Dr. Shrink is well known for giving back to their local community in the small town of Manistee, MI. On
March 19th, in joint effort with local Moose Lodge No. 1128/2315, Dr. Shrink held a Cornhole Tournament
where all the proceeds raised went towards the Relay for Life by the American Cancer Society. Twenty-three
teams came out to support the cause from all around the area.

“We are doing a cornhole benefit for Relay for Life that is a joint effort of Team Moose Tracks (Relay for Life
Team) from the Moose Lodge No. 1128/2315 and Dr. Shrink,” said Melissa Spoor, HR Manager at Dr. Shrink.
“We talked to some of the people in the area and they said we should do an indoor bags (cornhole) tournament
because some of them want to play and that is where the idea came from. We were hoping for at least 20 teams
and we got 23, so we are good with that number. The tournament style is double-elimination and we are paying
out cash prizes for first and second prizes. There is $200 for first place, $100 for second place and we have
trophies for the first three places.”

Dr. Shrink and the Manistee Moose Lodge made it a fun day to be able to support such a great cause. The event
had a full concession stand, beverages, silent auction, and other giveaways available for the players and
spectators with all proceeds going towards the Relay for Life. Dr. Shrink is hoping to do another tournament at
the Relay for Life on July 30th in Manistee, MI or in the late fall or winter. The tournament raised over $2,600
for the Relay for Life.

Mike Stenberg, Dr. Shrink President/CEO enjoyed the tournament and stated, "We at Dr. Shrink are well
pleased with the excellent turnout at our first annual cornhole tournament. The teams had a great time while the
final tally for Relay For Life was just shy of $2,700.00. Of course, we had plenty of volunteers and sponsors to
make the program come together. Thanks to everyone!"
