Through the years, Bank of Bolivar/ BOB Community Financial has recognized the value that sporting activities contribute to our communities and has been pleased to support certain sports programs, including:
Bolivar High School Basketball Tourneys
BOB is pleased to be the exclusive annual corporate sponsor of the Bolivar High School girls and boys basketball tournaments held each January. Through the bank's support, BHS is to cover all expenses related to hosting this high quality competition each year.
SBU/Drury "Highway 13 Catfight"
In the heart of BOB country sit two highly-regarded universities whose rich basketball programs have fiercely battled each other for decades. And because BOB has numerous employees with ties to one or the other of these universities, it was only natural that our bank would partner with the SBU Bearcats from Bolivar and the Drury University Panthers from Springfield to make official one of the area's oldest rivalries. And since 2011 this annual event has come to be known as the Bank of Bolivar Highway 13 Catfight.
Each year, the women compete, followed by the men - with each winner laying claim to their own prestigious traveling trophy all meet again the following year.
The Bank of Bolivar Highway 13 Catfight... combining the area's finest in basketball with the area's finest in community banks.
YMCA & Other Youth Sports
As a proud supporter of our area YMCA programs, BOB has been a corporate sponsor, sponsored team shirts and facility signage, supported the Strong Kids and LiveStrong campaigns, and helped with Y events such as Boo Bash.
BOB has even made water and PowerAde available to kids during sporting events on various Free Drink Days and donated to the YMCA through our holiday giving program, BOB's Gift Club.
We encourage you to visit your local YMCA and consider joining or supporting it also.
