After a year of raising money internally, Branson Bank employees selected the non-profit organization, Together Forever, to be the recipients of Branson Bank’s annual Casual For A Cause donation in the amount of $1,500.
Every Friday, staff members of Branson Bank have the opportunity to dress casually in nice jeans and sneakers in exchange for a $5.00 donation to their Casual For A Cause Fund. As the year progresses, the funds grow and they are set aside specifically to go towards a local Non-Profit effort. The staff nominates and votes on the organization that will benefit from the funds.
“On behalf of the Branson Bank family, we are pleased to present Together Forever with our annual staff donation,” said Bill Jones, President/CEO of Branson Bank. “This donation will allow families affected by cancer to experience our community and to create memories that will last a lifetime.”
Together Forever: A Skyler Sanders Family Foundation is a non-profit organization – 501(c)(3) created in memory and in honor of Skyler Sanders. The family has countless fond memories of Skyler and they cherish each and every one. Each day, young families across the nation and world are given life shattering news that they have cancer, and may never have a chance for fond memories. The goal at Together Forever is to create opportunities for these families to make memories that last a lifetime. Our purpose is to select qualified young families and provide them with an all-expenses-paid vacation in order to give them a break from their normal lives.
