Charity Golf Tournament

Registration is now open for the 2017

Registration is now open for the 2017 Vermont CU Golf Challenge on Tuesday, June 13th at Country Club of Vermont.

NEW for 2017!

AVCU has added a 50/50 Silent Auction during the post-tournament barbecue.  100% of the auction proceeds will be split equally between tournament benefactor Vermont Foodbank and Vermont Credit Union Political Action (Vermont CUPAC).  We’re confident this new event will deliver even better fundraising results than we’ve enjoyed from past tournaments and are asking all sponsors and teams to commit to donating a Silent Auction gift when completing their online registration via the Eventbrite link above.

Individual cash prizes were won by Ladabouche for the Putting Contest, and Jeff Morse (River Valley CU) and Matt Levandowski (Heritage Family CU) who each won a Closest to the Pin Contest. All three donated their cash prizes back to the tournament’s benefactor and AVCU gratefully thanks each winner for their generosity.

Vermont Foodbank

The real winner on the day however was Vermont Foodbank, which received from AVCU all of the net proceeds from the tournament, as well as the funds we raised with our Cash Booth at this past May’s Annual Meeting. In lieu of doing a giveaway at their 2016 Annual Meeting, Tricorp FCU generously presented AVCU with a check for $500 made out to Vermont Foodbank to be donated on their behalf.  All together, the Vermont Foodbank received more than $4,500 from AVCU on behalf of Vermont’s credit unions and the tournament sponsors of the 2016 Vermont CU Golf Challenge.
