$25,000 Pledged to Phillips’ Loggers United Booster Club

Dan Virnig, Logger’s United Booster Club president, accepts a $25,000 pledge from Prevail Bank to build a new sports equipment building at the Phillips High School track & field complex. (l to r): Dan Virnig, followed by Prevail Bank – Phillips branch professionals; Bobbi Taylor, Michelle Blaskowski, Christine Moidl, and Cherie Lenz – branch manager.

A $10,000 check from Prevail Bank, a partial payment of a $25,000 pledge, was presented to Dan Virnig, president of the Logger’s United Booster Club to build a new sports equipment building at Phillips Senior High School’s track, field and ball diamond complex. The improvements made to the athletic field/complex will help make it a more viable host for out-of-town tournaments, which in turn stimulates the local economy.

“We are very appreciative of Prevail Bank’s donation,” said Virnig. “The current building is 32 years old and just isn’t feasible for use any longer. It has a dirt floor; it doesn’t provide protection from weather or animals, and it’s become unsafe. A lot of the school districts’ outdoor sports equipment is housed in this building. A new one is a must-have for our students’ safety, equipment integrity, and quality of play and learning.”

Cherie Lenz, Prevail Bank branch manager – Phillips, shared, “Prevail Bank is proud to support the Loggers United Booster Club. They are a hard-working organization, that helps make this community a better place to live, learn, and grow for our children.”

The concrete foundation has been poured. It is anticipated that the high school construction class will build the structure to code, under the supervision of Troy Makovsky and Eric Winter.

Prevail Bank’s goal is to pursue what’s possible within the communities it serves. It is passionate about economic development, financial stability and growth for individuals, families, and businesses. Prevail Bank is a community bank that is continuously looking for ways to give back, support those pursuing dreams, and make things better in central Wisconsin.

Prevail Bank’s Charitable Contributions program is available for local non-profit organizations that help local people in need, especially those with low-to-moderate incomes; stimulate communities financially; and/or enhances the standard of living of those less fortunate.
