GRANBY —A local tradition continues this year with the annual Grand Mountain Bank Golf Tournament. Now in its ninth year, the tournament to benefit the four church food banks and the Mountain Family Center in Grand County will be held at the Grand Elk Golf Club in Granby. The shotgun start for this scramble tournament will be at 1:30 p.m. on Aug. 8.
Grand Mountain Bank Chairman John Selman noted that “even though unemployment in the area has dropped from its mid-recession highs, we need to continue to help those who are struggling to feed their families.”
Since its inception in 2004, the tournament has raised over $70,000 with the local food banks having received over 14,000 each to support their efforts to help the less fortunate in Grand County. Bank President Frank DeLay echoed Chairman Selman’s thoughts: “As Community Bankers, we see firsthand 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. 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 and Ann Wheeler, Stan Meyer and Susan Meyer, Frank and Kristie DeLay, Mark and Janice Lund, Dawn Browne and John and Lois Selman.
To register to participate in this worthwhile event, stop by any of the four Grand Mountain Bank locations in Grand County. The cost to play is $100 for an individual or $400 for a foursome.
This includes green fees, cart, range balls, awards and a meal following the tournament. 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 very worthy cause a success.
