It’s that time of the year again and Heartland Bank is in the giving spirit! On Saturday, December 14, the Heartland family will gather for the annual Holiday Party and celebrate the 17th annual Silent Auction with proceeds benefitting several community food banks and local charities.
This year, ten area organizations will benefit from the generosity of Heartland Bank employees bidding on more than 100 items donated to the holiday celebration. Central Ohio’s community bank continues the tradition of giving back to the communities that we serve.
Each Heartland Bank office selected a charitable organization in their market to receive a portion of the proceeds from the Silent Auction. Through the generosity and teamwork of clients, employees and area businesses, over $6,000 was raised at last year’s party and over $60,000 since the fundraising component of the Holiday Party began in 1996. We’re looking forward to a record breaking Silent Auction this Saturday!
If you’d like to help support one of these outstanding organizations, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Give us a call at 614-259-5835 this week and we’ll be happy to add your contribution to our growing list of auction items.
