Golf Outing Raises More Than $26,000 for ASFM and Michele Myrick Scholarship Fund
On July 18, 96 credit union professionals from across the state gathered for the 17th annual A Stronger Financial Michigan (ASFM) golf outing at Forest Akers Golf Course in East Lansing.
This year’s outing was the first to feature a theme, which was pink. Prizes were awarded to the top-scoring team and the most spirited attendee. This year’s top golfers were Sam Paraschos, Sid DeCou, Joe Eufinger and Mike Vance of Sovita Credit Union. The team with the most “think pink” spirit was Isabella Community Credit Union’s Jenny Hoyle, Lisa Gray, Bridget Staffileno and Teresa Santana.
Thanks to the generosity of the outing’s sponsors, more than $26,000 was raised for ASFM and the Michele Myrick Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance to participants in the MCUL Hike the Hill and the CUNA GAC grassroots lobbying trips to Washington, D.C.
Registration for the 2018 Hike the Hill visits, taking place Sept. 26 & 27, is now open.
