Bank sponsors golf tournament to benefit food banks

The 5th annual Grand Mountain Bank Golf Tournament to benefit the five church food banks in Grand County will take place Friday, Sept. 11, at the Grand Lake Golf Course. The shotgun start for this scramble tournament will be at 1 p.m.

Grand Mountain Bank Chairman John Selman said the success of this charity golf tournament is critical this year because of the economic downturn and the need to help those among us who are struggling to pay the higher costs of groceries and gasoline.

Since its inception in 2004, the tournament has raised more than $35,000 with the five local food banks having received over $7,000 each to support their efforts to help the less fortunate in Grand County. Bank President Frank DeLay said âa‚¬Å”that as the only community-owned bank in Grand County, Grand Mountain Bank has the responsibility of dedicating itself to serving the social and community interest of local citizens. This golf tournament is one of the primary ways we fulfill that responsibility.âa‚¬ï¿1/2

The officers, directors and employees of Grand Mountain Bank appreciate the support of the tournament sponsors, players and donors for their efforts in making this effort a success.
