Jenny Saunders, President of FCBank, has announced the winning charities of FCBank’s 10 Fantastic Charities, a contest in which the Bank awarded a total of $10,000 to local non-profit organizations.
Online voters chose Colony Cats & Dogs as the first place winner of a $3,500 cash prize from FCBank. The second place winner of $2,000 is New Vision Dance Company, and third place with a $1,000 prize is awarded to Capriccio Columbus. In addition to these winners, the following organizations each received $500 from FCBank: A Kid Again, Central Ohio Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, Family Mentor Foundation, I Am Boundless, Integrate Columbus, McConnell Arts Center, and National Youth Advocate Program.
“At FCBank, we cultivate a culture of giving back to the community, especially through volunteerism. So on behalf of our entire team that gives so freely of their time and talent, I am proud to present awards to these 10 Fantastic Charities,” Ms. Saunders said. “Likewise, we are thrilled to support Concerts on the Green because it enables the community to come together and celebrate some of our region’s best assets. This year that included ten charities that work on behalf of others every day. We are thrilled and proud to support them.”
Complementing their title sponsorship of Worthington Parks & Recreation’s Concerts on the Green concert series, FCBank kicked-off the contest on May 19 with a three-week nomination period. Individuals voted for their favorite charity on social media to determine the top ten charities which would be eligible to receive prizes. For nearly nine weeks thereafter, voters on the Bank’s Facebook page cast more than 16,000 ballots for their choice of charity to win the top prize.
To be eligible for the contest, non-profits were required to be designated as IRS 501(c)(3) organizations and must serve the Worthington community. Contest rules and regulations are available on FCBank’s website.
