On October 23-25, 2016, North and South Carolina credit unions came together for a good cause and friendly competition at the 12th Annual Carolinas Cup golf tournament in Charlotte, NC. Hosted by CUNA Mutual Group, the competition raises money for the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation’s partnership with Victory Junction. The event raised nearly $47,000.

Credit union participants from North Carolina (blue team) and South Carolina (red team) came together last October for the Carolinas Cup Golf Tournament. The competition raised $47K for the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation. The SC team took home the trophy, making it their third consecutive win.

“I wanted to be the first to express my sincerest gratitude for your support,” said Carolinas Foundation President Lauren Whaley in an email to sponsors and participants. “The donations received from you and other credit unions across North and South Carolina help make the Foundation’s mission of enriching the lives of children a reality.”

The Carolinas Foundation’s partnership with Victory Junction includes the exclusive sponsorship of Reach, which brings specialized camp-style programming to children and families year-round at hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses all across the Carolinas. Since 2015, the Reach program has touched the lives of more than 10,000 children in every corner of the Carolinas.

“Your support ensures more smiles are possible for those children who deserve it most,” commented Whaley.

Photos of the Carolinas Cup experience are now available on the Foundation’s Facebook page. Stay tuned for an announcement on the 2017 Carolinas Cup dates.
