Forward Bank Has First $5,000 Touchdown Throw Winner in Colby September 11, 2019
Forward Bank sponsored a $5,000 Touchdown Throw on August 30th at the Colby Hornets football game and saw it’s first winner!
The lucky participant, Kevin Spindler, was selected at random from the crowd to attempt a 15 yard throw into a 32-gallon barrel sitting on the goal line for a chance to win $2,500 for himself and $2,500 for the school’s athletic program. Kevin’s first throw fell short and knocked into the front of the barrel. With the crowd cheering him on, he adjusted the distance on his second attempt and the ball sailed right into the barrel! Kevin is the first winner of the $5,000 Touchdown Throw since it replaced the field goal kick in 2018. Congratulations to Kevin and the Colby athletic program!
“These types of events encourage our communities to come out and support our student athletes,” commented Vicky Fischer, Office Manager at Forward Bank in Colby. “It is also a unique way for us to connect with our communities while giving back in a fun and exciting way! We’re so happy to have the first winner in Colby!”
