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.
The event will begin at 5 p.m. at The Pinnacle Family Entertainment Center with the announcement of the winner at 6:00 p.m. This year’s event has eleven local banks and over 50 teams competing against each other for bragging rights and the coveted purple bowling pin to display at their bank. F&M Bank, Altra Federal Credit Union, Cumberland Bank and Trust, Fairway Mortgage Company, Fort Campbell Federal Credit Union, Heritage Bank, Navy Federal Credit Union, PenFed Credit Union, Planter’s Bank, Regions Bank, and U.S. Bank are all participating this year.
Board President Matthew Thomas is “thrilled with the number of banks and teams participating this year and would like to express his gratitude for all the support the banking community has extended to Big Brothers Big Sisters going into the 8th year of the Banker’s Challenge.”
Bowl for Kids’ Sake in Clarksville will continue on Saturday March 7, 2015 with the Main Event, also being hosted by the Pinnacle. Event planners hope to raise $70,000 to support
the agency’s mentoring programs.
