First Clover Leaf Bank Green Team, Edwardsville, IL, August 28, 2014 – The First Clover Leaf Bank Green Team met the ALS Ice Bucket challenge with great enthusiasm by raising over $1500 and performing an ice bucket challenge to remember.
The Green Team’s mission is to support and give back to local not-for-profit groups. It was not a surprise that when the bank’s executive management team challenged the Green Team to raise $500, they went above and beyond to raise $1300 for a total donation of $1550. Along with money the Green Team raised, management had agreed to donate an additional $250.
To complete the challenge, an ice bucket challenge of epic proportions was orchestrated. Keller Construction agreed to lend a front loader holding over 300 gallons of water and ice to deliver an ice bucket challenge that the Green Team members and bank management won’t forget anytime soon. To add icing on the cake, any Green Team member that donated $20 was entered into a drawing to be able to select a Sr. management team member to receive a bonus bucket of ice cold water. Sharon Leischenring, the winning team member, selected Chad Abernathy to receive that bonus bucket of ice water.
The Green Team and First Clover Leaf Bank management are proud to support ALS and its research mission. President and CEO Dave Kuhl said, “Last week when I challenged the Green Team to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS and to raise $500, I never dreamed they would raise over $1,300 in such a short time. Our bank and our communities are blessed to have a group of caring, generous individuals like the Green Team who give enthusiastically of their time and resources to great causes.”
