Union Bank announces winners of Community Choice Challenge
Union Bank has announced the three winners of the 2012 Community Choice Challenge, and the list features some familiar faces.
The challenge allowed area residents to vote online or at the bank for three of 10 area nonprofit organizations to receive a donation of up to $5,000. The top vote-getter receiving the $5,000 grant was Operation WildLife, and Sunflower House came in second place to receive $3,000. The two organizations won the second- and third-place awards in last year’s challenge.
This year’s third-place winner, receiving $2,000, was Bonner Springs Youth Football & Cheerleading.
Once an organization receives first place, it is not eligible to win a prize the following year. Last year’s first-place winner was Boy Scouts of America/Camp Naish.
Other organizations that were included in the challenge were The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame; Bonner Springs Rotary Scholarship Foundation; Bonner Springs YMCA; Edwardsville Kiwanis Scholarship Foundation; Tiblow Transit; Vaughn-Trent Community Services; and the Wyandotte County Museum.
