ADVISORY/Nun Who Took Vow of Poverty Wins $10,000 from U.S. Bank and WLW When Reds Hit Back-to-Back Home Runs

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 30, 2004--When the Reds are playing, there's a good chance you'll find Sister Susanna Helms tuning into WLW to hear it on her little transistor radio.

She and two other Sisters were listening to the Reds/Marlins game on May 31, when Sister Susanna's name was called out as the Reds fan who would win $10,000 from U.S. Bank if the Reds hit back-to-back home runs. Barry Larkin and Sean Casey obliged, helping to win both the game and $10,000 for the Sisters of Saint Francis in Oldenberg, Indiana. As Sister Susanna took a vow of poverty, the money will go to the Sisters of Saint Francis to help it meet expenses.

Sister Susanna will receive her check for her Order on Wednesday, June 30 from Leigh Kem, U.S. Bank district manager during check presentation ceremonies at the Great American Ball Park. She will also have a chance to talk with Reds play-by-play announcers Marty and Joe, and cheer the team on as they play the Mets that night.

Entry forms can be filled out by visitors at any of the participating U.S. Bank offices to enter the U.S. Bank / WLW Back-2-Back Cash Back promotion. During the Reds broadcast on WLW, listen to Marty Brennaman and Joe Nuxhall on WLW for your name to be announced at the beginning of the fifth inning. And, if the Cincinnati Reds hit back to back home runs in the fifth inning, that lucky contestant is $10,000 richer!
