• Marquette Bank Launches Adopt-a-Classroom Prize Drawing

    Local bank to give away $200 gift cards to 23 winning local classrooms

    Orland Park, IL (August 9, 2013) –– Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, will launch its 5th annual Adopt-a-Classroom prize drawing. Beginning on Monday, Aug. 12th through Saturday, Sept. 14th, Marquette Bank customers, local teachers and parents can enter at any Marquette Bank location for a chance to win a $200 gift card for any Illinois elementary, junior high or high school classroom of their choice. Teachers of the winning classrooms can use the gift cards to purchase supplies for their students. There will be one winner at each bank location and 23 Chicagoland classrooms will be selected at random in the drawing.

    “As a neighborhood bank, we want our children to have all of the tools in order to succeed because they are the future of our local communities,” Betty Kosky-Harn, Executive Vice President, said. “The Adopt-a-Classroom prize drawing is a fun way we give back to our local schools every fall.”

    In the past years, teachers have used the prize money to take special field trips, create special craft projects or purchase books, educational games and equipment for their students. The Adopt-a-Classroom prize drawing is part of the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment’s efforts to support education. Each quarter, the bank focuses on a different area of need: shelter, hunger, education and health/wellness as part of the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment.
