The Family Center and Great Western Bank Join in Raising Critical Funds for Low-Income Families


The Family Center/La Familia, a nonprofit early childhood and family support and education center, is pleased to welcome Great Western Bank as a major sponsor for its 6th Annual Family Center Fiesta to be held May 12, 2012 from 6-10 pm at the Fort Collins Senior Center. The Family Center Fiesta is The Family Center/La Familia’s most important fundraising event of the year, and funds raised in the event go directly toward providing critical early childhood education and family strengthening services in Larimer County.

The Family Center Fiesta provides an evening of multicultural music, dancing, authentic Mexican food, live and silent auctions, and an evening of celebration open for the entire community.

“We simply couldn’t provide the critical family services to Larimer County that we do without the support of truly caring organizations like Great Western Bank,” said Stephane Tillman, Co-Executive Director of The Family Center/La Familia. “Great Western Bank is not only our banking partner, but also our philanthropic partner, and they feel as strongly as we do about stabilizing local working families and helping them become self-reliant.”

Great Western Bank leadership and team members know that in order for the mission to become a reality it needs to be backed by action.
