TopLine Credit Union Foundation hosts 3rd annual lawn bowling fundraiser raising $19,000
Proceeds used to award post-secondary education scholarships
MAPLE GROVE, MN (August 14, 2018) — TopLine Credit Union Foundation, a non-profit organization of local member-owned financial cooperative TopLine Federal Credit Union, raised $19,000 towards a scholarship fund that will help students with the costs of higher education at a recent lawn bowling benefit event.
The third annual TopLine Credit Union Foundation charitable event took place at Brit’s Pub in Minneapolis Thursday, July 26 with nearly 110 attendees and 43 sponsors coming together to enjoy lawn bowling on the downtown pub’s rooftop, a live auction, silent auction and raffle, all to benefit a great cause — financial grants for education.
Since the inception of TopLine Credit Union Foundation in 2015, the foundation has awarded 48 scholarships totaling $30,000 to recipients pursuing or continuing post-secondary education. In addition, the foundation has granted new young members of TopLine up to a $25 match on initial deposits made into any new youth savings or checking account to encourage saving and personal finance habits. Last year 308 youth members were awarded the $25 match — representing $7,700 in total matched dollars.
“We are thrilled to have such fantastic support and generosity from our employees, members, business partners and community, while having some fun lawn bowling for a cause,” said Vicki Roscoe Erickson, President, TopLine Credit Union Foundation. “Proceeds from our fundraising event will be awarded in scholarships to help students with the costs of higher education. We look forward to future fundraising events such as this, allowing us to grant even more scholarships over the coming years.”
