ARDMORE, Okla. (June 13, 2024)Noble Research Institute, the nation’s largest nonprofit agricultural research organization, hosted its second annual “Pitchin’ for the Pasture Cornhole Tournament,” presented by NABHOLZ. The tournament aims to highlight the integral role that healthy soil plays in contributing to improved food security, enhanced wildlife habitats and better air quality through carbon sequestration.

The private event, held on Thursday, June 6, 2024, at the Ardmore Convention Center, raised $60,000 to support Noble’s rancher education courses and help make a lasting impact locally and nationally in guiding land stewards in regenerative land management.

The 2024 tournament winner, Team Dollar General, secured a back-to-back tournament championship, scoring 21-19 over Team Purple Wave.

“We couldn’t be happier with the success of this year’s ‘Pitchin’ for the Pasture Cornhole Tournament,’ and the participation and giving from our corporate sponsors,” said Lindsey Kidd, officer of impact giving for Noble Research Institute. “Noble’s goal is to regenerate 164 million acres of US grazing lands by 2040, and through the contributions of companies like Dollar General and Purple Wave, we can bring more regenerative ag education to the farmers and ranchers working that land.”

The 2024 “Pitchin’ for the Pasture Cornhole Tournament” was made possible by contributions from generous organizations and businesses, including Mercy, the event’s warm-up sponsor.

“Improving health is at the foundation of everything we do at Mercy, which is why we connect so much with Noble’s mission and their work,” said Daryle Moss, president of Mercy Hospital Ardmore. “Noble believes that creating a healthier and more resilient environment starts with the soil, so for us, sponsoring ‘Pitchin’ for the Pasture’ is another way we are working to help make our communities and the people we serve healthier, stronger and better nourished.”
