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.
