Blue Federal Credit Union will be hosting its 18th Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, August 9 to benefit the United Way of Laramie County. Over the past 17 years, Blue has given over $250,000 through the tournament to the United Way, which serves the individuals and families in Laramie County through various health, education and income funding.
“For 18 years, we have been supporting the United Way of Laramie County through this tournament,” said Vice President of Public Relations, Michele Bolkovatz. “It’s the largest fundraising event that we host for them and we couldn’t be prouder to partner and benefit such an impactful organization.”
The Tournament will be hosted again at The Warren Golf Course on F.E. Warren AFB, which is open to the public. There will be a morning and an afternoon flight, both with slots still available for teams of four. Shotgun starts are at 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., with registration starting at 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., respectively. All golfers will receive a free gift along with lunch served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Halliday Motors will be sponsoring the Hole-In-One prize, giving golfers a chance to win a brand, new car. Additionally, various raffle prizes will be available along with mulligans for purchase the day of the event. Golfers are encouraged to bring cash, otherwise an ATM from Blue is available on site.
“All of us at Blue have been bringing the community together to ‘Do Good’ by supporting the United Way of Laramie County through this tournament. This year will be our second year of having our ball drop to assist in raising more funds for United Way. Our friends at Reiman Corp will drop the balls from the air. Golf balls are available for $10 each or 11 for $100. Please do your part and support our community while having fun at the same time,” said Stephanie Teubner, President/CEO.
While this is a stand-alone golf tournament hosted by Blue, the local community and credit union volunteers have sponsored and volunteered at several benefit tournaments throughout the summer. “We couldn’t do what we do without our “army of Do Gooders,” said Bolkovatz. “Blue dedicates thousands of dollars to community events each year, but without our employees helping out, we wouldn’t have near the impact.”
