Oct. 19, 2011 - PRLog -- LEWISTON, Maine – Androscoggin Bank announced that the Bank will be a leading sponsor of the ninth annual L.L. Bean Camp Sunshine Pumpkin Festival on October 29 in Freeport, ME. All proceeds from the event will benefit Camp Sunshine, a year-round retreat in Casco, ME, which provides respite, support, joy, and hope to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. This event will be held from noon to 6 p.m. at the iconic L.L. Bean store in downtown Freeport featuring a costume parade, corporate carving challenge, whoopie pie eating contest, pumpkins-on-wheels derby, and a brilliant display of 6,000 lit jack-o-lanterns. The Bank will feature a sponsored vehicle in the costume parade, in addition to sponsoring an employee team for the corporate carving challenge.

This is Androscoggin Bank’s third year of sponsoring the Camp Sunshine Pumpkin Festival, a preferred charity for the Bank. For the 2011 event, the Bank’s $10,000 donation will help Camp Sunshine achieve its goal of raising $60,000 during the event. To support Camp Sunshine’s efforts, all are encouraged to purchase a $1 paper pumpkin or $5 paper pumpkin patch for display in any of the Bank’s 13 full-service branches across the State of Maine during the month of October. Customers can also visit Camp Sunshine’s web site and sponsor a pumpkin for $10: http://www.campsunshine.org/glowheart/index.php.

“In our third year of involvement with Camp Sunshine, we are thrilled to be a headlining sponsor of the Pumpkin Festival,” said CJ Conrad, Chief Customer Officer at Androscoggin Bank. “The Pumpkin Festival has raised more than $1 million over the last nine years and we are happy to play a part by selling the paper pumpkins and pumpkin patches at all of our branches. The Freeport festival will serve a dual purpose: to rally the local Maine community and provide a unique opportunity to help sick children and their families through medical and recreational support programs.”

For its entire 141 years, Androscoggin Bank has supported hundreds of organizations by funding new initiatives and responding to urgent needs in the community. For more information on Androscoggin Bank’s community-giving programs, visit http://www.bankoncommunity.org.
