American Airlines CU Donates $50,000 to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

FORT WORTH, Texas – AA Credit Union proudly presented the Children’s Miracle Network with a $50,000 donation as a result of the 14th Annual American Airlines Federal Credit Union Golf Tournament – which took place at the Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine, Texas. The total donation will be split between Cook Children’s Medical Center and Children’s Medical Center Dallas. The check was presented June 30 at the AA Credit Union headquarters building in Fort Worth. Natalie Houghton and Jackie Daulton, Children’s Miracle Network Coordinators at Cook Children’s Health Foundation; Bill Braem, Vice President of Annual Giving for Cook’s Children's Medical Center Foundation; and Amy Weidner, Director of Corporate Relations and Cause Marketing at Children's Medical Center Dallas were in attendance to accept the donation.

The tournament was sponsored by a number of Credit Union vendor/partners, including presenting sponsors: CO-OP Network; Global Vision Systems, Inc.; FiServ; PSCU Financial Services, and many other sponsors who participated at various sponsorship levels.

"It was a great day out on the greens at Cowboys Golf Club with our vendor/partners. We raised much-needed funds for two great Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in the Dallas/Fort Worth area,” said Pedro Noda, Golf Tournament Director and eMarketing Manager at AA Credit Union. “We're excited to make this donation on behalf of AA Credit Union and the many donors who helped make this event possible."

Since 1996, credit unions have partnered with Children’s Miracle Network, when the Credit Unions for Kids program was introduced nationwide. The funds raised help support new facilities, equipment, research programs, patient services, special patient needs and health education programs benefiting 17 million children annually.

The donation from the golf tournament will be included in CO-OP Financial Services’ Miracle Match program, a $1 million matching funds program which aims to match contributions at the local level, expanding the contributions raised by credit unions to stimulate even greater giving for Children’s Miracle Network. The program will match 20 percent of the overall donation adding an additional $10,000 to the total.

“Despite the challenges in today’s economy, giving back to the community remains a top priority for our member credit unions,” said Stan Hollen, CEO of CO-OP Financial Services. “The Miracle Match program aims to assist in stimulating the fundraising efforts of our members in the communities where they live and work.”

“As corporate citizens, we understand how important it is to support our community,” said Angie Owens, AA Credit Union President and CEO. “I’m very proud of how generous our employees, vendors and sponsors are when it comes to supporting a wonderful organization like Children’s Miracle Network, and with the Miracle Match program, it makes our fund-raising efforts even greater.”
