River City Bank’s biennial client appreciation event took place in the lush green space located right behind their corporate offices. The event celebrates bank clients and recognizes a selected non-profit organization. Steve Fleming, RCB President & CEO, kicked off the evening by thanking all in attendance and recognizing this year’s charity of choice, the Sacramento Tree Foundation, by presenting them a check for $11,894.
During the summer months, RCB employees raised funds by initiating a series of fundraising activities. Events included a bake sale, farmer’s market, and an event deemed the “Great Banker Bake-Off,” as well as internal competitions between teams in the bank’s various offices and branch locations. River City Bank took the amount raised and matched it.
The donation will be used to bolster the expansion of the foundation’s NeighborWoods Program, which seeks to plant approximately one million trees in under-resourced and under-canopied neighborhoods throughout the six-county Sacramento region. Funds may also be directed toward the organization’s innovative certification program, which aims to ensure that tree canopy considerations be incorporated into all new building developments.
RCB clients and employees enjoyed a delicious dinner provided by the Fat Family Restaurant Group, including their famous banana cream pie, and pear cider by The Elliot Family’s Delta Island Cider Company. Relles Florist provided beautiful floral arrangements to set the tone of the event. Attendees ended the evening with parting gifts from Elevation Ten Winery and Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates.
