Congratulations Leadership Award Winners! 
Each week we will recognize another of our Leadership Award recipients. This week we honor Sunrise Banks. 

Sunrise Banks has been a critical community partner in the Midway for 100 years. A family owned nationally chartered bank with headquarters in the Midway, Sunrise has a long history of serving our inner-city communities. As engaged in the community as they are with their customers, the coffee shop at the Como Ave location supports a nonprofit each month, and in 2016 Sunrise led a build for Habitat for Humanity. Members of the Sunrise Team have played volunteer leadership roles at the Midway Chamber of Commerce for many years.
