We are happy to announce that Republic Bank has been renewed its status as the Premier Title Sponsor of downtown’s 2014 First Friday Trolley Hop Program! Republic Bank’s sponsorship will help cover the cost of the free trolleys that take participants to various art galleries, restaurants, and shops along the Main and Market Street corridors and also support the marketing and promotion of the program. This generous sponsorship will develop new opportunities for the program that will continue to highlight downtown Louisville and promote its economic vitality.
