Better Banks Kicks Off Fundraiser for Brad Wallin Memorial Tournament
Better Banks is pleased to announce a fundraiser benefiting the Brad Wallin Memorial Baseball Tournament. During the month of May, Better Banks will be collecting cash donations at all branches for the Brad Wallin Tournament. For every donation received of $5 or more, Better Banks will give the donor a baseball piggy bank.
The Tournament takes place June 2-6, 2021. 320 teams will participate in the tournament played on 47 fields throughout the Central IL area. Teams travel from all over Illinois and surrounding states to compete in seven different age divisions, and participate in one of the largest baseball tournaments in the nation in 2021.
This year the tournament expects to raise enough funds to push them OVER a million dollars donated to St. Jude kids since 2008. All funds collected will be given to St. Jude, on behalf of the Brad Wallin Memorial Tournament, in July at the annual St. Jude Telethon in Peoria. Better Banks is proud to support such a meaningful event, for one of our local families. Please stop by any of our branch locations to make your donation soon.
