And believe me when I say there is a lot of hope being generated at Van Andel Institute. That is why Fifth Third Bank is proud to be title sponsor of the Van Andel Institute Celebration of Hope for the seventh year in a row. As the bank of the community, Fifth Third Bank donates millions of dollars each year to enrich the lives of people in the communities we serve. Unfortunately, cancer and Parkinson disease touch so many people in our communities. We view Van Andel Institute as a critical link in connecting our dollars to community needs.” 41
