DCU for Kids, the non-profit charitable foundation of Digital Federal Credit Union, has supported the Boomer Esiason Foundation for several years via its annual charity golf tournament, and this year, DCU continued its tradition of philanthropic leadership.
The 11th Annual DCU for Kids’ Charity Golf Tournament was held in June in Boylston, Mass. For the sixth consecutive year, proceeds from the event benefited BEF, as well as other local deserving causes and charities benefiting children and families.
“Supporting Boomer’s ongoing efforts, as well as making a meaningful difference in the communities where we serve our members on a daily basis, is imperative to our organization,” said Jim Regan, DCU’s President and CEO. “Boomer’s vision, passion and his work as a tireless advocate for finding a cure to a disease that affects over 30,000 Americans is a testament to the individual that he is.”
Boomer joined more than 100 participating golfers for a day on the course, silent auction, buffet dinner and afternoon awards ceremony.
During the ceremony, Boomer spoke of DCU’s involvement and support of the Foundation. “DCU has unconditionally supported our efforts through this tournament in helping to find a cure for cystic fibrosis,” he said. “The leadership, as well as each and every employee of DCU, have raised and continue to raise the bar when it comes to their involvement in responsible corporate citizenship.”
