• The local charitable organization receiving the most qualified votes will be awarded a $15,000 donation.
• Subsequent winning organizations will be awarded funds in proportion to the number of votes submitted. (Amounts to be determined at the sole discretion of the Bank, with a maximum donation of $10,000).
