Independent Bank sponsors Soup for Suits

February 26, 2013

Independent Bank sponsored the seventh annual Soup for Suits event to help benefit the Muskegon Rescue Mission. Since it began seven years ago, Independent Bank has been the major sponsor of this lunch event.

Over 100 business people were treated to soups and bread served by Independent Bank volunteers at Fricano’s Event Center. Soup, bread, dessert and coffee were donated by the Grand Traverse Pie Company. The goal was to raise funds for the Rescue Mission and heighten awareness of their work with the homeless and needy in the community.

“We are proud to be the premier sponsor for this event for the seventh year in a row,” said José Infante of Independent Bank. “The Muskegon Rescue Mission is a wonderful organization in our community and we are happy to support them.”
