Grand Mountain Bank Sponsors 6th Annual Food Bank Benefit

A local tradition continues this year with the annual Grand Mountain Bank Golf Tournament. Now in its sixth year, the tournament to benefit the five church food banks in Grand County will be held on Friday, Sept. 10 at the Grand Lake Golf Course. The shotgun start for this scramble tournament will be at 1:30 p.m.

“With the continued downturn of the economy and the high unemployment in Grand County, we need to continue to help those who are struggling to feed their families,” said Grand Mountain Bank Chairman John Selman. Since its inception in 2004, the tournament has raised over $45,000, with the five local food banks receiving more than $9,000 each to support their efforts to help the less fortunate in Grand County.

“As Community Bankers, we see first-hand every day the struggles of many in our local community to make ends meet. And, as the only community-owned bank in Grand County, Grand Mountain Bank takes seriously our responsibility to help serve the social and community interests of our local citizens,” said Bank President Frank DeLay “This golf tournament is one of the primary ways we fulfill that responsibility.”

This year’s Food Bank Benefit Golf Tournament committee members include Lorie Wheeler, Stan Meyer, Tim Thorpe, Eric Anderson, Frank and Kristie DeLay, Mark Lund and John Selman.
