Genisys Sponsors Utica Ice Festival

AUBURN HILLS, MI (February 21, 2013) – Genisys Credit Union recently sponsored the 9th Annual Utica Ice Festival, which took place February 8th through the 10th.

This year, the festival theme was ‘The Wonderful World of Disney’ and featured entertainment by Radio Disney. In addition to the Disney events, the Utica festival also featured carriage rides, DJ/dancing, fireworks, and an ice carving contest.

Mayor Noonan addressed the city Friday night during the opening ceremonies for the event.

“Our Ice Festival is truly a unique event, we are so pleased to have Genisys join our Utica family,” Mayor Jacqueline Noonan announced. “Their corporate philosophy mirrors our city’s commitment to offering the best to our residents and businesses.”

Additionally, Utica High School students in the DECA club were honored on Friday Night for their commitment to making a difference in the Utica community. DECA’s objective is to support the development of marketing and management skills of high school students. DECA not only teaches students how to be successful in the business world, but also the importance of giving back to the community. Utica DECA students were showcased Friday night for their hard work and efforts to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy.

The Utica DECA club is one of seven community groups being honored by Genisys Credit Union in their Making a Difference program, which is held at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

“Genisys appreciates having an opportunity to be a part of the Utica family,” said Jackie Buchanan, President/CEO. “The Ice Festival and Utica DECA organization signify what we are all about; giving back to the community.”
