Coastal Bank and Trust Team Raises Money for “Relay for Life”

Gulf Breeze, FL - Coastal Bank and Trust’s fundraising team, the Coastal Beacons, joined forces with the customer-sponsored Bayside Battlers to raise money for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life’s annual event. The teams raised $5,641.41 for the cause and the two-day event held at Gulf Breeze Dolphin Stadium resulted in funds totaling more than $100,000.

For all their efforts, the Coastal Beacons and Bayside Battlers won the fourth place fundraising trophy and reclaimed their prized “Pre-Event Spirit Award”— a 3 ½ foot-tall purple and gold trophy.

“This was our third year with a team while also serving as bank sponsor for the Gulf Breeze event. It’s a lot of work, but it’s so rewarding to be involved with a cause that has touched all of us. We look forward to next year and hope to beat this year’s total!” said April Stewart, Gulf Breeze Branch, Team Captain.
