(MADISON, WI) – September 14, 2011 - First Business Bank announces the first ever First Business Invitational for Charity golf event, where local business people will compete for a local charity of their choice. The event is scheduled for September 21 at Hawks Landing.
"There are lots of charity golf tournaments out there, but this is the only "winner takes all" charity golf event of its kind in the Madison area," says Mark Meloy, President and CEO of First Business Bank. "It’s really designed for business leaders who are supportive of local charities who have a drive to win and those who thrive on pressure."
The competitive event is designed with two person teams competing in a best ball format. Each two-some selects one local charity for which they will play. First Business Bank has committed to covering 100 percent of the event costs, which means the winning team will win over $35,000 for their chosen local charity.
"These business leaders are playing purely for sport with no personal gain other than the satisfaction of serving a local charity. It has the potential to have a major impact for one fortunate charity," says Meloy.
Golfers and spectators can follow the progress on the course through an online leader board accessible via a computer or smart phone on the day of the event.
First Business is proud to be the originator of this event and participation is limited to friends of First Business. Rain date is October 5.
