CBF is pleased to once again sponsor the Pi Nu Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity in their 15th annual Purple & Gold Ball. The event is the main fundraiser for their Academy of Scholars, a program that provides college grants to local high school seniors. The fraternity believes education leads to nurturing, mentoring and molding youth to become citizens that ‘give back’ to the community. Each year they strive to make a larger impact by increasing the number of scholarships they award.
The Purple & Gold Ball is a formal affair featuring fine cuisine, live entertainment, an elegant setting with a purpose to help fulfill a promise. It will be held on April 25, 2014 at Jungle Island. It’s not too late to support the event or purchase tickets. For more information, visit email@example.com

CBF is excited to share that Lydia Rosado is having her 25th anniversary with the bank. Lydia is a customer service rep at the Princeton Office and says her favorite part of the job is “Making the customers happy!” Her customers must agree, because she is often pleasantly surprised to receive letters of thanks, which are shared at monthly staff meetings.
Lydia is a dedicated member of her church and likes to volunteer by tutoring children and visiting local hospitals. She has six grandchildren and attributes her job at the bank as the support she needed to put them all through college. She feels her customers and coworkers are just an extended part of her family and looks forward to many more years working here.

Homestead resident and former South Dade High school football star Noah Wilbanks believed so strongly in the FCA’s core values that he quit his job as a high school teacher and coach and became a full time staff member at the FCA. For the last ten years, he has served as the local Area Representative, running football camps, working with the Coaches Ministry and helping schools form student led, student initiated huddles. He is excited to be planning this fundraiser and hopes it becomes an annual event that brings visibility to the organization and encourages community support for local school programs. "Our goal is to meet people where they are at, to serve and help them grow their faith," states Wilbanks.
The FCA is the largest Christian sports organization in America and has served communities since 1954 by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference. The FCA supports male and female student athletes of all sports, as well as their coaches. The local FCA chapter extends from Florida City to Bird Road and includes South Dade Senior, Southridge Senior, Palmetto and Killian High Schools.
