Tribute To Local Business

Tribute To Local Business



First Bank joins 101 ESPN radio (WXOS), 92.3 (WIL) and 106.5 The Arch (WARH) as we recognize local businesses in the St. Louis Metro area that work hard to make our communities a better place to live and work.

Through First Bank's Tribute to Local Businesses, one local business will be chosen as the business of the week. They will be recognized on all radio stations’ websites, will receive a framed certificate as well as $100 to be donated to their favorite charity. The nominating person will also receive a $100 First Bank gift card.

One Grand Prize will be awarded a $5,000 on-air/on-line advertising package with any of the radio stations as well as a $5,000 on-air/on-line advertising package to their favorite charity all courtesy of First Bank. The winning Grand Prize business also receives a lunch for 25 and a produced 2 minute video of their business.


The First Bank tribute to Local Business is a yearly promotion that recognizes small business owners and entrepreneurs in the St. Louis metro area for their commitment to their business, employees, and communities. This year's winner, Marine Solutions out of St. Charles, was recognized in July. Owner Damon Andersson joined First Bank's Kelly Weise to discuss the promotion and what it means to be the 2018 winner with KTVI Fox 2 News.
