On Friday May 20th, Members CU held its 20th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at the Maple Chase Golf and Country Club in Winston-Salem, NC. This year’s tournament benefited two very worthy causes as the proceeds will be divided equally between the Members CU Scholarship Fund and The Wig Banks of Caldwell and Catawba Counties. This year the tournament raised over $6,100!
The MCU Scholarship Fund was established in 1996 and provides academic and need based scholarships to MCU members. In 2016, 10 members received scholarships worth a total of $12,000. Since the inception of our program the credit union has provided $222,500 in scholarships to our members.
The Wig Banks of Caldwell and Catawba Counties provide services such as free cancer screenings, transportation expenses to cancer treatment centers and prosthetic wigs for those who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy. MCU sponsors annual Wig Walks to support the Wig Banks of Caldwell and Catawba Counties. The initial Wig Walk was held in Caldwell County in 2012 and the first Catawba County Wig Walk occurred in 2013.
Funds were raised with the help of our very generous sponsors: First Carolina Corporate CU, Air One Industries, FISERV, State National, Fort Bragg Federal CU, CSCU, Level 3 Communications, PFP, the John Loftin Family, Howe Construction and Carol Cooke.
