SAN DIEGO, CA (July 9, 2018) — Xpress Data, Inc., a leading provider of print and electronic document services for credit unions across the country, announced that its annual Credit Union Chili Challenge will generate a record-breaking $25,000 for charity this year. Last year’s event put $15,000 in the hands of worthy charities.

“All registration fees go directly to charity and we make up the rest,” said Xpress Data, Inc. founder Mike Cooper. Cooper added that the $25,000 will be donated to charities designated by the winning teams. “That way, we can be sure we’re donating to the charities that are important to credit unions,” he said.

Cooper also pointed out that increasing the prize money will result in donations to a wider range of charities. Prize money will be distributed as follow:
