RACINE – For 22 years the Home National Bank has been sponsoring a family night at local basketball games and Tuesday night, they once again offered fans free entrance and the opportunity to win some cash.
The Southern Tornadoes played against the Meigs Marauders in a back and forth battle for the win.
During half time of the freshman game Home National Bank introduced a new competition to the fans. Five contestants were randomly selected to join representative from Racine Home National Bank on the court. Each contestant had a basketball and had to race to make a basket first. Once their basket was made they raced back to the HNB$ pads placed on the court. The last contestant to shoot was out (only four spots and five people). This played out until there was only one contestant left. Our winner walked away with $20 and the others received five dollars each.
During half time of the junior varsity game the Skill-Shot Challenge was played. Six contestants were drawn from the tickets they received while entering the game. Gracie Hill was the winner and walked away with $50. The other five contestants walked away with $10 each.
During the half of the Varsity game they played the “famous Dash for Cash.” Seven tickets were drawn and the contestants lined up at the end of the court. Bank employees spread $300 on the court floor. Contestants had 30 seconds to crawl on their hands and knees to collect as much cash as they could. What they collected, they got to take home. Contestant, Larissa Petrie, took home $67, Dalton Creamens $53, Brandon Johnson $41, Brandon Laudermilt $26, Corey Layne $25, Katy Cox $24 and Samantha Michael $15.
The Home National Bank will be hosting two more Family Nights at local basketball games. The next HNB Family Night will be January 20 at Meigs High School and there will be another on January 24 at Eastern High School.
