Halftime contests return for winter season
For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Forward Bank, Insurance and Investment Services will be sponsoring a $5,000 Half Court Shot at 13 local basketball games and a $5,000 Shot on Goal at three local hockey games this winter.
Each fan attending a participating high school basketball game will be eligible to attempt the half court shot. The participant will be selected at random from the crowd and will have two attempts to make the shot. If successful, the shooter will receive $2,500 and $2,500 will be donated to the athletic program on their behalf. There is no cost to participate.
Those attending the hockey games will have a similar opportunity to make a shot on goal. The participant will be randomly selected and have two attempts from the center line to pass the puck through a 20-inch cutout in a banner covering the goal. Even if the shot is not made, a donation of $250 will be made to the school athletic program.
