Since 2002, employees from The Talbot Bank, a member of the Shore Bancshares community of companies, have joined together each year as the Talbot Bankers Relay for Life Team. Over the years, the team has raised well over $100,000 for the American Cancer Society.
In preparation for the 2013 relay, the Talbot Bankers participated in a number of fundraising events. The team held a Christmas bake sale in December and participated in the Gospel Fest to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in June. They also held a pit beef sale in July and delivered to local businesses. In August, Foxwell Auctions provided the use of their services and facility for the Talbot Bankers to auction donations and baked goods to raise funds for their team. Through collaborative efforts between team members and other Talbot Bank employees, the Talbot Bankers were able to gather over 50 items including baked goods, gift baskets, planters, coolers, and pictures for the auction. In just one hour, they raised over $2,300 for their team.
As a result of all their fundraising efforts, The Talbot Bankers raised a total of $8,042.77 for the 2013 Relay for Life of Talbot County. They were Talbot County’s number one team, achieving the highest amount of money raised and earning them the title of Top Team.
