A Successful Grand Opening Event in Santa Clara

Published July 29, 2015

Everyone had a great time at our Santa Clara Financial Center's grand opening ceremony last night, with special guests including members of the Meriwest Board of Directors and the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce.

As our guests gathered, they checked out the center's cyber cafe, financial resource center and modern new design while enjoying an array of refreshments.

Soon after, the center's dedication began. Our Senior Vice President and Chief Experience Officer, Tony Cortez, thanked everyone for their presence and
introduced several honorary speakers. Chairman of the Meriwest Board of Directors Stanley Chapman, our CEO and President Julie Kirsch, and Santa Clara Mayor Jamie Matthews all spoke highly of Meriwest's dedication to truly serving the community in which we are located - both through our financial services and our philanthropic efforts.

Jennie Nguyenly, the Annual Fund Officer of Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, also spoke to the crowd. Ms. Nguyenly thanked us for helping them feed about a quarter of a million people every month. Meriwest will donate $10 to Second Harvest for every new membership opened at our Santa Clara center now until August 15th.

After the speeches, Ms. Kirsch and Mayor Matthews, joined by the Meriwest Board of Directors and the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce, cut the grand opening ribbon with a giant pair of scissors!

We also had a guest win our raffle prize - a pasta dinner gift basket, complete with gourmet pasta sauce, imported dressing, and much more! It was truly a pleasure for us to host an event to celebrate the opening of our new center.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who attended!
