•Pen Air Federal Credit Union’s 15th annual Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society on Friday, March 27 raised $25,000 thanks to the support of many local businesses and generous individuals in the community.
Pen Air selected the society as the recipient of its fund raising efforts because the society’s mission is closely in line with Pen Air’s mission, which is to “Enhance lives through exceptional service, strength, and financial solutions.” The long-term mission of the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society is to help sailors and marines become financially self-sufficient by learning how to better manage their personal finances and prepare for unplanned expenses.
Pen Air FCU has raised well over $425,000 for this cause since the conception of the Charity Golf Tournament.
