Dakota CU Foundation raises $25,000 for CMN Hospital

BISMARCK, ND (August 22, 2023) — The Dakota Credit Union Foundation (Foundation) held their 7th Annual Golf Scramble on Wednesday, August 16, 2023, at Rose Creek Golf Course in Fargo, ND. The day was dedicated to launch fundraising for a new micropreemie care unit at Fargo’s Sanford Children’s Hospital, the state’s only Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospital.

More than 80 individuals, making up 20 teams, representing 14 unique credit unions, as well as many business solution partners, and a team of doctors and executives from Sanford Children’s Hospital participated, making this the most successful Foundation Golf Scramble to date.

Thanks to a $5,000 Miracle Match from Co-op Solutions, a surprise contribution of $1,000 from the Red River Chapter of Credit Unions, along with the many sponsors and players, the Foundation presented a check to Sanford Children’s Hospital for $25,000. As always, Dakotas’ credit unions are happy to support the kids and the special care provided to sick and injured children at our regional CMN Hospitals.
