IBMSECU Sponsors and Participates in 1st Annual PBCCU Bowl-A-Thon
IBM Southeast Employees' Credit Union (IBMSECU) recently participated in the 1st Annual Children’s Miracle Network Bowl-A-Thon at Greenacres Bowling on April 25, 2017. The Palm Beach Chapter of Credit Unions hosted the event and raised over $1,500 for the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, FL. IBMSECU and Shared Services for Credit Unions were the Bowl-A-Thon lane sponsors.
The CMN event was the first PBCCU annual bowl-a-thon as part of the Credit Unions for Kids program. Credit Unions for Kids is a collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues, and business partners who engage in fundraising activities to benefit 170 Children's Miracle Network affiliated children's hospitals serving 17+ million kids.
Like all Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals donations, funds raised locally will stay in the community to support the hospital’s greatest needs, which include life-saving research, treatments, equipment, and charitable care. The funds raised help to light the way in helping sick children and their parents navigate through stormy days.
In 2016, more than 3,000 credit unions raised almost $11 million for children. CU4Kids ranks third among CMN Hospitals corporate partners in terms of generosity. Contributions fund new facilities, groundbreaking treatments, and vital research, as well as special patient needs. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals benefit more than 10 million children each year.
Michael Miller, CEO at IBMSECU, stated, “We are honored to have such passionate and loyal employees that want to give back to the local communities. We had a lot of fun raising funds for such a worthy organization as the CMN Hospitals.”
