Recognizing Lee National Denim Day

Lee National Denim Day is a fundraising event that was created by Lee Jeans in 1996 to support women’s cancer programs. Every year, people are asked to donate the money they would spend on a pair of jeans to support breast cancer research and wellness programs. The beneficiary of the program is the American Cancer Society and the special day is celebrated on the first Friday of October. Hancock County Savings Bank proudly supports Lee National Denim Day and this year the event will be held Friday, October 4.

The employees of Hancock County Savings Bank were given the opportunity to take part in a contest where they were asked to design a t-shirt in honor of the day. The designs were then presented at the recent Weirton Board of Realtors Affiliate meeting, where members of the board voted on their favorite creation.

The winning design was ordered and distributed to all employees of the bank, as well as everyone in attendance at the Board of Realtors Affiliate meeting. Bank employees were encouraged to wear the winning t-shirt on October 4, and those who made a donation to the cause were also permitted to wear jeans.

A prize was awarded to the top three employees. The winners were:

1st place – Angie Goettel

2nd place – Amanda Durk

3rd place – Dennis Mohoroski
