YONKERS, N.Y. -- If you see a witch, a cat or a monster today at Ridgewood Savings Bank in Yonkers don't be alarmed: it's all part of the bank's "Costumed for a Cure" event where employees dress up on Halloween in an effort to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Customers and fellow employees are asked to vote for their favorite costume by making a small donation (donations are optional). The bank has been doing this for more than 25 years and each year raises more and more money. Last year it collected approximately $4,000.
All 34 branch locations across New York are participating. In Yonkers, you'll find the bank at 670 McLean Ave., 964-9820.
