ELMHURST – The Brian E. Wagner Scholarship Fund will host its eighth annual Bags for Wags bean bag tournament from 5 to 10 p.m. Feb. 3 at Visitation Catholic School’s Valentino Center Gym, 851 South York St., Elmhurst.

People over the age of 16 are welcome to register for the competition. All teams can compete in both rounds: open play and single elimination. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top teams, according to a Brian E. Wagner Scholarship Fund news release. Teams are encouraged to sign up in advance. On-site registration will be available on the day of the tournament if the event has not yet sold out.

Tickets to watch the tournament are $10 for people 16 and older and $5 for children. Mama Maria’s pizza will be served, and door prizes, including merchandise from local Elmhurst businesses, will be raffled to winners, according to the release.

Proceeds will benefit the fund’s annual college scholarship. Last year’s event raised nearly $10,000, which was used toward the tuition costs for the scholarship recipients during their first college semester, the release stated. Each year, young leaders who emulate the leadership qualities of Brian Edwin Wagner are granted the award, the release stated. Wagner died when he was 16 in a car accident during his junior year at York Community High School, according to the release.
