$5,000 Half Court Shot Winner in Abbotsford December 11, 2018

The Forward Bank $5,000 Half Court Shot finds success in Abbotsford!

All attendees of the Abbotsford versus Pittsville basketball game on Thursday, December 6th were given a free ticket by the Forward Bank team on their way into the game. At half-time a ticket was drawn at random and Adam Seefluth was given two attempts to make the shot from half court, but he would only need one.

The crowd cheered as Seefluth effortlessly threw up his first shot and the ball “swished” through the net! He will be receiving a check from Forward Bank for $2,500 and the Abbotsford Athletic program will receive a check for $2,500 as well. One shot makes two winners in Abbotsford!
