Sponsor Sign-Ups Booming For Kuttawa Cannonball Run

With almost two full months remaining before the first boat leaves Kuttawa Harbor Marina in Kentucky, the host venue for the eighth annual Kuttawa Cannonball Run, 13 sponsors have stepped up to help back the event. And sponsor registration, as well as general registration, is still open.

Jeff Hoefling, who organizes the three-day affair with friends Terry Martin and Stephen Miles, believes this year’s already strong sponsor draw is a result of the May 31-June 1 event’s 501c3 not-for-profit status.

“In the past, our sponsors and the individuals that donated the items for our charity auction were unable to take the write-off for charitable contributions,” Hoefling explained. “As of January 1, 2024, we are now an official not-for-profit corporation, which allows us to provide a donation receipt to all our sponsors and contributors.

“We not only want to help our community at the lake, but we also want to help our sponsors and the individuals that make all this possible,” he added.

Sponsors so far include:

Chris Wagner, Lake Ozark, Mo.—$1,000
Mark Knight, Benton, Ill.—$1,000
Bob and Rebecca Mayes, Reed, Ky.—$1,000
Jonah and Chaddie Becher, Evansville, Ind.—$1,000
Chad Combs, Goodlettsville, Tenn.—$1,000
Josh Emmick, Owensboro, Ky.—$3,000
Donnie and Cara MacLeod, Evansville, Ind.—$5,000
Mike Royster, Henderson, Ky.—$1,000
Tom Austin, Central City, Ky.—$1,000
Brian and Jessica Penn, Marion, Ky.—$1,000
Brandon Galbraith, Clay, Ky.—$1,000
Tony Wells, Evansville, Ind.—$1,250
Josh Warner, Nashville—$1,000

Representing 13 states, more than 60 participants have registered for the 2024 Kuttawa event.
