On March 9, Credit One Bank hosted an employee appreciation event with special guest and Credit One Bank-sponsored Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver, Kyle Larson. During the event, Credit One Bank donated a total of $34,000 to local charities HELP of Southern Nevada and Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY).
As the main event, Kyle and Credit One Bank employees competed in two teams against each other in a big-wheel (adult-sized tricycle) relay race, each team representing one of the two charities. HELP of Southern Nevada was announced as the winning team, but both charities were winners when they were each presented with $17,000 from Credit One Bank. Credit One Bank has been giving back to the Southern Nevada community for nearly 20 years. To further supplement the bank's values, Credit One Bank employees sit on numerous local nonprofit boards, volunteer for community service projects, and regularly raise donations to assist local organizations.
Following the check presentations to each of the charities, Kyle met and took photos with Credit One Bank employees in front of his No. 42 Credit One Bank show car.
