SAHU Vanguard Cornhole Event Showcases Fun and Friendly Competition

Sacramento, CA May 7, 2024 – The Sacramento Association of Health Underwriters (SAHU) recently hosted its annual Vanguard Cornhole event, bringing together 31 teams and 70 attendees for a day of camaraderie and spirited competition.

Held last Thursday, the event highlighted the growing popularity of cornhole as a recreational activity among SAHU members.

The top three teams emerged victorious after a day of intense competition:

  • 1st Place: Danny Langarica (Cal Choice) & Andy Fullerton (Wraith Scarlett Randolph) – Prizes included 2 Giants tickets and a $50 Firehouse gift card.
  • 2nd Place: Brian Coppin (Cal Choice) & David Parker (Cigna + Oscar) – Prizes included a $50 Top Golf gift card and a $25 movie theater gift card.
  • 3rd Place: Enoch Barrios (Covered CA) & Guest – Prizes included a $25 movie theater gift card.

Special recognition goes to Cerrina Jensen, who narrowly missed being the first woman to make it into the top 3. Her performance was commendable and showcased the inclusive nature of SAHU events.

The event also provided a platform for valuable networking opportunities, allowing brokers and general agents to connect in a relaxed setting. Participants enjoyed the friendly yet competitive atmosphere, fostering a sense of community among attendees.

“We’re thrilled with the success of this year’s Vanguard Cornhole event,” said Helen Ornellas, SAHU President. “It was great to see everyone come together for a day of fun and networking.”
