CARLINVILLE — CNB Bank & Trust employees at all 13 branches joined to donate a total of $1,750 to support Alzheimer’s research and to pay tribute to fellow co-worker Lisa Wolf, whose life has been personally touched by the disease.
Wolf, assistant vice president of Computer Operations at CNB’s 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. This date was especially significant for Wolf, as it would have been her mother’s 90th birthday. She lost both of her parents, Louis Wolf Jr. and Ruth Wolf, to the disease just six months ago.
The donation will benefit the Walk to End Alzheimer’s annual walk, which will be held on Sept. 23 at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. Lisa Wolf presented the check in person to Tina Arnold, senior manager, special events for the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter.
