Forward Bank to Hold $5,000 Touchdown Throw at Marshfield Tigers Game

Forward Bank will be sponsoring a $5,000 Touchdown Throw on Oct. 18 at the Marshfield Tigers football game.

Any fan in attendance that evening to cheer on the Tigers will be eligible to attempt the $5,000 touchdown throw into a 32-gallon barrel sitting on the goal line of the end zone. The lucky participant will be selected at random from the crowd and receive two attempts from the 15-yard line.

If successful, the passer will receive $2,500 and $2,500 will be donated to the athletic program on their behalf. Even if the throw is missed, Forward Bank will make a $250 donation to the athletic program. There is no cost to participate.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with our school athletic programs and support our student athletes with this unique donation opportunity,” commented Megan Rosandich, Office Manager at Forward Bank in Marshfield. “By moving the barrel to the front of the end zone, which makes the throw about 10 yards closer than last year and providing two chances to make the throw, we’re hoping to increase the odds of awarding the grand prize. We’re hoping to have our first winner in Marshfield!”
