YELLVILLE, Ark. – Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas and Southeast Missouri is now accepting letters of request from area non-profit organizations for the 2015 Charity of the Year (CY) program. The organizations selected by the committee of associates will benefit from the funds raised through the annual Arvest Charity Golf Tournament. Charitable organizations in Baxter, Boone and Marion counties in Arkansas and Howell County, Missouri are encouraged to apply. This year marks the 19th annual golf tournament. 

The committee will choose up to three charities to be the recipients of all tournament proceeds. Non-profit organizations within the four county area are encouraged to apply to become “Charity of the Year.” Final selection is based on past, present and future financial needs, along with other criteria. To qualify, the charity must be a designated IRS 501(c)(3) organization and must submit a letter to the committee explaining why they believe that their organization should be selected. 

“We are so excited for our annual Charity of the Year program. We’re very proud of the program and excited to help out a new local non-profit. It is something we are really proud of,” said Tiffany Watkins, marketing director for Arvest. “In 2014, we raised more than $16,000 which benefited three local non-profit organizations. 

Watkins added, “Last year the Arvest Charity Golf Tournament raised more money than ever before, and it is the support we receive from the community that makes it possible for us to give to these wonderful organizations that provide assistance to our neighbors and friends. We hope to raise even more money this year for local aid.”
