Hyperion Bank named a Philadelphia Business Journal 2020 Soaring 76 Honoree
Hyperion Bank is honored to be included among the many fine private and public companies on the Philadelphia Business Journal's 2020 Soaring 76 list, announced last week. Rankings for the 2020 Soaring 76 will be announced in a special publication in the fall.

Michael Potter, Managing Director of The Philadelphia Business Journal, says that its 5th annual list of the region's fastest growing companies "is compiled from nominations of qualifying private companies, as well as Business Journal analysis of Securities and Exchange Commission filings for all public companies headquartered in the Philadelphia region. The rankings are based on revenue growth over the three-year period from 2017 through 2019."

In announcing the first group of honorees, Potter wrote, "In the midst of business restrictions and closures, it's easy to forget that Greater Philadelphia’s business community was riding high before the pandemic came along. It's also more difficult to recognize that another 's" – success – still abounds. These victories may be less prominent, somewhat obscured by the current crisis and the daunting recovery work at hand, but they are both impressive and worth celebrating – perhaps now more than ever."

Congratulations to all the 2020 Soaring 76 businesses! We're proud to be in such good company.

American Banker quotes Charlie Crawford
Hyperion Bank Chairman & CEO Charlie Crawford discusses how a mail slowdown impacts banks and customers in American Banker magazine
Charlie Crawford recently spoke with Jon Prior, a consumer banking writer at American Banker magazine, for Prior's August 21 article on "Why sluggish mail delivery matters to banks."

Charlie noted that in the event of a mail slowdown, he is preparing to send bank employees to small businesses to collect paperwork that might be needed for PPP relief and that would otherwise be mailed. He says, "the issue is one more reason Congress should streamline the process and automatically forgive loans for smaller businesses."

FEATURED BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT
The Village Angels of Tanzania, Inc.
a 501-c3 nonprofit organization based in Morristown, NJ
The Village Angels of Tanzania (TVAT), founded in March 2015, is the brainchild of Sister Dativa Daniel Mukebita, FSSB, a Franciscan nun from Northwestern Tanzania. Returning home after completing her studies in the US, Sister Dativa realized the double tragedy caused in her region by the Rwanda Genocide and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The Genocide resulted in a massive number of refugees moving into camps on the Tanzanian side of the border, displacing a large portion of the working age population. When the refugees returned home after several years, people who had moved away did not return, leaving behind elderly people who now live isolated throughout the countryside. 
The HIV/AIDS epidemic compounded the situation, leaving many youths unemployed and without any guidance or infrastructure from which to build their futures. Hiring a cadre of youths, Sister Dativa put them to work, cultivating the land, raising crops, and bringing food and support every week to 80 elderly people, who, to this day, remain isolated and abandoned – except for the consistent support of TVAT.

Sister Dativa’s board members in the USA founded TVAT, Inc, for the purposes of raising funds to support her activities in Tanzania and sharing the story of her good work in her homeland. Sr. Dativa is forever grateful to all donors who allow her to serve the poorest of her countrymen. 

Eric Rolin, who has volunteered with TVAT in the village and serves on the nonprofit organization's Board of Directors, says they appreciate their banking relationship with Hyperion Bank because of the "excellent personal touch and easy access to information" that Hyperion provides. TVAT knows first-hand the value of a human connection.

Anyone interested in supporting TVAT's good work can learn more or make a donation on their website, and consider participating in their "Adopt an Elder" program by pledging $20/month. Your sponsorship will provide nutritional food and eating utensils to a village elder who needs help to stay alive.

Food, Fine Arts & Cycling to Enjoy
Safely in September
PHILADELPHIA REGION
Center City District Restaurant Week,
Sept. 13-25, Philadelphia
As restrictions on indoor dining in Philadelphia ease September 8, CCD Restaurant Week is a great way to support the City's restaurant community and restore jobs--and if you're not ready to dine indoors you can still take advantage of multi-course prix fixe menus for $20 lunches or $35 dinners to take home or enjoy at outdoor dining, where available. Nearly 100 restaurants are participating this year, but not all are offering lunch or take out, so be sure to check the search-friendly website as you make your plans. Note that for indoor/outdoor dining, most restaurants require reservations, and masks are required until it's time to eat or drink. Many Philadelphia parking facilities offer digital discounts of $9 or less, making it even easier to support Center City Restaurants. Learn more. Image courtesy Center City District

ATLANTA REGION
Atlanta Food & Wine Festival: Reimagined
Sept. 10-19
Rather than cancel the annual Atlanta Food & Wine Festival due to COVID-19, the organizers have reimagined it as a half-live, half-virtual event that will give back to the local restaurant industry, which desperately needs support. From September 10-13, the Festival will host a series of Intimate Live Events featuring limited-capacity brunches, lunches, and dinners celebrating homegrown talent. Reservations are a must, with intimate indoor or outdoor seating for exclusive chef events at Buttermilk Kitchen, Aziza, Tiny Lou's, Char Korean Bar & Grill, Pig and The Pearl, Aix, Lyla Lila, The Iberian Pig Buckhead, South Main Kitchen Outdoor Alleyway Patio, Empire State South, Southern Belle, and Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours. If you'd prefer to enjoy the Festival from the comfort of home, you'll find plenty to love in the online AF&WF At Home Edition. Sign up for a virtual cooking class with some of the South's greatest culinary personalities, sharing recipes and techniques for their favorite cuisines, recipes, and cocktails. When you purchase your ticket in advance, you'll receive a Zoom link along with the recipe and a list of ingredients and equipment. Chefs will answer your questions during each class. Learn more.
