Denver, Colo. – Denver Broncos Guard Ben Garland will host the inaugural Bags to the Future bag toss tournament to benefit SōDE Solution, a non-profit organization that he and his Air Force Academy graduate classmates formed five years ago.
Ben created this one-of-a-kind summer kick-off event to bring football fans and Denver Broncos players together for some fun while raising money to provide SōDE’s recipients with a sense of self-worth, learn new skills, and become self-sufficient.
Bags to the Future takes place on Wednesday, May 21, at LoDo’s Bar and Grill in Lone Tree, Colo. Sponsors and guests will be treated to a unique event complete with food and beverages and the opportunity to play bag toss against Ben’s Denver Broncos teammates.
If you’re not familiar with bag toss (also known as cornhole), its similar to horseshoes but with wooden board targets and weighted beanbags. There is a $50 fee to attend and a $150 registration fee per two-person team. Visit SodeSolution.org to buy tickets or register your team.
Over the past few years, Ben Garland has been passionate about using his role with the Denver Broncos to support the team’s community efforts. He was voted by his teammates as one of the two Denver Broncos player nominees for the Byron “Whizzer” White Award, honoring work in the community. Bags to the Future is his first fundraiser for the organization with a mission of creating sustainability and changing economic situations in order to be part of the solution in ending sex-trafficking.
About SōDE Solutions
SōDE Solutions started 5 years ago with a mission to aid human trafficking rescue homes through creating legitimate businesses, which provides both a job/income for the survivors and brings revenue into the organization. This mission has evolved as we learn more about the social justice/mission field and continue to adapt to meet the true problems faced by our partners. When it comes to social justice and missions, we owe it to the hurting and lost to not be okay with the status quo. We have to innovate.
