Thank you to Eric Nelson, Nelson Automotive!
The Park Ridge Community Fund benefit of the annual Christmas movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” which was sponsored by Liberty Bank, and free to the public was hosted on December 9.
Thank you to Liberty Bank for once again generously sponsoring the movie and donating an Apple iPad as a grand raffle prize. A very happy Dennis Murphy from Edison Park won the iPad. Between the donations received at the door and the raffle ticket sales, the PRCF received proceeds of $3,500.
Ralph Cox played the historic organ before the movie and the Willow Academy Chamber Choir in beautiful Renaissance gowns and capes sang Christmas carols in the lobby of the theatre.
Since 1958, the Park Ridge Community Fund has been the easiest way to help neighbors of all ages and with a wide array of critical needs, right here at home. The PRCF is here to assess the needs of our community, and then raise and allocate funds to help meet those needs. Volunteers – who live or work in Park Ridge – control all aspects of PRCF’s activities. With one convenient gift to PRCF, you help 29 service organizations make life better, neighbor to neighbor.

Park Ridge Community Fund Names Arroyo New Campaign Manager
Park Ridge, IL – The Park Ridge Community Fund (PRCF) has named Liberty Bank’s Park Ridge Branch Manager Olivia Arroyo as Campaign Manager for FY 2019-2020. PRCF’s campaign manager participates in year-‘round fundraising events and other efforts to raise awareness and funds for the local-focus, multi-charity non-profit organization.
“We are thrilled to have Olivia on board and have great confidence in her ability to help us achieve our mission and fundraising goals,” says PRCF President Sheri Roche. “The two dozen area charities and service groups we support can be life-altering for people in our community, and Olivia has actively volunteered for PRCF since she came to Park Ridge.”
As branch manager of Liberty Bank for Savings in Park Ridge, a community bank providing personal banking and mortgage lending, Arroyo offers a wealth of knowledge and experience tailored to this community. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Northeastern Illinois University, she has worked for Liberty Bank for over a decade, more than half of that tenure at the Park Ridge location.
Arroyo has been an active member of the Park Ridge Community Fund and the Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce for the past five years. In her spare time, she enjoys reading and going on walks with her husband and three-year-old daughter.
