Amalgamated Bank held a grand opening celebration for its new branch at 426 86th Street in the Bay Ridge. During the ceremonies, Amalgamated’s President and CEO Derrick D. Cephas welcomed more than 50 guests and congratulated the students from Fontbonne Hall Academy, who won the Brooklyn Championship while competing in The Challenge, a program presented by Cablevision, which requires students to provide split−second answers to questions about everything from the arts to zoology.
During the presentation, the bank played a video with a personal message from CNBC−TV’s Maria Bartiromo, a Fontbonne Hall alumna, who urged the students to continue their quest from knowledge.
