Golf marathon benefits kids
Centennial Bank is asking serious golfers how many holes of golf they could squeeze into one day.
The bank will sponsor the first-ever Florida Keys Golf Marathon to benefit the Take Stock in Children scholarship program.
The event takes place from dawn to dusk on Jan. 20, with an awards banquet and cookout to follow. The golf marathon is open to golfers 16 and older and includes a grand prize for the most money raised by an individual. The prize is a four-night stay for two in Curacao, including lodging and airfare. The grand prize for the most holes played is a set of $1,500 golf clubs.
Golfer packets are available at all Centennial Bank branches and at the Sombrero Country Club. For information about the golf marathon, call Erik Zinn 305-743-3433. For event information not related to golf play, call Teresa Condas at 305-676-3002.
Bank raises hundreds for cancer
First State Bank of the Florida Keys' Marathon Relay for Life team raised $350 for the American Cancer Society during its Thanksgiving fundraiser.
During the Thanksgiving holiday, the First State Bank Marathon Relay for Life team posted a paper turkey in the branch for customers and non-customers to make donations to add feathers to "Tom the Turkey." Sponsors were invited to display their name or business name on the feathers.
First State Bank Relay teams Keyswide raise money annually for the event through bachelor and bachelorette auctions, bake sales, yard sales, car washes and special employee events.
Relay for Life is an overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for the American Cancer Society.
