The Community Bank of Santa Maria drew two more winners on July 8 for its $20,000 charity giveaway.
The bank, which is celebrating 20 years this year, is drawing the names of two charities every month as part of a pledge to donate $20,000 to local non-profits. The bank’s customers submit the charities that go into the drawing, and this month Allan Hancock College Rodeo Boosters and the Santa Maria Philharmonic won $1,000 each.
Previous winners include The Santa Maria Corps of the Salvation Army, the Santa Maria Valley Sportsman’s Association, the Guadalupe Chapter of Vietnam Veterans of America, Shadow’s Fund, Orcutt Academy’s Spartatronicks Robotics Boosters and Hidden Wings.
“We are so proud to be celebrating our 20-year anniversary,” Janet Silveria, the president and CEO of the bank, said in a news release. “We wanted to express our gratitude to our customers by providing support to the non-profits they hold near and dear. In this way, we are also expressing our gratitude to the community for their support. It’s definitely a benefit all the way around, and we could think of no better way to celebrate our 20th anniversary.”
