Broadway Bank honored their military heritage, their founders and their 75th anniversary of being “here for good,” by presenting a $75,000 donation among three local military-serving non-profit agencies. These agencies support service members and their families at a time when they face the most difficult challenges of their lives:
Col. Charles E. Cheever Sr. and Betty Cheever founded Broadway Bank 75 years ago to meet the banking needs of fellow service members and the local community. Col. Cheever served in World War II as staff judge advocate for General Patton. Their son, Broadway Bank Chairman Emeritus Charlie E. Cheever Jr., served as a pilot in the U.S. Air Force and the Texas Air National Guard after graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
We are excited to support Fisher House at both Lackland and Fort Sam Houston and the Warrior and Family Support Center in their commitment and dedication to our service members. During this 75th anniversary year, we pause to honor our military heritage by giving to organizations that truly make a difference in the lives of our military heroes and their families every day,” said David Bohne, Broadway Bank CEO.
A representative from each agency addressed some 200 Broadway Bankers who were on hand for the morning ceremony, telling the story about how they serve members of the military and their families.
