Heartland Holidays Always Include Giving and Receiving

Heartland Holidays Always Include Giving and Receiving

Friday, December 22, 2017/Categories: Heartland Bank

The holidays at Heartland Bank have always been an inspirational time, allowing the bank to annually honor its associates. On Saturday, December 9, the Heartland Bank family gathered at Copius, in downtown Columbus, to celebrate the season and contribute to a successful new year for many local charities by donating during the 21st annual Silent Auction.

The associates receive a nostalgic dinnertime spread, complete with turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and desert - an annual favorite dating back to the request of the bank’s founder, Tiney McComb - and live music after dinner. The associates in turn embrace their “giving” side with the opportunity to bid on silent auction items collected as donations by the Heartland Holiday Party Committee. Fourteen local charities, suggested by associates of each branch office, receive a portion of the proceeds from the silent auction. In 2017, thanks to the generosity of local businesses, clients and Heartland associates, $8,250.00 was raised this year with over $85,000 donated since 1996 when the auction was added as a feature of the annual party.  

Central Ohio’s community bank is proud to continue the tradition each holiday season of giving back to the communities we serve.  The charities supported this year are listed below. If you’re interested in supporting any of them, please feel free to visit their websites for more information.
