Dream Vacation: From Garden City, Kansas, to Nassau, Bahamas!

At Dream First Bank, we believe in supporting every dream that our customers have, no matter how seemingly wild or outlandish it may appear. That’s why we were so excited to help one of our youngest account holders with a history of benefiting from Dream First’s services go on the vacation of a lifetime to the Bahamas.

A Generational Connection 

Mario Lopez’s family has been part of the Dream First community for years. Before he was born, his parents began utilizing Dream First’s services. Through our in-house branch at the Tyson plant where they worked, his parents were able to open checking and savings accounts that set them up for future success. The Lopezes also took advantage of the seminars we hosted at the facility, which educated employees on their banking options and offered advice on how to manage their money more effectively. 

Mario’s parents decided to purchase their first home to accommodate their growing family, Dream First was there every step of the way. Our lending and home mortgage consultation team offered great mortgage rates and meaningful guidance throughout the process of acquiring their dream house.

As their children grew, Mario’s parents knew they needed a way to position them to reach their future financial goals. While they were in elementary school, the Lopezes opened savings accounts for Mario and his sibling so that they could start saving for whatever comes next as soon as possible.

Getting the Getaway

Now a high school graduate, Mario has turned his attention toward what his adult life might look like. Savings account in hand, he realized that having access to a checking account or reliable credit card would help in building his credit and overall financial stability. So, once again, Mario turned to Dream First Bank. 

As he logged onto the Dream First website to explore checking account options, he noticed our giveaway for an all-expenses paid trip to Nassau, Bahamas, for two. Mario tossed his name into the hat, excited by the opportunity but not expecting to receive the prize. 

After a few weeks, the drawing closed, and his name came up as the winner! The president of Dream First Bank called Mario to tell him that he’d won, but received no answer. Mario Lopez was convinced it was a scam! After several attempts at contact, Dream First finally had to reach out to his dad to convince him that this was no trick — he really had won the grand prize!

From there, the team at Dream First was thrilled to help Mario get ready to go on an all-inclusive trip to the Bahamas. He chose to bring along his mother, who he sees as an inspiration. They had a great time at the resort, where they were waited on by a personal butler and spent hours at the beach each day.
