IDAHO FALLS – Reaffirming their commitment to community and education, Bank of Idaho has announced the annual Swing for the Green Charity Golf Tournament. The event will take place June 24 and June 25 at the Idaho Falls Country Club, after a pandemic-induced hiatus in 2020.

Bank of Idaho led the way in creating the CEI Education Endowment Fund in 2017. At that time, establishing and pledging proceeds from the new golf tournament to be deposited directly to the fund. Each year the endowments have grown, and in 2019 the contribution was just over $25,000. The endowment has a current value of $65,000 with the ambitious goal to get the fund over $100,000 for 2021.

"After last summer's cancellation, we're really excited to get back on track with our work for CEI and the Education Endowment Fund," said Bank of Idaho President and CEO Jeff Newgard. “As we’ve expanded our branches westward, we’re looking into ways to expand and share our endowment success elsewhere — to help other community colleges across the state. And to keep pushing fundraising thresholds here in our hometown, we're adding some new highlights that I think will make this year's tournament our best one yet."

Bolstered by the support of returning major tournament sponsors Teton Wealth Management, Fisher’s Technology and Townsquare Capital, the goal for 2021 is to create an even better experience.

Along with the 25-team tournament, the event will feature LPGA professionals, a derby auction, shopping and customized player kits. A pre-tournament party featuring a four-course dinner, a wine tasting, signature cocktails and live musical entertainment will take place on the Idaho Falls Country Club patio the evening of Thursday, June 24.
