One Community Bank Hosts Annual Free Community Event: Badger Tailgate
One Community Bank is proud to serve our clients, support our colleagues and invest in our communities. OCB held its third Annual Badger Tailgate at its Waunakee location on Saturday, October 21. There was an excellent turn out of clients, community members, and colleagues.
“I am thrilled to be able to host the Annual Badger Tailgate again this year. I am passionate about bringing the community together and making a difference with the money raised. Thank you to all of our sponsors who help make this event possible,” said Chris Zellner, Market President at One Community Bank Waunakee.
This family friendly event featured free fresh grilled food, grilled by Todd Schmidt – Waunakee Village Administrator, Brendan Flanagan – AVP Bank Manager, and Brian O’Handley – SVP Head of Mortgage and Consumer Lending. Bucky Badger and the UW-Madison Alumni Band kicked off the event with Badger pride. The first 100 guests received a complimentary Badger shirt from OCB. Door Prizes from Sundara Spa, Chula Vista, Pinseekers, The University Book Store, and Meffert Car Wash were given away.
Additionally, free beverages were provided by Octopi Brewing. The game was enjoyed on a jumbotron provided by Bishops Bay. And kids enjoyed painting pumpkins.
This event raised money for the Waunakee School District Student Financial Assistance Fund and The Schumacher Farm Educational Barn Project. This year One Community Bank donated $500 to each organization, the community raised $300, and Waunakee Remodeling donated $500 to the Waunakee School District Student Financial Assistance Fund.
The Student Financial Assistance Fund ensures that all students and families can participate in their school communities regardless of a family’s financial situation and ability to pay.
The Schumacher Farm Educational Barn Project raised funds for a new building on the farm. The Schumacher Farm Park offers a variety of events and workshops for all ages.
One Community Bank remains committed to investing in our communities and is proud to support these Feel Good organizations.
