$5K half-court shot offered at Dec. 5 Colby BB game

Forward Bank will be sponsoring a $5,000 half court shot during the Dec. 5 Colby Hornets basketball game.

Each fan in attendance that evening to cheer on the Colby Hornets will be eligible to attempt the $5,000 half court shot. The lucky shooter will have two attempts to make the shot from the half court line.

If successful, the shooter will receive $2,500 and $2,500 will be donated to the school’s athletic program on their behalf. Even if the throw is missed, Forward Bank will make a $250 donation to the athletic program.

There is no cost to participate.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with our local school athletic program and support our student athletes with this unique donation opportunity,” commented Vicky Fischer, Colby office manager. “I encourage everyone to pack the stands in support of the Hornets and for a chance to make a $5,000 half-court shot. We hope to have our first winner in Colby this year!”

Come support your Colby Hornets on December 5th and you could have the opportunity to shoot a $5,000 half court shot!
