Forward Financial Bank is sponsoring a $5,000 Half-Court Shot at the January 8, 2017 Columbus Dons basketball game.

Any fan in attendance that evening to cheer on the Columbus Dons will be eligible to make the $5,000 half-court shot attempt. The lucky shooter will be selected at random from the crowd and 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 athletic program on their behalf.

“After having a successful shot last year (in Greenwood), we are even more excited to continue this contest in our local communities and support our student athletic programs,” commented Megan Davis-Rosandich, Marshfield Office Manager. “I encourage everyone to pack the stands in support of the Dons and for a chance to make a $5,000 half-court shot. We hope to have our first winner in Marshfield this year!”
