  • 30 The amount of seconds participants in a “Cash Vault” game got to grab a fist full of cash during a celebration May 30 for Bank of Kansas City’s expansion into Lee’s Summit.

Despite a heavy dose of thunderstorms in the area, Bank of Kansas City celebrated May 30 the grand opening of its new banking center at 1710 N.E. Douglas St. in Lee’s Summit.

Festivities included special promotions, giveaways and ceremonial ribbon cutting featuring members of the Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce.

Attendees included Lee’s Summit Mayor Randy Rhoads, representatives from the Lee’s Summit Chamber, and members of the bank’s leadership.

As part of the ribbon cutting, Bank of Kansas City also presented a donation to Hope House, a nonprofit organization that provides shelter and comprehensive services to survivors of domestic violence in the Kansas City metro area.

MaryAnne Metheny, chief executive officer of Hope House, was scheduled to accept the donation on the organization’s behalf.

Throughout the day, the bank offered a special promotion for individuals who opened a new business or personal checking account. There was also a chance to step inside the “Cash Vault” to grab as much free money as possible in 30 seconds.

“We are thrilled to have completed our expansion in Lee’s Summit and look forward to taking on a larger role and presence in this dynamic community,” Michael Viazzoli, president and chief executive officer of Bank of Kansas City, said in a statement.

The new two-story building has a traditional banking center on the first floor and a mortgage office on the second floor. The structure was designed to be environmentally friendly, while still maintaining security.
