Bringing Smiles to Special Olympics Athletes



What a thrilling day of volunteering! As part of our bank's corporate sponsorship and support of the 50th anniversary of Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC), over a dozen bank associates volunteered for the recent Pier del Sol, a fundraising festival benefiting athletes with intellectual disabilities.

Held at the scenic Santa Monica pier, Pier del Sol featured mouthwatering tastings from over 35 of L.A.’s top chefs and restaurants, entertainment, music, arts & crafts, games, and unlimited rides at Pacific Park. All proceeds from this event benefited the athletes of SOSC.

Our volunteers hosted two exciting carnival booths and were delighted to bring smiles to the many special needs individuals and their families. The Special Olympics enrich the lives of more than 34,700 athletes with intellectual disabilities through sports, education, and athlete health. We are so grateful to play our part and participate in such a meaningful event.
