OU Women’s Basketball Team Scores with Credit Union ONE

FERNDALE, MI (May 3, 2013) The Oakland University (OU) sports teams were recently involved in a Varsity Sports Smackdown, and the results are in:  The OU Women’s Basketball Team has taken the honors!!

Geared as a way to engage with Oakland University students, the “Smackdown” was used to generate awareness of Credit Union ONE as the university credit union of choice and to connect with student groups and give them the opportunity to earn funds for their organization.

During the month of March, members and friends had the opportunity to vote for their favorite Oakland University Varsity Sports team by liking the Credit Union ONE Campus Branch page on Facebook and voting for their favorite team on the page, with the winning team receiving a cash prize.  Anyone opening an account at the Credit Union ONE Campus Branch could also receive an additional 100 votes for the team of their choice.  Teams were encouraged to spread the word to their families and friends to boost their vote total.  The votes were tallied and the team with the most votes was declared the winner, receiving a check from Credit Union ONE for $375.00.

Anne Hafeli, OU Women’s Basketball Coach said, “We thank Credit Union ONE for their donation to the Oakland University Women’s Basketball Program.”

When asked about the sweepstakes, Kevin Trembath, Branch Manager of Credit Union ONE Oakland University Branch said, “This sweepstakes was a win-win for everyone.”  “For Credit Union ONE, it engaged the current fans of the Credit Union ONE OU Facebook page and it also gave more visibility to our OU Campus Branch. For our student members, we were able to give back to them and show them that their causes are important to Credit Union ONE.”
