American Airlines FCU Makes $54,000 Donation to Children's Miracle Network

FORT WORTH, TEXAS (January 4, 2022) — American Airlines Federal Credit Union proudly presented Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals with a $54,000 donation as a result of its 25th Annual Credit Union Golf Tournament – which took place on Sept. 3. 2021, at Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine, Texas. The total donation will be split between Cook Children’s Medical Center Foundation and Children’s Medical Center Foundation.

The check was presented last month at the American Airlines Credit Union headquarters building in Fort Worth. Karol Johnson, Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth; and Kendal Rowden, Children’s Medical Center Foundation in Dallas; were in attendance to accept the donation from Credit Union President & CEO Gail Enda and tournament coordinator Tish Pruitt.

The tournament was sponsored by a number of Credit Union vendors/partners, including presenting sponsors: Global Vision Systems, Inc.; Symitar; PSCU; and many other businesses who participated at various sponsorship levels.

“Our annual tournament was almost back to normal again as we gathered to raise much-needed funds for charities that are still in exceptional need, especially after our nation, and the world, continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Tish Pruitt, Golf Tournament Director at American Airlines Credit Union. “We also made efforts to once again ensure the safety of all or our participants as well as our volunteers.” 

“For many participants, this golf tournament outing was the first time seeing peers since the pandemic began,” said Gail Enda, Credit Union President & CEO. “This is a great way to come together, have some fun and show our support to our healthcare community.  It was important for us to get back to helping raise money for our children’s hospitals.”

Credit unions hold fast to their motto of “People Helping People” and this philosophy blossoms with the industry’s support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Credit unions fund-raising under the Credit Unions for Kids brand have partnered with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1996, generating more than $100 million in contributions. 

“As a longtime supporter to Children’s Health, American Airlines Credit Union has faithfully provided mission-critical funding to support delivery of the best care possible to the nearly 300,000 kids we serve each year,” said Brent Christopher, president of Children’s Medical Center Foundation. “We’re grateful for the continued commitment and dedication of their team to helping us make life better for children.”

 “Cook Children’s is incredibly grateful for our long-standing partnership with American Airlines Credit Union,” said Grant Harris, SVP, Chief Development Officer, Cook Children’s Health Foundation. “Thanks to their generous support of our Sit…Stay…PLAY facility dog program, our patients receive a unique form of healing through their interactions with our six therapy dogs. On behalf of our staff, patients and families, I would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to everyone at the Credit Union for all that they do.”
