“Arizona Bank & Trust is proud to sponsor the Fiesta Bowl Kickoff Luncheon, as we’ve been impressed with the organization and all it does for Arizona’s charities. Clear in their mission to be ‘More Than Just a Game,’ the team won us over in how well they have leveraged the best event in collegiate sports, while at the same time bringing the community together for the betterment of Arizona,” said Arizona Bank & Trust President & CEO Bill Callahan. “Our own success is based on earning clients ‘one relationship at a time,’ and we are confident that this partnership with the Fiesta Bowl will provide us the opportunity to reach out throughout Arizona and make a difference in many lives.”
