Richmond-Area Golf Tournament Raises $8,000 for VACUPAC

Authored By: Lewis Wood on 8/1/2023

A giant thank you to Henrico FCU for hosting and putting on the annual Bill Dawson VACUPAC Golf Tournament, which raised over $8,000 for VACUPAC. We'd also like to thank all of the credit unions and vendors who supported the tournament.Henrico Federal Credit Union, Richmond-area credit unions and credit union business partners presented an $8,000 check to VACUPAC this week to support Virginia credit unions' advocacy work. Henrico FCU hosts and coordinates the annual Bill Dawson VACUPAC Golf Tournament in support of the Virginia Credit Union Political Action Committee (VACUPAC), the political action committee for Virginia-based credit unions. The tournament is named in honor of the late Bill Dawson, a longtime volunteer on the Henrico FCU board of directors and a champion for state credit unions' advocacy work, including political fundraising.

"We're grateful for Henrico's work in support of the tournament," noted League Chief Advocacy Officer JT Blau, "and thankful to Richmond-area credit unions and business partners for helping make it a success. VACUPAC depends on fundaising initiatives like this to raise the money we need to advocate effectively for credit unions in Virginia."

Sixty golfers teed off in the tournament on May 9.
