City Bank to Award Cash to Lubbock Non-Profits

The shaky economy has nonprofit organizations across the nation concerned about raising money for 2009.  But now, more than one-hundred area nonprofits are looking forward to a chance to win $10,000.  City Bank launched the first ever community rewards program Wednesday with a kickoff luncheon. A total of $50,000 will be awarded with five local charities receiving $10,000 each during the week of Christmas.  

"This is a critical time of year as you well know for a lot of non-profits. For many of them this is their peak season as far as the services they provide. The goods they provide, you know: food, shelter, clothing, a Christmas gift. You know those kinds of things," said Norval Pollard, City Bank Vice President for Business Development. "We want to help with some money but we also want to build awareness and get everybody thinking about, you know, what's going on in our community in this sector and get them rallying around their favorite non-profits."  

Each person is eligible to vote once daily starting October 26th until December 21st. The five winners will be announced to the public on Christmas.
