Cookin’ for a Cause event raises $1,537 for the Bremer-Butler Crisis Fund

Posted on: in [ General ]

State Bank’s Waverly office held a “Cookin’ for a Cause” event on Friday, July 22nd to support the Bremer-Butler Crisis Fund.  Bank staff served burgers and hot dogs to approximately 220 people raising $1,037, plus the Bank’s match for a total contribution of $1,537 toward the Bremer-Butler Crisis Fund.

“On behalf of the Waverly Police Department and the new Bremer-Butler crisis fund, I would like to say thank you to State Bank for supplying everything needed to help raise some extra money for this fund.  It is a true blessing to be a part of such a great community that reaches out to those less fortunate than ourselves.  With this new fund we are now able to reach more people for a longer period of time verses just having the Salvation Army funds which typically run out by this time each year.  A huge thanks to the employees of State Bank and to the community members that came out in support,” Officer Paul Leisinger.

To date, the total amount contributed as a result from State Bank’s “Cookin’ for a Cause” (CFAC) event series is over $33,000 to eighteen local charities across each of the markets served by the bank.  Along with the Bremer-Butler Crisis Fund, State Bank’s CFAC events have helped to raise funds for Cedar Valley Hospice and The Larrabee Center.

“Here at State Bank we’re built on a foundation of giving back to the communities that have helped us achieve success,” said Bill Roths, Vice President at State Bank.  “But we know this event series has been a community effort and we truly appreciate the generosity we see from local supporters!  We’re proud to support such a worthy cause this year, the Bremer-Butler Crisis Fund.”

Along with State Bank’s recent “Cookin’ for a Cause” event in Waverly, they also will hold events in Calmar, Dike, Janesville and New Hampton throughout the summer.
