Capital Bank and Pretty In Pink Capture Attention of NBC's TODAY Show
Date:7/16/2009

RALEIGH, N.C., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Capital Bank President and CEO B. Grant Yarber will appear in an upcoming segment on the TODAY Show scheduled to air Monday, July 20. A producer, NBC News' correspondent Anne Thompson and crew from the TODAY Show visited Raleigh earlier this month to highlight Pretty In Pink, a foundation providing treatment, education and support for uninsured and underinsured women with breast cancer, and Capital Bank's support of the organization. Thompson, a breast cancer survivor herself, interviewed Yarber for the segment. The TODAY Show is broadcast regionally on WNCN-TV (NBC 17). This story will air during the 8 to 9 a.m. hour and will also be online at http://today.msnbc.msn.com/.

"Our mission as a community bank is to make a difference in the lives of those in the communities we serve," said Yarber. "We supported Pretty In Pink in its early years after becoming aware of the need for a different type of support for women with cancer. Unlike organizations that fund cancer research, Pretty In Pink provides funding for critical treatment for underinsured women."

Capital Bank continues to support Pretty In Pink as the growing foundation strives toward its vision of having a presence in each state in the country by 2020. The bank also awarded Pretty In Pink its first Pink Promise Corporate Donation of 2009.

"Capital Bank helped Pretty In Pink Foundation move closer to our mission and we are deeply appreciative of both their financial commitment and their spirit of community," remarked Dr. Lisa Tolnitch, founder of Pretty In Pink Foundation. "When Capital Bank committed to be a Pink Promise contributor earlier this year, the entire Pretty In Pink Foundation staff was moved with gratitude. Their contribution helps us provide immediate and necessary financial assistance to breast cancer patients when they need it most. We will always be grateful for Capital Bank's compassion and support."

"I encourage others to support the wonderful service this organization is providing," added Yarber. "The need to assist those in North Carolina is great, yet we are confident in Pretty In Pink's efforts to eliminate financial barriers to cancer treatment in our own state and beyond."
