Scotiabank Sponsors Children in Need Golf Tournament 2016
Nassau, The Bahamas, November 30, 2016 – Continuing its support of the community, Scotiabank is proud to partner with Errol Brown’s Children in Need Charity again this year. The Bank is a platinum sponsor of the 14th Annual Golf Tournament in aid of various charities.
“At Scotiabank, community involvement is a central part of the way we live, work and do business every day. We are committed to helping young persons become better off and look forward to partnering with tournament organizers each year to assist children in need during the holidays,” said Leah Davis, Senior Manager, Marketing & Public Relations, Scotiabank.
Scotiabank affiliates are preparing to play in the tournament which is scheduled for Saturday, December 10, at 8:00 a.m. at the Ocean Club Golf Course, Paradise Island. This will be the second tournament since the passing of founder and patron, Errol Brown, who died earlier last year.
As Canada’s international bank, Scotiabank has been operating in The Bahamas for 60 years, since opening its first small branch in Nassau in 1956. The following year, Bank of Nova Scotia Trust Company (Bahamas) Limited – Scotiabank’s Wealth Management offering – was established in The Bahamas.
Over the years, Scotiabank has evolved into a network of 13 branches and 69 ATMs across the country, providing a complete range of retail, commercial and wealth products and services — including online banking, electronic cash management, and offshore banking services to individuals and businesses.
Scotiabank is committed to being The Bahamas’ financial institution of choice by providing comprehensive financial services to individuals and businesses, and being a good corporate citizen by helping young people in the community become better off. Each year, Scotiabank’s community donations and sponsorships exceed $300,000 while employees spend over 3,000 cumulative hours volunteering their time and energy to charitable causes.
