Marion County Bank’s halftime entertainment at the Pella vs. Pella Christian basketball games earns the schools a $6,275 donation from Marion County Bank.
Students from both schools worked together in the event by shooting layups, free throws, three pointers and half court shots to earn a donation for the schools from Marion County Bank.
A shootout donation of $3,175 was won at the December 6 game and a $3,100 donation was won at the January 25 game. These winnings will be split evenly between the schools and are earmarked for student activities. Marion County Bank thanks the 16 students for participating in the halftime event.
Since 2007, $113,450 has been given to Pella Community High and Pella Christian High from Marion County Bank during the halftime events.
