BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced the community bank will once again help kick off the annual Candy Cane Lane holiday lights display by hosting North Shore Bank Night on Friday, Nov. 25 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. During opening night, North Shore Bank will be onsite collecting donations for Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc. (MACC Fund). Additionally, bank employees will be on hand to collect loose change for the North Shore Bank “Change for a Cure” drive, in which the bank matches donations.

“Our decades-long partnership with Candy Cane Lane and the MACC Fund is one we continue to cherish year after year, and we’re thrilled to be supporting the neighborhood event again this year,” said Joline Lazarski, branch manager for North Shore Bank. “We encourage everyone to come out and join us in donating to help fight childhood cancer at this safe, festive, and worthwhile celebration.”

North Shore Bank will also collect coins in its annual “Change for a Cure” matching campaign from Nov. 25 through Dec. 25 at area North Shore Bank offices in Wisconsin. Throughout the state, anyone who stops at a bank office will be able to count their coins for free and donate a portion or all of the funds to the MACC Fund, which uses the funds to support the Medical College of Wisconsin, Children's Hospital, University of WI, Cancer Center and Marshfield Clinic. The bank will match the donations up to $1,000.
