Our Relay for Life Team

About Team FBH

First Bank Hampton has been a sponsor of Relay for Life for many years. In 2015, under the leadership of several employees “Team FBH” was formed.

We held our second Fall Festival on October 30, with ten games set up to play, a fun craft and a special goodie bag for each of the children who came and participated. It was a beautiful afternoon and a successful RFL event. 

We once again hosted our annual employee bake sale in April. There was a variety of baked goodies just in time for Easter: from pie, to bars, and lots of other yummy items. Thanks to your generosity, we raised $2,000!

We had another successful Walking Taco event in May raising $1,711.70. The lunches were packaged with a walking taco, condiments, chocolate chip cookie, and bottled water.

Team FBH organized a silent auction for the annual Relay for Life Luminaria walk in Sheffield on Friday, July 28, 2023. We were excited to be part of this event where local businesses and individuals donated gift baskets and gift certificates for a common cause. More than $1,800 were raised from the efforts of the silent auction. We are in this relay together against cancer. Thanks Team FBH! 

History of Team FBH Relay for Life Team’s Events

The first year in 2015, the team kicked off with the theme, "Banking on a Cure". They planned several fundraisers and to their amazement and delight, were able to raise over $2,700!

The second year in 2016, the team planned and hosted a few more events raising close to $5,000 with 100% of the money going to Relay for Life! Raising more than they ever dreamed encouraged them to think bigger in 2017!

The third year in 2017, the team planned and hosted nine events raising $9,607.87! Team FBH worked very hard at coming up with a wide variety of events. The old saying, "It takes a village" was definitely true as it took all the FBH employees volunteering to help in some way with the planning and execution of these nine events. Hat's off to Team FBH for another successful year!

The fourth year in 2018, the team planned and hosted six events raising $5,780.90. It was another successful year and the team was already planning new fundraisers for the next year. 

The fifth year in 2019, the team hosted five major events including a Spa Day in January, Walking Tacos in our parking lot in May, an employee bake sale in June, and a “Make and Take” stenciled wood sign in October raising $9,084.82.

The FBH team also agreed to spear-head the Silent Auction Event for the annual Relay for Life Event in July 2019. That night there were friendly bidding wars with people watching their items. When the silent auction was closed and the proceeds collected, over $5,000 were raised for the Franklin County Relay for Life!

With COVID-19 in 2020, many of our events had to be postponed. Team FBH hosted the annual Walking Taco event in May, and a virtual Silent Auction event. Our FBH team again spear-headed the event, collecting donations, videoing the baskets and monitoring the online auction. Proceeds collected totaled $7,028.49.

In 2021, Team FBH geared up for their seventh year of planning and hosting four events: the annual Walking Taco event in May, employee bake sale in June, silent auction and lemonade stand in July. After a slow welcome back to Relay for Life events, we raised over $9,000 for Franklin County Relay for Life!

The eighth year in 2022, the team held five events which included the Fall Carnival, Sack Lunch Fundraiser, Walking Taco fundraiser, Bake Sale, and sale of succulents. Once again our FBH Team spear-headed the Silent Auction event in July. We raised a total of
