The Holt Brothers // Bank of America Bowl grew again this year with 22 flag football teams and a highly competitive Cornhole Tournament. With the help of our teammates, we raised more than $140,000 to benefit kids who have a parent with cancer.
Flag Football Champions
Bank of America, our naming rights sponsor, brought their game. The BOA team captured the Championship Trophy with a score of 6-0 on May 19th at the NC State Indoor / Outdoor Practice Facilities.
Citrix Green, one of the most competitive teams throughout the tournament’s three-year run, came in second, with newcomer DO Supply snagging third place.
Adam and Adam from Stewart were the winners of the first-ever Holt Brothers Cornhole Tournament. Marc and Troy from Citrix came in second, and Sean and James from Bandwidth came in third.
Bandwidth brought in the dough, raising almost $20,000 for the Holt Brothers Foundation and kids who have a parent with cancer. Thanks to CEO David Morken, who offered up his mug to Bandwidth’s “Pie in the Face” contest, and to all the Bandwidth employees who participated in their online auction. (Ask them about the John Deere mug).
Daniel Clinton from Bandwidth was the top individual fundraiser with $16,000.
Dixon Hughes Goodman (pictured below) came in second with more than $12,000 raised, and also won the Best Dressed Team contest, crushing it with a Mardi Gras-themed outfit complete with gold pants and shoelaces.
Best Tailgate Winner – Three Years in a Row!
Duke Raleigh won the Best Tailgate Contest. Again. For the third year in a row. The judges cited the team’s creativity and the skills of their grill master, Chief Medical Officer Michael Spiritos, who smoked beef brisket. (The judges raved!) Check out the IVs and syringes used for beverages and the Duke blue “fountain” made out of children’s wading pools.
