About Team FBH
First Bank Hampton has been a sponsor of Relay for Life for many years. Three years ago, some of the employees got together and formed our Team FBH. This team kicked off their first year with the theme, "Banking on a Cure". They planned several fundraisers and to their amazement and delight, were able to raise over $2,700!
The second year, the team planned and hosted a few more events raising close to $5,000 with 100% of the money going to Relay for Life! Raising more than they ever dreamed encouraged them to think bigger in 2016!
The third year, the team planned and hosted nine events raising $9,607.87! Team FBH worked very hard at coming up with a wide variety of events. The old saying, "It takes a village" was definitely true as it took all FBH employees volunteering to help in some way with the planning and execution of these nine events. Hat's off to Team FBH for another successful year!
This upcoming year's fundraising events will be kicked off with "No Shave November" according to Stephanie Kloetzer, this year's coordinator. She's already busy planning several other events like a wine glass painting event in December so be sure to watch for the announcement of future events!
No Shave November: All six male employees have agreed to not shave during the month of November. The catch being they must receive at least a $10 per day donation to keep those whiskers! ! The female employees all donated $10 on the 1st to get them started. The total raised was $1002.00!
Spa Day: Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed our spa day event on Sunday, January 21. It was a cold, wet day outside, so this event was a great way for our guests to pamper themselves and fight off the winter blues!
Valentine String Art: On Monday February 5th a group gathered together to create a heart string art plaque. Everyone had a great time and had a chance to release their creative side with a new piece of art for their home!
Walking Tacos! Great weather, great food and great support made this a very success event! Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed a walking taco that day!
Employee Bake Sale: The staff truly out did themselves this year! We had a wide variety of pies, cake, cookies and all types of snack mixes. There was a little something for everyone! By the days end we were down to one plate of cookies and $927. Thank you to everyone who made this a very successful event!
Thank you for supporting our events! We appreciated your support for our team!
