Clay County residents had an opportunity to win free tickets for the Clay County Community Foundation Harvest Hoedown Friday at Riddell National Bank.

Bank employees challenged residents to games of cornhole Friday afternoon in the bank's lobby.

Residents who were victorious received $5 plus a free ticket to the Harvest Hoedown, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 25, from 4-11 p.m., at the Clay County 4-H Fairgrounds.

Those planning on attending the Harvest Hoedown will have an opportunity to challenge each other at one of six professional cornhole venues.

Teams and individuals will get to challenge each other in the game as the hoedown commences.

The Clay County Community Foundation will be celebrating 10 years of service at the event.

Pappy's Barbecue will provide a Texas-style Barbecue dinner, serving from 4-8 p.m.

In addition to horseshoes and cornhole for the adults, children will be provided games as well.

Live entertainment will be featured throughout the evening, including square dancing with call from Brad Smith.

A silent auction will feature unique items with all bidding proceeds benefiting the foundation.

The foundation is an affiliate of the Wabash Valley Community Foundation and recently distributed $32,500 in grants to non-profit agencies that provide services to Clay County citizens.

Tickets cost $15 for general admission. Children under 12 will be admitted for $5.

Tickets may be purchased in Clay County at Riddell National Bank, First Financial Bank, Harris Bank, Terre Haute Savings Bank and Fifth Third Bank.
