Capital One Bank has a long-standing relationship with City Park and has made several investments in the park in 2013 alone. Local associates Karen Deblieux and Leigh Thorpe serve as members of the board of both City Park and Friends of City Park, respectively, leading capital improvement efforts annually and providing financial guidance whenever needed. Philanthropically, Capital One Bank has invested in City Park's "Lark in the Park", and "Celebration in the Oaks" fundraising events, and has provided more than 150 hours of volunteer capital for the planning, set-up and operations of both events. Lastly, when a team of 150 Capital One Bank associates from across our national footprint requested a volunteer project in New Orleans, City Park was the obvious choice. Associates planted necessary vegetation in two large areas of the park, providing another 375 hours of service in support of this local treasure.A Strong Partnership
