Dig for Cash at Wachusett Mountain With the Pats’ Matt Light
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
For a $25 donation to the Bank’s “Champions for Children” program, visitors can get a lift ticket at any Bay State Savings Bank location for the Mountain which entitles them to ski and snowboard from 4:00 p.m. to midnight. The tickets were donated thanks to the generosity of Wachusett Mountain.
Furthermore, the bank will be burying $5,000.00 worth of glow sticks in the snow. Participants will have 1 minute to dig up as many as they can, and then redeem them for cash from Bay State Savings Bank at the Mountain.
In addition, former New England Patriot Matt Light will be signing autographs from 7- 8 pm. For another $20 donation to “Champions for Children,” people can get an autographed picture and be entered into a drawing to win a Matt Light autographed jersey, helmet or football. The Bank will also be running games with other prizes and give-a-ways throughout the evening.
"At Bay State Savings Bank, we believe that it is our personal responsibility to serve our local communities, not only as a neighborhood bank, but also as a true neighbor," says Diane Giampa of Bay State Savings Bank.
"The Bay State Savings Bank Champions for Children initiative was created in 2004 to recognize and support local organizations and individuals who provide education, mentoring, training, life skills development, or recreational opportunities to the youth of the community. We have raised over $100,000 since the program’s inception, in addition to the grants we provide through our Foundation and the general charitable contributions we make to the community."
All proceeds from the event will go to honor the Bank’s latest “Champion for Children” – Straight Ahead Ministries.
Straight Ahead Ministries is a faith-based, prayer-centered, grassroots-oriented, and local church-based organization that seeks to transform the lives of juvenile offenders using the Gospels as a guide. The organization's ultimate goals are to make every juvenile institution open to ministry and allow every juvenile offender the opportunity to hear the message of the Gospels.
"It is our hope that we can support the Mountain, as well as providing visitors to the Mountain the opportunity to learn a little about Straight Ahead Ministries and have some fun while doing it and maybe, win some money too!," says Giampa.
Bay State Savings Bank with this annual event shows once again its commitment to the community of which it is part.
"Bay State Savings Bank is proud to truly be a member of the community from where we draw our business. It’s all about giving back, and this is just one small way that we are so very proud to do so," Giampa says.
