Road Winery, which has strong Irondequoit ties, kept our players’ thirst quenched and Camp Eastman was a great partner providing the event with a lot of space, a great sound system, lighting –just an outstanding facility!

Thanks again to major sponsor Diamond Packaging, FULL MEA5URE, and Sticky Lips BBQ! We hope everyone who played and attended had a blast!

"Buy-A-Brick" Campaign

The “Buy-A-Brick” Campaign was established to allow Residents, staff and other interested benefactors to purchase engraved bricks in memory of or in honor of persons, businesses or organizations for the Alumni Courtyard at Irondequoit High School.

 

The idea for the Alumni Courtyard, which is meant to symbolize the loyalty and commitment of residents in our community and IHS alumni, was introduced in late 1990. The design was implemented by architect John Patterson, IHS class of 1959 and intern Cory Greene, IHS class of 1991. The construction efforts were the tireless work of foundation directors and community residents, under the leadership of Foundation President Bob Sterrett, and in October 1991, the courtyard was dedicated.  There are 1,859 bricks.

Order Deadline:  APRIL 15, 2021 to ensure courtyard placement by June 2021.
(Bricks ordered after April 15 will be installed in the courtyard in June 2021.)

Dake School Engraved Slates

As part of the district’s capital improvement project, the 75 year old slate roof of Dake School was replaced, leaving behind approximately 250 pieces of slate.  Those pieces are now for sale to community members for $50.  The Foundation has had them engraved with the following symbols of Irondequoit: the cupola at Dake School, an eagle, a house, a lighthouse, and pine trees.  The words “welcome” or “welcome friends” are etched around the design.  Each slate also bears the notation “Dake School roofing slate, 1931” on the back.  The engraving was done by Madaket Bay Engraving of Irondequoit.
