Students can win with Merchants Bank Money Ball in Rushford

RUSHFORD, Minn. – Area students will have a chance to win some money with Money Ball from Merchants Bank. The first chance comes during halftime of the Rushford boys basketball game against Lanesboro, Friday, December 5.

Three participants, 5th grade and under, will be drawn randomly to participate at halftime. Participants will earn $5 if they make a lay-up. Those making the lay-up qualify to take a free throw, earning $10 for a made shot. A made free throw qualifies the participant to take a 3-point shot and the chance to win another $25 with a made shot.

Another three student participants, 6th grade and over, will also be drawn randomly and have a chance to win at Money Ball. Participants will earn $10 for a made free throw and qualify for a chance to make a 3-pointer and earn another $25. If the participant makes the 3-pointer, then the participant will have the chance to make a half-court shot and earn $100.

At the end of the halftime festivities, Merchants will also donate an amount equal to the total student payout to the Rushford-Peterson Booster Club. If no shots are made during halftime, Merchants Bank will donate $100 to the Rushford-Peterson Booster Club.

“It’s great fun for the students and a great way to donate to the booster club,” said Kari Johnson of Merchants Bank.

Merchants Bank Money Ball will also be held at Rushford girls basketball games on December 18 and January 16, and at the boys basketball game on February 13.

Merchants Bank has 21 locations, including Minnesota locations in Rushford, Lanesboro, Winona, St. Charles, Goodview, Rochester, Caledonia, La Crescent, Spring Grove, Cannon Falls, Red Wing, Hampton, and the southern Twin Cities metropolitan suburbs of Apple Valley, Cottage Grove, Hastings, Lakeville and Rosemount. Merchants has Wisconsin locations in Eau Claire and Onalaska. Merchants Bank was founded in 1875. All banks are FDIC members. Merchants Capital, the company’s leasing arm, is based in the Twin Cities.
