Bradford NATIONAL Bank
BNB Platinum Level Sponsor for Bicentennial
Bradford National Bank has signed on as the platinum level sponsor of Greenville’s Bicentennial celebration in 2015. Bradford is the first business to commit to a sponsorship, taking the exclusive top level for $20,200. Frank Joy, Bradford president, made the announcement at the December Greenville Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours, hosted by the bank.
“Greenville’s Bicentennial will be a wonderful celebration of our heritage and accomplishments, a year forever chronicled in the history of our community,” Joy observed. “The Bradford National Bank, in keeping with our tradition of community service, is very proud to be the platinum level sponsor of the Bicentennial, and we encourage the entire community to rally behind and support this important event.”
John Goldsmith, Bicentennial board president said, “Bradford National Bank, which was founded when Greenville was only 52 years old, is an ideal platinum level sponsor. It is among an elite group of Greenville businesses that have been around for over a century. The beauty of the Bicentennial is bringing together generations of residents and businesses to celebrate our town’s 200th birthday.”
John Coleman, Bicentennial fundraising committee chair added, “We’re delighted to have someone with as much community involvement as Bradford locked into the top sponsorship. We hope that Bradford’s commitment is a springboard for our fundraising campaign.”
There are varying levels of sponsorship, with each receiving a variety of benefits such as gift certificates to the Bicentennial memorabilia store and inclusion on signs and/or banners.
Businesses or individuals interested in sponsoring the Greenville Bicentennial celebration may contact Coleman at (618) 593-5325 or Goldsmith at 664-9272. Preliminary plans call for a New Year’s Eve 2014 First Night observance, a two-day Labor Day 2015 celebration, and a New Year’s Eve 2015 gala to conclude the Bicentennial.
