NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.

The event drew 102 players and 14 sponsors. CUNA Mutual Group, based in Madison, Wis., served as title sponsor.
 
"The RMJ/CUNA Mutual Golf Tournament was a huge success. The funds we raised will go a long way toward funding the Bite of Reality, our signature youth financial education program for teens in California and Nevada," said RMJ Executive Director Tena Lozano.
 
In addition to CUNA Mutual, other major sponsors included CO-OP Financial Services; CU Direct; Educational Employees CU, Fresno, Calif.; Wescom CU, Pasadena, Calif.; SchoolsFirst FCU, Santa Ana, Calif.; First Tech CU, Mountain View, Calif.; and the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues
