Clarksville area bankers are challenging each other to raise the most funds to support Big Brothers Big Sisters as it kicks off its 32nd Annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake Monday, March 2,
2015 at the Pinnacle Family Entertainment Center.

Last year the Banker’s Challenge collected over $41,000 for the local charity with ten of Clarksville area banks participating. F&M Bank raised over $15,000 to win the challenge with Legends Bank coming in a close second raising close to $14,000 in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Clarksville’s mentoring programs.
