Tompkins Insurance Agencies and the Tompkins Bank of Castile Sponsor Night at the Races event at the Batavia Downs Clubhouse

Tompkins Insurance Agencies and the Tompkins Bank of Castile were proud to host the 5th annual Arc of Genesee Orleans “Night at the Races” on November 1, 2017.

The event helped raise needed funds for the Arc of Genesee Orleans, a private, non-profit organization that provides programs and services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout Genesee and Orleans counties.

Held at Batavia Downs Clubhouse in Batavia, N.Y., the evening’s events were made possible by the Tompkins Winner’s Circle sponsorship. Guests at the event included employees from Tompkins and Arc of Genesee Orleans, as well as those served by Arc of Genesee Orleans. They were treated to an expansive buffet and premium seating overlooking the race track.

Whether through sponsorship opportunities or time commitments from Tompkins employees, philanthropy is a cornerstone of the Tompkins Financial Corporation philosophy and the Night at the Races is testament to the company’s continued support of the communities in which it works. Tompkins Financial has supported the Arc of Genesee Orleans in the past, including Tompkins Bank of Castile awarding the agency $2500 in December 2016 as part of its Community Minute Challenge. The social media-based quarterly contest included local non-profits who posted one-minute videos voted on by members of the public to determine the recipient of a donation.
