Local Credit Union Raises Funds for Kids in Need
The IBM Southeast Employees’ Credit Union’s Southeast Credit Union Foundation hosted the Inaugural Bowl-A-Thon, raising over $4,000 in funds for local kids in need.
The SECU Foundation’s family-friendly bowl-a-thon took place at Greenacres Bowl, 6126 Lake Worth Road, Greenacres, Florida, on Sunday, September 23, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event was open to everyone; IBMSECU employees and community friends were encouraged to participate.
The mission of the Southeast Credit Union Foundation is to improve the lives of children and families in the communities we serve. All proceeds raised from annual icon and candy sales in IBMSECU branches along with the Kilometers for Our Community Virtual 5k and other fundraising events were donated directly to the foundation and used to support causes like local scholarship awards and school supplies for children in need.
This cost was $20 per individual and $100 for a team of five bowlers. Cost included two hours of bowling, shoe rental, pizza, and soft drinks. All proceeds benefited IBMSECU’s Southeast Credit Union Foundation.
The Southeast Credit Union Foundation Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered in the state of Florida.
Stephen Johnson, Director of the Southeast Credit Union Foundation stated, “It was so exciting hosting the inaugural SECU Foundation Bowl-A-Thon! It was a great success and we plan on doing this again next year! It was a great fun, family-friendly event for our employees and community members. Giving back to the communities we are in is so important to us.”
