FBFC and Ebert’s Greenhouse Donate Thanksgiving
For the fourth
consecutive year,
First Bank Financial
Centre (FBFC) and
Ebert’s Greenhouse
joined forces to raise
money to purchase
Thanksgiving meals
for families in need
in the Oconomowoc
FBFC and Ebert’s
partnered with Piggly
Wiggly in Oconomo-

items for these meals.
All meals included
a Thanksgiving
turkey, apple juice,
fruit cocktail, green
beans, corn, cran-
berry sauce, stuffing,
mashed potatoes,
gravy, orange and
strawberry Jell-O,
corn bread, and muf-
fin mix. “Piggly Wiggly was incredibly
helpful, and worked … to purchase
the largest quantity of food for our
donation. This year, we were able to
feed 60 area families and hopefully
made their Thanksgiving just a bit
more special,” said Heather Kolter-
mann of FBFC’s Corporate Marketing
The money for the meals was raised
during a fundraiser that took place
during November at Ebert’s Green-
house. For every pumpkin sold during
this time period, FBFC and Ebert’s
each donated a dollar — for a grand
total donation of $1,000.
On Nov. 21, FBFC and Ebert
employees assembled the 60 meals at
the First Congregational Church of
Oconomowoc, where families then col-
lected their Thanksgiving meals.
