Bank employees raise money for Alzheimer’s research

Employees at all 13 branches of CNB Bank and Trust donated $1,750 to support Alzheimer’s research and pay tribute to coworker Lisa Wolf, whose life has been personally touched by the disease.

Wolf, assistant vice president of computer operations at the Carlinville location, coordinated the donation drive “Casual for a Cause.” To take part in the effort, employees donated money and received a recognition sticker that they could then wear to work with jeans on Friday, April 28, which would have been Wolf’s mother’s 90th birthday. Wolf lost both of her parents — Louis Wolf Jr. and Ruth Wolf — to the disease sixth months ago.

The donation will benefit the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s, to be held Sept. 23. Wolf presented the check in person to Tina Arnold, senior manager of special events for the Greater Illinois Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. For more information about the walk, visit act.alz.org.
