SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA (September 10, 2021) – September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and American Riviera Bank, in collaboration with Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation, is using plush toys to help spread the word – and the love.

On display and for sale throughout the month of September, soft teddy bears are available at Santa Barbara County ARB branches for $20 each – with all proceeds going to the nonprofit Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation, which helps families with children battling cancer.

The teddy bear sale supports TBCF’s annual Gold Ribbon fundraising campaign, which takes place every September.

“As a central coast community bank, American Riviera Bank is proud to support the amazing efforts of TBCF as they empower families living in our area who have a child with cancer,” stated Jen Napoli, Senior Vice President and Regional Branch Banking Manager.

TBCF has been serving families in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties since 2002 by providing them emotional, educational and financial help.

The teddy bear sale goes on through September 30, during regular banking hours, at American Riviera Bank’s three Santa Barbara area locations: at 1033 Anacapa St. downtown, 525 San Ysidro Road in Montecito and 5880 Calle Real in Goleta.
