South Central Wisconsin Charity Golf Invitational by First Business Bank

Each year, First Business Bank brings local business professionals together to compete in a golf tournament that benefits their charities of choice.

Show Your Support & Your Competitive Drive

The South Central Wisconsin Charity Golf Invitational by First Business Bank showcases the generosity and competitive spirit of Wisconsin's local business professionals as they compete as two-person teams in a best ball format on behalf of a local charity of their choice.

Each two-person team selects a charity to play for prior to the golf event. Players without a handicap are invited to play but their team will be ineligible to compete on behalf of a charity, however, they will be eligible to win a cash prize for the charity of their choice as part of a blind draw at the reception.

Top-scoring teams win pooled entry fees as donations for the charity they select. First Business Bank is proud to cover 100% of the event costs.
