Consumers Credit Union and RacingAwareness.com announce partnership for charity golf event
KALAMAZOO, MI (July 30, 2014) — Consumers Credit Union is proud to partner with RacingAwareness.com as the title sponsor of the RacingAwareness.comCharity Golf Outing on September 15, 2014. The partnership also includes support throughout the year with volunteers and education awareness.
“Consumers has a lengthy history of supporting community causes in West Michigan,” says Kit Snyder, Consumers Credit Union CEO. “We are pleased to partner with RacingAwareness.com to support the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, which plays such a vital role in all of our member communities.”
“We work very hard in our area to find the right partners with our same vision. We have certainly found this with Consumers,” says Jeff Striegle, co-founder of RacingAwareness.com. “They have a strong belief in community and in giving back to support the community through their volunteers and passion. I look forward to what we can achieve together.”
The 5th Annual RacingAwareness.com Charity Golf Outing, powered by Consumers Credit Union, is scheduled for Monday, September 15 at Thousand Oaks Golf Club. This year’s event is expected to again be a sell out. Golfers will experience 18 holes of golf with a cart at one of Michigan’s premier semi-private golf clubs, as well as access to the driving range and putting green, lunch and dinner, door prizes, and the very popular RacingAwareness.com auction that follows golf.
In addition, RacingAwareness.com and Consumers Credit Union are working on new and unique promotional and fundraising ideas. “We have one primary goal, and that is to raise money for the families that endure a healthcare situation with a sick or injured child and the medical attention they receive through Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. Together we are working on some pretty amazing ways to do just that,” Striegle added.
Consumers’ first two greater Grand Rapids locations are currently under construction, with work expected to take six months to complete. The credit union looks forward to bringing more focused service to Grand Rapids members with the opening of these new locations. Lynne Jarman-Johnson, Consumers Credit Union CMO, is thrilled to bring the Consumers member service experience to Grand Rapids, saying, “We anticipate strong demand for consumer loans and mortgages, in particular, along with business loans. We are committed to providing the financing options that meet the needs of our community. We’re excited to introduce ourselves to Grand Rapids through this new partnership with RacingAwareness.com.”
