Global Credit Union Foundation Fairway Friends Golf Tournament raises $60,000 for local nonprofits

Golfers of all skill levels descended on the Moose Run Golf Course near Eagle River, Alaska, for the annual Fairway Friends Golf Tournament. Two hole-in-ones and a helicopter-ball drop highlighted a day that raised $60,000 for two hard-working Alaska nonprofits; Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska.

“The Global Credit Union Foundation is committed to raising funds and supporting needs-based organizations that work to improve the lives of military families and children in our communities,” said Geoff Lundfelt, president of the Global Credit Union Foundation. “And we like to have fun with our Fairway friends while we’re doing it. We’re incredibly grateful for all of the credit union’s business partners who jumped at the chance to sponsor the tournament in support of these organizations and the critical work they do every day.”

$30,000 was distributed to ASYMCA, whose mission is to enhance the lives of military members and their families in spirit, mind, and body through programs relevant to the unique challenges of military life. $30,000 also went to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska, which uses a volunteer mentoring network to develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

The Global Credit Union Foundation Fairway Friends Golf Tournament is an annual event that brings together business partners, credit union leaders and volunteers, and the community to support Foundation nonprofit partners.
