Citadel golfers raise money for United Way
Citadel Federal Credit Union announced its 2016 golf fundraiser, held at Honeybrook Golf Club, raised more than $7,200 for the United Way of Chester County. The company recently presented the check to United Way staff.
Citadel’s annual event brings employees and their families together for golf and barbecue while raising funds to support the United Way. The goal of the fundraiser is to encourage employees to socialize and contribute to an important community cause.
“We’re very grateful for the support of Citadel employees from this event,” said Claudia Hellebush, president and CEO of United Way of Chester County. “It’s wonderful to see an organization combine an annual social outing with a community fundraiser.”
As a community-based financial institution, Uwchlan-based Citadel encourages employees to give their time and talent to assist corporate partner organizations or nonprofits of personal choice. Through Citadel’s volunteer program, employees volunteer hundreds of hours to community organizations.
