New Hampshire League Raises $160K For Make-A-Wish
MANCHESTER, N.H. (8/19/13)--The collective efforts of the New Hampshire Credit Union League, New Hampshire's 20 credit unions, and other funding projects in that state have achieved a noble goal: Altogether, they have raised $160,000 for Make-A-Wish New Hampshire in 2013.

NHCUL Board Chairman Gerald Dumoulin praised the tireless work of these volunteers, credit union members and sponsors in Foster's Daily Democrat (Aug. 16), a local New Hampshire news source.

More than one-third of the $160,000 total was raised from the 13th Annual Richard D. Mahoney Credit Union Charity Golf Tournament. The remaining $105,000 was through credit union and member donations, fundraising sales and auctions.

This year's haul brought the group's 17-year Make-A-Wish fundraising total to around $1.8 million.

The Daily Democrat noted Make-A-Wish New Hampshire has helped build a basketball court, fund a trip to Disneyworld, and purchase an in-home golf simulator for children with life-threatening illnesses in the past year.

Dumoulin told the Daily Democrat his group is committed to fulfilling many more wishes in the coming years.
