Event description

Description

Come out for a chill kinda day while doing something good for the world. Can't beat that! Hang Loose 4 Haiti will be an indoor event that includes a cornhole comepetition, lots of dancing (latin, ballroom and Haitian), great food, Haitian market sellers and Virtual Reality Surfing! All in memory of Matt Vecere and his inspiration to do something good!

This event is dedicated to helping the children of L’Orphelinat Notre Dame du Perpetuel Secours, in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti, who are living in a place that for the most part was uninhabitable. Matt helped make this school known to his family and friends and advocated for a more sustainable life for them. He also found time to volunteer in disaster areas across the US because he was a great believer in getting up and doing something about the social and environmental injustices he saw.

Matt was one of 157 people onboard Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, which crashed during a journey from Addis Ababa to Nairobi. He was headed to a UN summit meeting to discuss environmental air improvements. This was not just a great loss to his family, friends, and community but to all of the kids and disaster relief groups that depended on him. In his memory, we encourage all to get up and do something good. Join us at Hang Loose 4 Haiti to continue Matt's legacy and support the kids that remember Matt as a father figure.

FAQs

How does the Cornhole Competition Work?

We will be using both 4ft and 3 ft cornhole boards. The boards will be placed at 22 feet from back rim to back rim to make the game more amateur friendly.

Anyone paying admission into the event is eligible to register for the competition. No added cost. But... you must register by 3:45 at Stardust during the event and have both teammates present for the start at 4 pm. Participants can practice on the boards between 3:30 and 4 pm. This is a double elimination tournament so you get to lose twice before you exit the game. Teams play until scoring 21, you must win by two points. Points include 3 points for getting in the hole completely and 1 point for landing on the board without hitting the ground first. Teams subtract points during a single round to come up with a formal score for the round (meaning if team 1 got 3 points in the hole and team 2 got 1 point for on the board... then team 1 would score 2 points for that round). Top winning teams will get prizes. Make sure you register with an exciting team name! All ages and abilities are encouraged to play!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No... Everyone is welcome to attend but you must be over 21 to drink. Stardust is a BYOB but ID may be asked for.

What can I bring into the event?

Food is served as part of the admission ticket but you are permitted to bring in any food or drink you like as Stardust is a BYOB and understands that certain guests have special diets.
