First Seacoast Bank Sponsors Small Business Award as Part of Upcoming CelebrateHER Event

November 2, 2023 - Dover, NH - First Seacoast Bank (FSB) is thrilled to announce that they will be working in conjunction with The Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth and the Women’s Business League as a sponsor of the CelebrateHER Luncheon. The event takes place at the Atlantic Grill in Rye on Wednesday, November 8, from 12-2 p.m.

First Seacoast Bank is the presenting sponsor of the Small Business Award, which will be presented at the luncheon.

CelebrateHER marks the commencement of a new educational series aimed at addressing the unique obstacles and trials faced by women in business. This inaugural event will feature a diverse panel of speakers, each an expert in their respective fields – non-profit organizations, large corporations, the arts, and small business ownership. The purpose of this series is to equip women with the necessary tools and resources that can aid them in achieving success in their desired profession. The shared experiences and stories of panelists speaking at this exclusive luncheon will serve as a source of inspiration for our community.

“It’s great to have businesses like First Seacoast Bank so eager to help sponsor this event,” said Liz LaBrecque, Events Manager of The Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth. “Diversity in an economy is always better, and we want to collectively showcase groups that have felt marginalized in the past and help them grow within their business and industry. It’s in the interest of the overall economy here within the Seacoast to promote that and further prosper inclusive growth.”

First Seacoast Bank is proud to be a part of this important endeavor dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of women in business within the Seacoast region. This gathering provides an opportunity to build connections, network with peers, and acknowledge each other's significant achievements. Following the panel presentation, the aforementioned awards ceremony will commence.

“It’s an essential part of First Seacoast Bank’s mission to lift fellow community business organizations and leaders and play a small role in shining the spotlight on those making the communities that we call home such a special place,” said James R. Brannen, President & CEO of First Seacoast Bank. “We are thrilled to support this event and its impressive and worthy cause by showcasing inspiring women business leaders here in the Seacoast.”

Proceeds from this event will contribute towards a scholarship fund at Portsmouth High School. For more information and to obtain tickets, please visit:
