United Federal Credit Union Supports ‘Pink Games’ to Raise $5,000 for Berrien Cancer Services

ST. JOSEPH, MI (May 15, 2013) United Federal Credit Union (UFCU) teamed up with four local softball teams to raise more than $5,000 for Berrien Cancer Services at the third annual ‘Pink Games’ tournament on May 11. UFCU sponsored the “Four Teams One Cause” commemorative t-shirts that were sold by the four participating teams from Lakeshore, St. Joseph, Coloma, and Bronson High Schools.

Pink Games founder Sherry Hiler of Stevensville, and mom of Lakeshore High School senior softball player Megan Hiler said, “The girls wanted to give back to the community and keep it local, choosing Berrien Cancer Services to benefit from the fundraiser.” Funds raised are earmarked for breast cancer patients for mammograms and treatments for those who cannot afford it. “We are thankful that United Federal Credit Union covered the expense of the 500 t-shirts, because 100% of the shirt money went to the cause,” stated Hiler.

Each team wore special uniforms featuring pink for the one-day tournament, which coincided with the St. Joseph Invitational. Many local businesses donated prizes and services to the raffle held at the end of the tournament, with all raffle proceeds going to the cause.
