The Houston Chapter of CUs continues to raise funds for children’s charities. On April 15, 41 credit unions and business partners participated in the Chapter’s annual Golf Tournament at Tour 18 Golf Course in the Houston area. Over 128 people participated in the event, raising $26,000 for children’s charities.
“As this is very rewarding work, I feel fortunate I was able to play an active role in helping this year. I cannot say enough about the generosity of local area credit unions and their vendors,” says T. Scott Kreinbring, executive vice president at PrimeWay FCU and event organizer. “Watching their eagerness to give back to the local communities we serve made my job simple. I am incredibly proud to be part of the credit union industry.”
All participants enjoyed the tournament knowing the funds support children in need. One participant, Brian Ellis, vice president at InvesTex CU and HCCU Ad Coop committee member stated “although my golf game isn’t where it was when playing in high school golf tournaments, I’m happy to participate in the Chapter’s golf event. It’s definitely a worthy cause, all had fun, and Mr. Kreinbring and his staff did another outstanding job running the event. Next year, let’s build on this success to do even more.”
The golf tournament is one of many efforts the Chapter supports the community and enhances the quality of life in the Greater Houston Area.
