Reaffirming their commitment to community and education, Bank of Idaho has announced that it will bring its annual Swing for the Green Charity Golf Tournament Series to Boise. The event will take place Sept. 15 and 16 at Banbury Golf Club in Eagle, and proceeds from the tournament will benefit College of Western Idaho (CWI).
“We’re really excited to bring our golf tournament series to the Boise area,” said Bank of Idaho President and CEO, Jeff Newgard. “This event is a natural extension of what we’ve done on the east side of the state where we’ve been able to have a lot of fun make some substantial contributions to higher education.”
Bank of Idaho established the Swing for the Green tournament series in 2018, and over the first four years has contributed nearly $100,000 to the College of Eastern Idaho and Idaho State University.
The Boise event is the third in the series, following tournaments in Idaho Falls in June and Pocatello in August. Along with the 25-team tournament, the event will feature Ladies Professional Golf Association athletes, a derby auction with Korn Ferry Tour professionals, a shopping experience and custom player kits. A pre-tournament party featuring a four-course dinner, a wine tasting, signature cocktails, and live musical entertainment will take place the evening of Thursday, Sept. 15.
“We’re excited that Bank of Idaho has chosen to partner with us,” said CWI Foundation, Director Mike Jensen. “For a number of our students, this funding could mean the difference between getting a higher education and entering the job market without potential student loan debt.”
For 37 years, Bank of Idaho has been a financial fixture in the eastern Idaho community and has expanded to include 19 locations across southern Idaho and eastern Washington.
