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!
