2018 First Business Charity Golf Invitational – Madison

Save The Date

Mark your calendars – the 2018 First Business Charity Golf Invitational – Madison is scheduled for Wednesday, September 19, 2018!

The First Business Invitational is a forum where local business leaders compete for a local charity of their choice. The event was designed with two-person teams competing in a best-ball format and the top five teams are awarded prize money for the charity of their choice.

This event would not be possible without the support of local businesses and their leaders. First Business is proud to work with such great organizations and covers 100 percent of the event costs. Read more about why we host this event in a blog from President Jim Hartlieb.
