Bank donates to breast cancer recovery



The fight against breast cancer in Wisconsin received a boost recently, after a check presentation to Breast Cancer Recovery Foundation, Inc. in Fitchburg, totaling $17,645.88. “This annual donation by Wisconsin Bank and Trust provides critical support for programs that help women heal emotionally after surviving breast cancer,” said Gail Riedasch, executive director of the Breast Cancer Recovery Foundation. “We greatly appreciate the bank’s long standing contribution to this vital aspect of breast cancer recovery.” The Pink Ribbon Debit Card is free and available with all Wisconsin Bank & Trust personal checking accounts. “Each time a customer swipes his or her card to make a purchase, the bank makes a 2.5-cent contribution to the Breast Cancer Recovery Foundation in Madison,” said Amber Tenpas, vice president/retail banking manager of Wisconsin Bank & Trust. Since the launch of the Pink Ribbon Debit Card in May 2012, community members have taken 1,745,028 “swipes against breast cancer,” leading to $43,625.73 in total donations to the Breast Cancer Recovery Foundation. The bank’s parent organization, Heartland Financial USA, Inc., has contributed nearly $400,000 to cancer support groups since 2012. Riedasch accepted the donation during a presentation at Wisconsin Bank & Trust’s Fitchburg location on Verona Road. Representing Wisconsin Bank and Trust at the event were Tenpas, Jill Mack, private banker and Breast Cancer Recovery Foundation board chair; and Steve Machotka, market president for the Madison area.
