Orland Park, IL (Aug. 4, 2015) –– Employees of Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, recently held a walk in Orland Park in remembrance of Evelyn Schap, a retired senior manager, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2010.
More than 75 Marquette Bank employees and family members participated in Evelyn’s Walk which contributed over $1,900 to the Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation.
“This is the fifth year for Evelyn’s Walk and in addition to raising awareness of pancreatic cancer, we’re able to pause and remember Evelyn and her time at Marquette Bank,” Nina Sonsikoski, Marketing Manager and organizer of the walk, said. “Each year we do something a little different that reminds us of Evelyn. Evelyn was always proud of her Greek heritage inviting co-workers to her church’s annual Greek Festival and bringing homemade desserts into the office, so this year we had an assortment of Greek pastries at the walk for participants to enjoy!”
Evelyn’s Walk is part of the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment where each quarter, the bank focuses on a different area of need: shelter, hunger, education and health/wellness.
