Citizens Bank Helps Make the Dreams of Three People Come True with Fund Your Dreams Giveaway

Citizens Bank is making the dreams of three lucky people come true through its “Fund Your Dreams” Giveaway. Following a public vote via Facebook, three winners were selected. The grand prize winner, Claudia Arsenio, will receive $25,000 to help realize her dream of renovating her family’s farm.

More than 5,000 consumers submitted either a 30-second video or a 150 word essay (with photo) describing a dream that Citizens Bank can help turn into reality.

“The Fund Your Dreams Giveaway is a great way to help those in the communities where we live and work reach their potential,” said Domenick Forte, head of Home Equity Lending at Citizens Bank. “Claudia’s heartwarming essay highlighted her passion for her family’s farm, and we’re proud to help fund her dream.”

The three winners of the Fund Your Dreams Giveaway included:

  • $25,000 Grand Prize winner. Claudia Arsenio of North Dartmouth, MA.
  • $10,000 First Prize winner. Roxanne Watson of Nanuet, NY.

Additionally, two finalists received $100 each. A full list of winners and their stories can be found at

In conjunction with the giveaway, Citizens is donating $25,000 to the Military Warriors Support Foundation. The bank has partnered with the organization to donate three homes to injured military veterans and their families. The most recent home was donated in May in Pittsburgh.
