North Shore Bank Kicks off 36th Annual Candy Cane Lane With “Change for a Cure” Matching Campaign for Childhood Cancer Research

North Shore Bank has announced the community bank helped kick off the annual Candy Cane Lane holiday lights display by hosting North Shore Bank Night on Friday, Nov. 26 from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. During opening night, North Shore Bank was onsite collecting donations for Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc. (MACC Fund). Additionally, bank employees were on hand to collect loose change for the North Shore Bank “Change for a Cure” drive.

“We’ve had a long-time partnership with Candy Cane Lane and the MACC Fund since its start in 1985, and we’re thrilled to be supporting the neighborhood event again this year,” said Joline Lazarski, branch manager for North Shore Bank. “Candy Cane Lane is a great, safe way to festively celebrate the season, while supporting a crucial cause. We encourage everyone in the community to join us in donating to help fight childhood cancer this holiday season.”

North Shore Bank will also collect coins in its annual “Change for a Cure” matching campaign from Nov. 26 through Dec. 26 at all North Shore Bank offices in Wisconsin. Throughout the state, anyone who stops at the bank’s locations 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.

Candy Cane Lane’s Mascot Night will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 4. Mascots from around Milwaukee, including North Shore Bank’s own Seymour Savings, will welcome spectators to the holiday wonderland.

Each season, the West Allis neighborhood bounded by Oklahoma to Montana Avenues and 92nd to 96th Streets is transformed into a festive holiday lights display called Candy Cane Lane. People come from all over the Midwest to drive or stroll through the uniquely decorated neighborhood. The free event runs from Friday, Nov. 26 through Sunday, Dec. 26. In addition to donating at North Shore Bank branches, visitors can make a MACC Fund donation at Candy Cane Lane throughout the event and can donate online at www.candycanelanewi.com.
