FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A downtown bank is offering the chance for bonus cash at its ATM this Friday.

During the River District Alliance’s ArtWalk on Friday, Dec. 7, lucky Sanibel Captiva Community Bank patrons at the downtown branch ATM will receive a special surprise – a $30 windfall.

The ATM will issue an undetermined number of $50 bills in place of $20 bills.

The ATM is located at 1533 Hendry Street, Unit 100 in the historic Edison Theater building.

“As the only downtown community bank, we take pride in being part of all the downtown activity and events. Giving some extra cash to people who are participating in all that our River District has to offer is just another way we can contribute and have some fun at the same time,” said Lee Golden, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank senior vice president and director of retail operations. “We often hear of other bank ATM malfunctions where extra money is accidentally disbursed, but that’s not the case here!”

ArtWalk is held the first Friday of each month from 6 to 10 p.m., rain or shine.

The event is free to the public with many venues featuring additional attractions and specials.
