Point Breeze Credit Union golf tournament raises $25,000 for the Maryland Food Bank

HUNT VALLEY, MD (September 19, 2019) — Point Breeze Credit Union’s Second Annual “The Harvest” Golf Tournament has raised $25,000 for the Maryland Food Bank.

Held Monday afternoon, September 16, 2019, at Hayfields Country Club in Hunt Valley, the benefit tournament drew more than 100 participants for 18 holes of golf, food, and prizes – all of which raised money to support the Maryland Food Bank and its mission to reduce hunger in Maryland.

“At Point Breeze Credit Union, we pride ourselves on being both a reliable financial institution and a good neighbor. And as part of our ongoing commitment to giving back to the communities we serve, we are honored to support the Maryland Food Bank and its efforts to feed our neighbors in need,” says Point Breeze President and CEO Bernard McLaughlin.

“On behalf of Point Breeze, I want to thank everyone who helped to make this year’s golf tournament even more successful than our inaugural event, and contributed to the outstanding work being done by the Maryland Food Bank,” McLaughlin continues.

Currently celebrating 40 years of leading the fight against hunger in the state, the Maryland Food Bank last year distributed enough food to provide more than 37 million meals to working families who are having difficulty making ends meet, seniors who are forced to choose between medicine and food, and children who would otherwise go to school hungry.

“We know it takes more than food to end hunger; it takes a village. That’s why we are so grateful to partners like Point Breeze Credit Union who are willing to step up and support our mission,” says Carmen Del Guercio, President & CEO of the Maryland Food Bank. “Thanks to Point Breeze and everyone who participated in ‘The Harvest’ Golf Tournament, we will be able to distribute enough food for 75,000 meals to people in need across the state.”
