Grand Lake Golf Course hosts tournament to benefit food banks

The 4th Annual Grand Mountain Bank Golf Tournament to benefit the five church food banks in Grand County will be played at the Grand Lake Golf Course on Friday.

Golfers will play a scramble tournament with the shotgun start at 1:30 p.m.

The goal of the tournament is to help the less fortunate in the community. Grand Mountain Bank Chairman John Selman said the success of the charity tournament is “critical this year due to the economic downturn and the need to help those among us who are struggling to pay the higher costs of groceries and gasoline.”

Over the past three years, the tournament has raised more than $25,000 with the five local food banks receiving $5,000 each to support their efforts. Grand Mountain Bank has organized and sponsored the event since its inception in 2004.

“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,” said bank President Frank DeLay. “This golf tournament is one of the primary ways we fulfill that responsibility.”

To register for this charity event, golfers can stop by any of the five Grand Mountain Bank locations in Grand County. The cost is $100, which includes green fees, cart, a sleeve of golf balls, a cap and a meal after the tournament.
