On September 24th, 2016 Republic Bank sponsored a golf outing fundraiser and concert that collected over $105,000 for childen battling illness in Lithuania.
The event was organized through the Chicagoland Lithuanian Rotary Club, and held at the Old Oaks Country Club in Homer Glen, IL. Republic Bank Vice President Renata Kanopka, the organization’s Treasurer, orchestrated the sales of event and raffle tickets, and organized games and other activities that kept the attendees entertained throughout the day. The festivities culminated with a concert by popular Lithuanian singer Arina Borunova.
This was the 8th Annual Chicagoland Lithuanian Rotary Club golf event. Over 240 participants attended the event and contributed through foursome purchases and auction bids.
“This event continues to be more and more successful every year. We doubled the amount of attendees this year which helped us raise funds. The $105,000 raised is nearly double the funds from last year. This will allow us to provide so much more for the children,” shared Renata Kanopka.
In addition to the monetary donation provided by Republic Bank as the main sponsor, the bank also provided auction items and gift bags to all participants.
