The 2020 VCUGC remains scheduled to take place on
Tuesday, June 23rd at Country Club of Vermont in Waterbury Center.
In 2019, the Association, Vermont credit unions, and our business partners raised nearly $9,000 for Vermont Foodbank through the proceeds from multiple AVCU fundraising events, so we need everyone’s help to beat that in 2020! Although the COVID-19 virus may impact this event, Country Club of Vermont professional David Bennett promised to work with AVCU in June if the situation merits a change in plans. Registration will open the first week of April and, at least for now, the club and AVCU are ready to host the tournament as the Foodbank greatly needs the financial support of AVCU and Vermont credit unions.
Questions can be directed to Tournament Coordinator John Cote by email to JohnCote(at)VermontCreditUnions.coop or by calling 802-861-7033.
2019 VCUGC Results
Under spectacular weather conditions, 52 golfers representing eight Association member credit unions and four corporate sponsors teed it up at Country Club of Vermont on Monday, June 24th to support Vermont Foodbank’s mission to gather and share quality food and nurture partnerships so that no one in the Green Mountain State will go hungry.
The team (pictured in the page header above, left to right) comprised of Chris Gunnare (PSCU), Rick Hommel (VSECU), Sean Gammon (Members Advantage Community CU), and Jeff Pierce (CUNA Mutual Group) became the 2019 Low Gross Champions by shooting an impressive 14 under par 58.
The team from One Credit Union (pictured below, left to right) of Brett Jasinski, Brett Smith, Nate Cobb, and Mike Sylvia took the Low Net Champion honors with a score of 50.71. Each golfer on both winning teams received a $50 clubhouse credit gift card and a winner’s trophy engraved with their name to commemorate their victory.
Individual awards were presented to Closest to the Pin winners Sean Gammon and Rick Hommel. Brian Hughes representing Tricorp FCU won the putting contest after besting 16 others who qualified for the finals. Each golfer won a $100 VISA gift card for their winning effort.
Winners of additional fundraising activities benefiting Vermont Foodbank were Nate Cobb, who held the lucky ticket for the raffle prize of a weekday foursome with carts generously donated by Country Club of Vermont. Four Silent Auction prizes donated by AVCU, Members Advantage Community CU, Vermont FCU, and VSECU were won by Gammon, Greg Hahr (New England FCU), Brian Hughes, and Lisa Huyer (NorthCountry FCU).
AVCU gratefully thanks all of our credit union and corporate sponsors and participating organizations for helping to support Vermont Foodbank. We also want to recognize and offer our thanks and appreciation to the four board members of the CU Young Professionals of Vermont (pictured below, left to right) Blair Wolston (VSECU), Shawna Wheaton (New England FCU), Amanda Reid (Vermont FCU), and Tim Carpenter (Opportunities CU) and their credit unions for volunteering their workdays for a great cause.
