Through the purchase of raffle tickets by GTE Financial staff and members, GTE Financial raised $8,960 for the ninth annual Credit Union Kids Classic to benefit the Center for Autism at All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL.
“We more than doubled the money we raised last year and think the generous support of our staff and members is incredible” says Joe Brancucci, president and CEO of GTE Financial. “The Center for Autism helps so many families in our community and we feel it’s important to contribute to their cause each year.”
Seventeen Florida credit unions were part of the fundraising effort for Credit Union Kids Classic raffle this year. The Credit Union Kids Classic golf tournament was held on Oct. 14 at the Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club in Dade City, FL, and the raffle ticket winner of a $10,000 Visa® gift card was announced as Kenneth G., a member of GTE Financial.
