Team Runte of The Bank of Washington participated in Snohomish County’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s for the third year in a row. Team Runte’s namesake is to honor Joe Runte, our former CFO and long-time friend of The Bank of Washington family. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Team Runte had 13 walkers and two furry friends participate in Saturday morning’s event. Team Captain, Diane Broderick managed to raise over $3200, making it the 6th highest campaign in Snohomish County’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
For the 8th year in a row The Bank of Washington is proud to support the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival. Our very own Turi Morton, VP and Branch Manager of the Mukilteo office, serves on the executive board of the MLF Association and is thrilled to have her entire branch staff participate in the festivities. Turi and her team worked the festival’s official information booth and assisted attendees with directions in the festival and answered general inquiries. This event is the premier summer event for the Mukilteo community and boasts the famous Kiwanis Club Salmon Bake, VIP dinner for military personnel and first responders, live music in the ever popular Mukilteo Chamber of Commerce beer garden, Run-A-Muk 5k-10k dash, and the grand finale fireworks display.
The Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival teamed up with The Snohomish Running Company for the 2017 Run-A-Muk 5K and 10K from Rose Hill Community Center. All proceeds benefited the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival.
The Bank of Washington’s Mukilteo Office recently hosted a business after-hours event for the Mukilteo Chamber of Commerce. Over 30 members of the chamber and friends of the bank attended a fun-filled All-American picnic themed event, complete with beach balls, Frisbees, and loungers. Treats for the attendees were brought from locally owned businesses, such as Northwest Biscotti, located in Mukilteo, and sandwiches from the Subway franchise located next door to The Bank of Washington. The Human Scavenger Hunt icebreaker game was a big hit and the group learned very quickly everyone these days owns a Facebook account and has traveled by plane to their destination. The bank donated a bottle of wine for the business card raffle, and the chamber donated two bottles of wine and a jacket made by a locally owned company.
The Bank of Washington was presented with the Positive Change Award by the United Way of Snohomish County Prize Patrol. Together, we create positive change to achieve long-lasting results in our community.
