Wolf River Community Bank has wrapped up a successful first year of the WRCB Field Goal Contest at Hortonville and New London High Schools.
At each varsity home football game, a contestant was drawn randomly from the stands and had the option to kick a 35-yd. field goal with the chance to win $1,000 ($500 to the contestant, $500 to the school district) or an extra point, with the chance to win $100 ($50 to the contestant, $50 to the school district).
The excitement started early in the season at Hortonville High School’s first home game of the year when Jared Deli of Greenville successfully made a 35-yard field goal, winning $500 for himself and $500 for the school district! That excitement continued later in the season when Mike Wisniewski of New London successfully kicked an extra point at New London’s Homecoming game on October 4th, winning $50 for himself and $50 for the school district. Although there was only one successful kick at each school, to wrap up the season, Wolf River Community Bank presented each school with a $500 donation.
Wolf River Community Bank is now ramping up for the WRCB Half Court Shot Contest to take place at two varsity boys’ and two varsity girls’ basketball games in New London, Hortonville and Shiocton, totaling twelve games.
The premise of the contest is similar to that of the Field Goal Contest. A contestant will be drawn randomly from the stands and will be given the option to shoot a half court shot with the chance to win $1,000 ($500 to the contestant, $500 to the school district) or a free throw with the chance to win $100 ($50 to the contestant, $50 to the school district). The bank provides two shot options to present the contestant with a “financial decision”, with the idea that “we can’t help you make your shot, but we can help you with your financial decisions.”
