Golden Sunrise, the lone surviving club in the Mummers' Fancy Division, thought 2015 might be its last march, without an infusion of cash.
It has just received $10,000 from Republic Bank.
"We are a community bank and we want to support our communities here. This is a perfect chance for us to do that and save the Fancy Division, which is a fabulous thing for us to do," said Rhonda Costello, the bank's chief retail officer.
Golden Sunrise's plight was brought to the bank's attention by a November column of mine. Details in tomorrow's Daily News.
