BUFFALO, NY (September 15, 2017) — On August 16, 2017, Buffalo Metropolitan Federal Credit Union (BMFCU) held a charity golf tournament to benefit WNY Heroes, Inc. The tournament raised $15,000 for the local organization, a record setting fundraising amount for BMFCU.

In addition to the golf tournament, BMFCU held dress-down days showing off WNY Heroes apparel to help raise awareness of the important work WNY Heroes is doing for local veterans.
“The Board of Directors and staff were very passionate in raising as much as possible for our local veterans,” says Jeanne Stadler, CEO of Buffalo Metropolitan FCU.

A check from the golf tournament will be presented to the founder of WNY Heroes, Inc., Chris Kreiger, Sr., on September 27, 2017 at 3:30 pm at BMFCU located at 62 S. Elmwood Ave., Buffalo, NY 14202. “WNY Heroes, Inc. has grown to be the leading Veterans advocacy group in WNY when it comes to supporting our local heroes.

This was the 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament that BMFCU has held. Their commitment to the local community is a primary focus of BMFCU who, for more than a decade, have raised tens of thousands for multiple local causes through a variety of activities.
