NewBridge Bank, one of the largest community banks in the Piedmont Triad, announced it will host the 17th annual NewBridge Bank Invitational Jamboree including a cheerleading competition and football scrimmages among 24 Triad high schools, August 13 and 14, 2015, respectively.
The NewBridge Bank Invitational Jamboree occurs each year in early August when high school football teams are officially allowed to scrimmage in preparation for the upcoming season. The event raises money for participating schools’ athletic departments within NewBridge Bank’s footprint and includes a premier Cheerleading Competition and three football scrimmaging venues for 24 teams. The NewBridge Bank Invitational Jamboree is the single-largest event and fundraising effort produced by NewBridge Bank each year.
“The NewBridge Bank Invitational Jamboree is the Bank’s most tangible expression of our mission to support the communities we serve,” said Spence H. Broadhurst, senior executive vice president and chief banking officer of NewBridge Bank. “High school sports provide meaningful experiences through which our youth develop character, leadership skills and self-esteem. With 100 percent of the money raised going to participating schools, the Jamboree celebrates and recognizes the vital role high school athletics plays in the Triad.
“Over the last 16 years NewBridge Bank has awarded over $885,000 to public high schools, and we are excited to add another year to this rich tradition. Thanks to the many sponsors, schools, students and fans, the NewBridge Bank Invitational Jamboree has become the official kickoff of high school football season.”
The 2015 NewBridge Bank Jamboree begins on Thursday, August 13 at 7 p.m. with the Cheerleading Competition held at NewBridge Bank Park in Greensboro. On Friday, August 14 high school football fans can catch their favorite football teams in action at three different Triad venues: Rockingham County High School in Wentworth, West Davidson High School in Tyro, and Mount Tabor High School in Winston-Salem. All scrimmages begin at 6 p.m.
