On August 13, State Bank of Lizton sponsored its quarterly Hendricks County Business Leader Cover party to celebrate the three business leaders that graced the covers of the third quarter’s issues of the Business Leader: Judy Sexton from the Bread Basket, Shane Ray of XRB Radio, and Tim Whicker of Electric Plus.
Another important component of the Cover Party is the charity donation made by State Bank of Lizton. This quarter, State Bank of Lizton chose to celebrate the Hendricks County Community Foundation’s new project—HCGives.org. The Bank put up two $1000 donations to projects located in the Bank’s first two markets. The Pittsboro One Room Schoolhouse Repair project will use the money to replace the front door of the living history school. The Lizton Lions Club Park project will utilize the money to provide a safer environment for visitors and make the park handicap accessible.
“We are so grateful to the State Bank of Lizton for helping the Community Foundation promote HCGives,” said Executive Director William A. Rhodehamel. “The new platform allows members of the community to go directly to the HCGives.org page on the HCCF website and donate directly to a specific project or organization of their choice.”
HCCF Program Administrator Eric Hessel added, “This is not only the future of giving, it fits our mission. We are literally connecting caring people to the causes that matter to them.”
