Simsbury Bank is pleased to announce that it is a $1,000 Swarm Sponsor of the Granby Education Foundation’s 16th annual Gran-Bee event. The Gran-Bee is the foundation’s annual fund raising trivia contest, which will be held this year on Friday, May 3, at 6:30 p.m. at the Granby Memorial High School auditorium.

Bernadeta Eichner, Senior Relationship Manager of the Granby branch, said, “We’re very proud this year to again support this important and fun fundraising activity for the foundation.” 

“We thank Simsbury Bank, a consistent sponsor of this event for many years, as well as the other generous sponsors who support this event each year,” said Kim Becker, Board Chairman of the Granby Education Foundation. “The Gran-Bee is a fun and family-friendly evening that contributes significantly to the GEF’s ability to sponsor innovative and meaningful education opportunities for students and all residents of Granby.”

In addition to sponsoring the event, Simsbury Bank will field a trivia team.
