Forward Bank to sponsor Spencer $5K touchdown throw
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Forward Bank will sponsor a $5,000 Touchdown Throw on Sept. 6 at the Spencer/Columbus Rocket football game.
Any fan in attendance that evening to cheer on the Rockets will be eligible to attempt the $5,000 touchdown throw into a 32-gallon barrel sitting on the goal line of the end zone. The lucky participant will be selected at random from the crowd and receive two attempts from the 15-yard line. If successful, the passer will receive $2,500 and $2,500 will be donated to the 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 school athletic programs and support our student athletes with this unique donation opportunity,” Forward Office Manager Megan Rosandich said. “By moving the barrel to the front of the end zone, which makes the throw about 10 yards closer than last year and providing two chances to make the throw, we’re hoping to increase the odds of awarding the grand prize. We’re hoping to have our first winner in Marshfield!”
