On November 4th 2016, America’s Credit Union (ACU), held its 16th Annual Turkey Shoot Golf Tournament at Eagles Pride Golf Course. Many local businesses and over 100 golfers, including guest soldiers, participated to help raise $36,000.00 for Santa’s Castle, The Food Basket Program and The Madigan Foundation on JBLM.
The tournament originally started to get Santa’s Castle off the ground. Santa’s Castle is a local charity that assists soldiers in need by providing Christmas presents for them to give to their families. Later, the tournament was expanded to also benefit the JBLM Holiday Food Basket Program and the Madigan Foundation which helps to pay soldiers and their families’ medical costs not covered through insurance.
Kenneth S. Leonard, President/CEO of America’s Credit Union, has been there from the beginning and shared the history and meaning of the tournament as well as his commitment to give back to our soldiers. ACU and Ken are honored to contribute to the morale and welfare of our military.
ACU wishes to thank the following sponsors for their support of this tournament:
