How The First Business Bank Charity Golf Invitational Makes A Difference

Each year, the First Business Bank Charity Golf Invitational of Madison raises tens of thousands of dollars to support local charities and nonprofits. In years past, players have raised money for Dane County Humane Society, Impact Seven, Middleton Outreach Ministry, and Garding Against Cancer, to name a few.

Executive directors at these critical organizations often attend the event in person, hoping to obtain much-needed support for their vital mission-centered activities.

In 2019, Dane County Humane Society received $20,000.
