PELHAM, GA (WALB) -

A regional corn hole tournament is helping one Southwest Georgia city bring life and a new look to their downtown area.  

The City of Pelham held the Southwest American Cornhole League (ACL) Regional tournament to raise funds to revitalize their downtown. 

Nearly 15 teams, including professional players, paid to compete in three divisions.

Organizers said the fundraiser will help the city remodel downtown businesses curb appeal, install lights, decorative banners, and fund scholarships for students.

"The main street program is responsible for the economic development and the historic preservation and the beautification of downtown Pelham. And so we have many projects that we are wanting to put on to help with those causes in downtown Pelham," Alyssa Blakely, Pelham Main Street Manager.

Pelham has a series of events to bring more curb appeal to all businesses downtown. 

They are raising money now for grants to help already established businesses with face lifts. 

The city's next event will be a car show on May 5th.
