Jackson's Cornhole Tournament III

Jackson's Cornhole Tournament benefits the Phelan-McDermid Syndrome Foundation and The Laughing Duck Autism Support Group. Our event has raised $15,000 for this Foundation to date and we hope to raise $10,000 in 2013. Proceeds from our event directly benefit research iniatives and to assist The Laughing Duck Autism Support Group. Currently there is only about 800 known worldwide cases of Phelan-McDermid Syndrome.

New this year will be an all you can eat pancake and sausage breakfast presented by Chris Cakes. The tentative start time for the breakfast is 9 a.m. but more details will be announced as they come available about this exciting addition to our event.



What is Phelan-McDermid Syndrome?

Phelan-McDermid Syndrome (PMS), also known as 22q13 Deletion Syndrome, is a genetic disorder caused by the loss of genes at the tip of the 22nd chromosome. A lack of the Shank3/ProSAP2 gene is suspected as the primary cause of the symptoms associated with this syndrome.
