Organizers of the annual Taste of the Region received a boost from Merrillville-based Centier Bank.
Anthony Contrucci, Centier’s vice president of business development, along with the bank’s special events coordinator, Melissa Contrucci, presented a $5,000 sponsorship in support of the Service League of Northwest Indiana’s annual fundraising event.
The seventh annual Taste of the Region is for March 6 at the Halls of St. George, 905 E. Joliet St. in Schererville. The event features more than 40 Region-based restaurants serving samples of their top menu items and also feature craft beers, dancing, raffles, and a silent auction.
“Service League of Northwest Indiana is a 100% volunteer based non-profit organization that supports dozens of charities across the Region in various ways,” Contrucci said. “Centier Bank is proud to support the efforts of these incredible women, who directly benefit the homeless, the elderly, animal shelters, and domestic violence shelters. Overall, the Service League helps make Lake and Porter Counties a better place to live.”
Melissa Contrucci said the event is not only a fun community gathering, which aligns with Centier’s core value of fun, but has also been extremely successful in raising funds to support local charities.
“Over the years, the Taste of the Region has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars that benefit local charities and organizations in our area,” she said. “We are confident that this year’s event will be a great success, which will help provide basic needs and other special support to those in need, who will benefit from the great work The Service League does.”
