The Cobb Cup is a trophy presented to the provider company that contributes the most money to Argentum’s Silver PAC each year.
Granger Cobb Cup for Excellence in Political Action
The Cobb Cup is named after the late Granger Cobb for his longtime dedication to advocating on behalf of our industry and the residents that we serve. The name of the winner is engraved on the trophy, much like hockey’s Stanley Cup, and the trophy is passed around annually from winner to winner to take back to their offices to display. Each year, the new winner has their company’s name engraved on the trophy and they will remain in possession of the trophy so long as they are Silver PAC’s highest contributing company. The first ever winner in 2015 was Silverado, which raised $28,700 for Silver PAC.
