There’s no better way to celebrate our anniversary than by giving back to the community that has trusted and supported us for four decades.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 30, 2014
Continental National Bank, South Florida’s leader in Community Banking, is celebrating 40 years of outstanding service by leading over four dozen retailers in raising funds in benefit of Amigos For Kids. All proceeds raised through the Bank’s $40K for 40 years fundraiser will go to organization programs that promote wellness for local children and families in need. Until November 22, residents can make donations at Continental National Bank locations, participating retail partners, or online via ContinentalBank.com/AmigosForKids.
Established in 1974 as Miami’s first Cuban-American owned national bank, Continental National Bank prides itself with its continuous commitment to the community. Throughout its 40 years of service, the Bank has supported a vast number of local charities and civic organizations, placing special interest in safeguarding a prosperous future for the leaders of tomorrow. Through their $40K for 40 Years fundraiser, Continental National Bank joins Amigos For Kids in building awareness about child abuse, a grave and abiding problem that negatively affects the lives of so many children and families residing in South Florida.
According to National statistics, approximately four children die every day as a result of abuse and neglect. Since 1991, Amigos For Kids has instituted programs that alleviate and prevent child abuse, helping over 25,000 at-risks children in South Florida. Continental National Bank is proud to support their important cause, and invites Miami residents to make a difference by donating online, at any of their branch locations, or at participating retail partners.
“I’m so proud to be a part of the Continental National Bank family,” said Jacqueline Dascal Chariff, Chairman, Continental National Bank. “There’s no better way to celebrate our anniversary than by giving back to the community that has trusted and supported us for four decades. We’d like to invite our friends to participate in the $40K for 40 years fundraiser; together we can make a difference for children in need.”
“Amigos For Kids is grateful to count with the support of Continental National Bank and its retail partners,” said Rosa Maria Plasencia, Amigos For Kids President and CEO. “The $40K for 40 Years fundraising effort allows us the invaluable opportunity to continue educating the community and advancing our mission. We extend our sincerest gratitude for their support in this important effort, and congratulate them for 40 years of outstanding service.”
