CBF is pleased to sponsor the 6th Annual Casting for a Cause fishing tournament benefitting the Prader-Willi Florida Association. Prader-Willi Syndrome is a genetic condition that affects one in every 12,000 births. It causes insatiable hunger, slower metabolism, learning disabilities, speech issues, behavior difficulties and weak muscle tone.
This year’s tournament will run from May 1st through 3rd and funds raised will go towards research projects and providing families the funding to attend conferences and obtain materials they need to help them deal with the syndrome. For more information about the fishing tournament and sponsorship opportunities available, visit www.castingforacause.com or call 305-245-6484.

Another season, another banner hanging in support of the Broncos. Homestead Senior High School is considered a small school in Miami Dade County and receives limited support due to their size. They rely on donations to help them play and CBF was pleased to once again assist their Broncos Baseball Booster Club with fundraising to purchase uniforms, hats, shoes and equipment. For just $300, your banner can also hang on their home field throughout the season. Any amount of support would be appreciated, contact Coach Bruce Berman at (305) 298-2272.

CBF is proud to celebrate Patty Medeiros’ 20th anniversary with our financial family. Patty is our Director of Credit Risk, where she makes sure we comply with consumer loan regulations and encourages activities that reinvest in our communities. She also oversees the credit department, where they crunch loan figures and complete tasks after loans are closed. Over the years at the bank, Patty has been recognized numerous times, including as Employee of the Year and she received our Captain Community Award. She reflects on her tenure here and says, “The bank is a wonderful place to work; not only have I been able to grow in my professional life, but in my personal life as well.”
When away from work, Patty spends as much time as possible with her family. Her three sons have blessed her with three grandchildren. She loves to teach them old fashioned games, put together jig-saw puzzles and watch movies. In addition, she is also ‘mom’ to a rescue dog named Max.
