Central Savings Bank celebrates 11th Annual Burger Bash

Wednesday, June 15th the Directors, Officers and Staff of Central Savings Bank came together to host their 11th Annual Burger Bash for the benefit of My Michigan Health Road to Recovery Cancer Care-A-Van Program.  Held under the canopy of CSB’s main office, 500 burgers were served along with all the fixings, chips, cookies, lemonade and bottled water.  The cost for the meal is by donation and always has been. 

This year, $9,006.35 was raised, the most ever.  Last year, we raised a little over $8,100.  To date, the CSB Family has collected and donated about $73,000 to the program, which is run entirely on donations.  The program drives cancer patients of the Eastern Upper Peninsula, for free, down to Petoskey, Michigan for treatments they might otherwise skip due to the cost of traveling or lack of transportation.

Presently, there are 25 trained volunteer drivers who drive 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year.  Since the program started, they have served 554 community members, an increase of 44 patients from those driven in 2021.  “Between the cost of bridge fare and gas, which is estimated at $12,300, the CSB Family is happy to help when and where we can,” stated Andrea Masters, CSB Marketing Director.  CSB also sells t-shirts leading up to and at the event with all the money going to the program.

“It’s so wonderful to have the ongoing support from everyone at Central Savings Bank.  Their staff donates time for the annual Burger Bash and it has become an event we look forward to each year.  Because of generous donors, volunteers and events like this, MyMichigan Health Road to Recovery is able to continue providing transportation to cancer patients of the EUP.  The funds raised by CSB make a large impact in the continuation of this program,” stated Marla Bunker, CNO/COO MyMichigan Health.   

Mark Savoie, CSB’s CEO and President, says “It is an honor to partner with MyMichigan Health Sault staff to raise much needed funds for this worthwhile cause that helps so many in the communities we serve.”

Central Savings Bank has nine locations with 16 conveniently located ATMs throughout the EUP.  Be sure to ask that the CSB Family can do for you!  Call 906-635-6250 or visit us at centralsavingsbank.com.  You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
