The 21st Annual Service 1st Charity Golf Tournament Raised $30,000 to #DoGood for local charities
DANVILLE, PA (August 26, 2014) — Friday, August 22, started as a typical day at Frosty Valley Country Club, Danville until Service 1st and their friends arrived, raising $30,000 to benefit three local charities during the 21st Annual Service 1st Charity Golf Tournament.
Funds raised were combined with those donated during the credit union’s Third Annual Charity Duck Derby held earlier in August and presented to The Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, Nolan’s Heart of Steel and Montour County Veterans Affairs.
“Occasionally, I have Veterans who fall into an unfortunate financial crisis through no fault of their own,” said Douglas Resseguie, Director, Montour County Veterans Affairs. “This money will go a long way in helping deserving Veterans get back on their feet with some short term emergency assistance. I’m very grateful that Service 1st chose to support deserving Veterans through their charity.”
This year’s tournament included 130 golfers, numerous volunteers and sponsors, including fellow credit unions and a number of local organizations.
“At Service 1st, we like to challenge each other to do good for others. We feel doing good results in a stronger, happier, and more prosperous community,” said Bill Lavage, President | CEO, Service 1st. “Whether by participating in events like this, or sharing a random act of kindness, we can each do our part to make a difference. On behalf of the Service 1st team, I thank everyone who made our 21st Annual Charity Golf Tournament a success.”
