Golfing for Ikes CU victims nets 60000
FARMER’S BRANCH, Texas (12/9/08)--Texas’ Golf for the Gulf Celebrity Tournament to benefit credit union victims of Hurricane Ike netted $60,000, announced the Texas Credit Union League. Southwest Corporate FCU joined the Texas Credit Union Foundation (TCUF) and the league in hosting the event on Nov. 18 (LoneStar Leaguer Dec. 8). In addition to the corporate, sponsors included American Share Insurance-Excess Share Insurance, Bluepoint Solutions, CO-OP Financial Services, Co-op Shared Branching, Credit Union Resources Inc., CUNA Mutual Group, Level 5, PULSE EFT, TNB Card Services, United Heritage CU of Austin, and U.S. Central FCU. Celebrity athletes played in the tournament. They included Baseball Hall of Famers Harmon Killebrew and Ozzie Smith, who headlined the roster with county and western performer Charley Pride. In addition to his musical career, Pride was also a member of the 1950s Sox Negro League. He joins the Texas Rangers for workouts each spring, said the league. The roster also included athletes from the Rangers, the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Twins, San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers, as well as local broadcast personalities. Proceeds from the event will be combined with existing hurricane relief funds, which will enable TCUF to administer the Phase II grant process for those most severely affected by Hurricane Ike. “There is still so much work to do in rebuilding lives and property,” said Texas league President/CEO Dick Ensweiler.
