First Community Bank employees came together again this year to benefit White River Health System Foundation’s “Paint the Town Pink” fundraising efforts for breast cancer awareness month. This is a cause that is nationally recognized every October, with a goal to raise funds for mammography and build awareness around breast cancer screening and detection.
“We are honored to align ourselves with White River Health System Foundation’s “Paint the Town Pink” efforts and do what we can to make a difference in the lives of members of the communities where we work and live,” said Boris Dover, president and chief operating officer at First Community Bank. “This year our employees raised $3,625, and First Community has matched that amount for a grand total of $7,250 to present to the foundation.”
The First Community Bank “Paint the Town Pink” committee consists of the following employees: Justin Taylor, Carrie Price, Pat Rutherford, Janie Starnes, Angela Connell, Andrew Lane, Lauren Stott, Eva Henriksen, Danita High, Samantha Buie, Wendy Hurt, Nichole Showalter, Mary Henderson, Mackenzie Reynolds, Ronicia Conyers, Rachael Fisher, Kaitlyn Henderson, and Christina Maple.
In addition to employee donations, the First Community Bank “Paint the Town Pink” committee held several events to raise funds for the cause throughout October, including the following:
• Blue jean Fridays
• Pink ribbon sales
• “Cupcake for the Cure’ bake sale
• Pink pumpkin decorating contest
