ABOUT THE EVENT:
Chris Cardi Inc. presents the Sunday Funday Jenga Jam at H Street Country Club, in partnership with the GrantEd Foundation.
Our interactive fundraiser style pop-up celebrates the release of this year's CHRiS CARDi INC. H Street NE capsule collection, while benefiting educators and students in our area through the GrantEd Foundation/Taste of H Street initiative.
MORE ON OUR PARTNER:
GrantEd Foundation was founded as the vehicle to ensure that teachers would no longer have to spend their own money to keep their classrooms adequately supplied, to provide out-of-classroom experiences for their students, or to access the professional development necessary to keep DC classrooms current and effective. We stay focused on this singular purpose, certain that this simple and efficient model that puts educational philanthropic dollars directly into the hands of teachers will revolutionize how communities support their schools.
HOW OUR EVENTS HELP:
Our goal is to raise a minimum of $400 dollars leading up to and during the Sunday Funday Jenga Jam. Competitors participating in the Jenga tournament will pay a $20 player’s registration fee to compete, all of which will be donated to the GrantEd Foundation. Participants will receive a gift bag filled with H Street NE goodies, including this year’s H ST. NE cap, button set, stickers, and more just for entering the competition. The winner of the tournament will receive a designer CHRiS CARDi Traveler Bag, H Street NE t-shirt, complimentary tickets to GrantEd Foundation’s Taste Of H Street event in November, and more. Grand prizes totaling more than $400!
THE JENGA TOURNAMENT:
The event style pop-up will encompass a 16 seed jenga tournament that will promptly start at 5:30pm, on the street level of H Street Country Club. Tournament participants will compete not only against one another but also against the clock for the grand prize. Spectators can enjoy the tournament competition, fun & games, dining, drinks, televised sports, and shop or H Street NE capsule collection. All of the tournament fees, as well as a portion of the sales from the CHRiS CARDi pop-up shop will be donated to the GrantEd Foundation.
Jenga Tournament limited to 16 participants, we encourage early registration if you want to compete. Tournament registration fee required to be eligible for tournament participation and prize(s). Tournament rules will be emailed, posted on our website blog (www.chriscardi.com), and available at check-in the day of the event. Spectators are also welcome to donate, as every little bit helps.
The tournament will consist of 3-4 rounds based on total number of competitors. Rounds are titled as such, general competition (if needed), preliminary, semi-final, and final championship round.
There will be a max of 16 seeds in competition. In the event of having an odd number of competitors in any round, the first name drawn at random will receive a bye for that round of the tournament. Any sequential rounds resulting in an odd number of competitors will be dealt with in the same manner.
Player match ups will be selected at random and announced at time of competition.
The general competition, preliminary rounds, and semi-finals will have a block clock. The block clock will give competitors 35 seconds to select, pull, and place a block. The clock resets for the opponent as soon at the pulled block is placed. Violation of the block clock results in an immediate forfeiture.
There will be no block clock for the final championship round.
