Kearny Bank Sponsors Theater League of Clifton on Its 14th Season

Kearny Bank recently donated $6,000 to the Theater League of Clifton to help underwrite the cultural organization’s activities. The Fairfield, New Jersey-based bank is a corporate sponsor of the Theater League, a non-profit organization now in its 14th season, which is dedicated to fostering an appreciation of the arts through theatrical performances.

“We’re delighted for an opportunity to sponsor an exceptional organization like the Theater League of Clifton,” says Eric Kesselman, First Vice President and Director of Marketing at Kearny Bank. “The League is a cultural treasure for its local community and given Kearny Bank’s recent merger with Clifton Savings Bank, we’re strongly committed to supporting Clifton and its surrounding neighborhoods. This is one of those ideal engagements that benefits all involved.”

Kesselman recently presented the sponsorship check to two representatives of the Theater League of Clifton’s executive board, Mark Peterson, president and John Traier, treasurer.

“Speaking on behalf of my colleagues on the executive board, actors, musicians and production staff, the Theater League of Clifton is most grateful for this generous donation from Kearny Bank,” says Peterson. “These funds will go to support the Theater League’s ongoing efforts to provide the city of Clifton with quality theatrical productions and cultural events.”

The Theater League of Clifton (www.theaterleagueofclifton.com [theaterleagueofclifton.com]) will open its fall season with “Godspell 2012” at the Theresa Aprea Theater, 199 Scoles Avenue in Clifton, November 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11.
