A regional chapter of the Virginia Credit Union League, Southside Chapter of Virginia Credit Unions includes eight credit unions in the tri-cities area including Fort Lee Federal Credit Union, People’s Advantage Federal Credit Union, Hopewell Chemical Federal Credit Union and Petersburg Federal Reformatory Credit Union.

Credit union chapters provide a way for credit unions to come together to support local organizations as well as the credit union movement. Southside Chapter credit unions embrace their cooperative spirit, thriving on teamwork with each other to build a better community.

Participation from the community was also an integral part of success of the tournament.

“We were honored and humbled by the generous support and participation from businesses and individuals in the area. We could not have done it without their help,” said Sarah Marks, Southside Chapter President. The Chapter especially thanks Event Sponsor, CUNA Mutual Group, and supporting Gold Sponsor, P.W. Campbell. Each of these companies has been a loyal sponsor, proudly participating for multiple years.

Additionally, The Southside Chapter graciously thanks COOP Miracle Match for their matching donation to support Children’s Miracle Network. Their support brought the total contribution for CMN of Richmond to $15,544.00.

Amy Dickstein, Programs Coordinator for CMN of Richmond, expressed her gratitude for the support. “Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is delighted to accept this wonderful donation from the Southside Chapter of Virginia Credit Unions. Their dedication will continue to advance pediatric healthcare at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, and
we are very proud to call them our partner.” 

Virginia Credit Union PAC was also a beneficiary of the tournament, receiving over $7,530. A non-partisan group, VACUPAC provides a positive voice for credit unions within local and federal government with respect to legislative and regulatory affairs.
