Central Bank partnered with the St. Paul Saints to honor the great Larry Doby, the first African American in the American League, by sponsoring Larry Doby Night on Wednesday, August 14th at Midway Stadium, St. Paul, MN.

Central Bank donated 2,000 tickets for the game so that underprivileged families and children from the community could enjoy a night of Saints baseball - something they might not have had the opportunity to do otherwise. Central Bank partnered with local charities and non-profit organizations to distribute the tickets and arrange for those served by the organizations to attend the night’s game.

Prior to the game, employees of Central Bank greeted fans as they entered Midway Stadium and provided literature, tips and financial tools to promote financial education.

 “Central Bank is proud to support local charitable organizations that work to strengthen the communities we serve.  There are few things more rewarding than giving back to the community and knowing that you’ve made a real difference in the lives of others.” said Larry Albert, CEO of Central Bank. “We’re pleased to have been able to help so many families enjoy a night of baseball which they might not have otherwise been able to attend, and to help build a stronger community through promoting financial literacy.”

Central Bank currently has 21 locations serving the greater Twin Cities Metropolitan Area in Minnesota & Western Wisconsin and Southwest Florida, with assets totaling $1.2 billion. Central Bank is widely recognized as a financially strong organization committed to community banking.
