2nd Annual Dave & Dan Classic raises $408,000 for credit unions for kids benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
BEAVERTON, OR & MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (July 22, 2014) — The 2nd Annual Dave & Dan Classic, presented by First Tech Federal Credit Union and OnPoint Community Credit Union, raised a record $408,000 for Credit Unions for Kids, which benefits Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. The tournament took place at The Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club in Aloha, Oregon, on July 14.
The golf tournament was created with the leadership of Tom Sargent, former First Tech President and CEO, and is named after NFL Hall of Fame Inductees Dave Wilcox and Dan Fouts. This year’s edition featured 28 celebrity guests including fellow Pro Football Hall of Famers Ronnie Lott, Mel Renfro and Kellen Winslow.
“This tournament would not have succeeded without the support of our corporate sponsors, credit unions, volunteers and friends of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, “ said Greg Mitchell, First Tech president and CEO. “Through the years, the tournament has not only given credit unions the chance to collaborate but to also make a meaningful impact in the lives of others by helping children get out of hospital beds and onto the playground. I’m proud to say we’ve raised more money this year for Credit Unions for Kids than ever before.”
Formerly known as the “Hank and Moose Open,” the tournament has raised more than $3 million during the past 14 years to become one of the biggest credit union-sponsored events supporting Credit Unions for Kids, a non-profit organization under which America’s credit unions raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“The Dave & Dan Classic is an outstanding event and the money raised is a huge benefit to Credit Unions for Kids. We firmly believe in the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people’ and this is one example of how credit unions come together to give back to our communities,” said Rob Stuart, OnPoint president and CEO. “We are proud to be involved and support Children’s Miracle Network hospitals and the children and their families who benefit from their care.”
“Our credit union partners never cease to amaze us, and First Tech and OnPoint are no exception,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “I am honored to be involved with the Dave & Dan tournament and grateful for the generosity that allows our member hospitals to provide life-saving care to local kids. Donations from this event will directly impact families in the First Tech and OnPoint communities by funding pediatric rehabilitation treatments and cancer research among other critical services, equipment and charitable care.”
Tournament proceeds benefit several children’s hospitals including the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital (Portland, OR), Sacred Heart Medical Center (Eugene, OR), Seattle Children’s Hospital (Seattle, WA), Oakland Children’s Hospital (Oakland, CA), and UC Davis Children’s Hospital (Sacramento, CA).
Top sponsors included MasterCard, CO-OP Financial Services and PSCU.
