When it comes to volunteering or donating to a cause or charity, we tend to believe, “What difference can one person make?” But the truth is, no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.

Chesapeake Bank and our employees encourage you to join us in supporting area nonprofits and service organizations that play an essential role in the growth and well-being of our communities. 

Auction of mural to benefit the Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House

As a way to raise awareness and funds for the Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House, the Westhampton branch of Chesapeake Bank will auction local artist Emily Herr’s “Party on the Avenues” mural beginning today and continuing through Tuesday, December 1, also known as “Giving Tuesday.”

The Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House, a home away from home for the families of patients at Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital is located on Libbie Avenue beside the St. Mary’s campus. The Reinhart Guest House has helped more than 650 families since opening in June 2014.

Bidding will take place through December 1, 2015. The winner of the Party on the Avenues mural will be announced on Wednesday, December 2, 2015. All proceeds from the mural auction will assist the guest house in covering day-to-day operational costs in addition to supporting patient’s families during their stay at the house, regardless of their ability to make the suggested donation of $45 a night.

As part of the Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House’s established donor distinctions, if a bid rises above $1,000, the donor will become a distinguished member of the Guest House’s Fleur~de~Lis Society. Society members are invited to attend Bon Secours Foundation events and special society functions, as well as be recognized on the annual donor wall located in the Reinhart Guest House. The best reward of all is knowing your investment will help improve the health of our community by providing support to families in need.
