Home National Bank continues tremendous support for The Arts at Cowley�
National Bank has been supporting cultural arts at Cowley for over 10
years. During this time, they have donated over $124,000 which
has been used to bring in world-class entertainment like "The Vienna
Boys Choir", "African Footprint", "The Ten Tenors", and many more. Coming
this year are "Straight No Chaser" and The "Harlem Gospel Choir".
“With Home National Bank’s support, we have been able to offer our community the opportunity to see fabulous entertainment that you would normally have to see in a large city and pay a lot of money for” said Cowley College Executive Director of Alumni and Development Shannon Massey. “We keep our ticket prices low so the members of our community and surrounding communities can afford to attend.”
Roger Brown, Chairman/CEO of Home National Bank, is happy to help Cowley College in its efforts to bring top-notch entertainment to Arkansas City.
“We are only too proud to support Cowley College in its support of the arts,” Brown said. “My father, Bob, considered Home National’s support as one of our civic duties. We hope that everyone enjoys this season’s performances as much as we at Home National Bank will.”
"Straight No Chaser" will perform in the Brown Center on the Arkansas City campus of Cowley College on Wednesday, December 9 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be sold in mid-October. The "Harlem Gospel Choir" will perform at Cowley College on Friday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be sold in February for The Harlem Gospel Choir.
