GCS Credit Union Donates Over $30,000 to Greater St. Louis Honor Flight

FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, IL – GCS Credit Union representatives recently presented a check for $30,416.00 to the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight.  The money was raised during GCS Credit Union’s 3rd Annual Tee Up Fore Veterans Golf Tournament at Stonewolf Golf Club in Fairview Heights.  The mission of the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight is to recognize our local veterans with a day of honor, remembrance and celebration. The veterans experience a one-day, all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials that were built in their honor. GCS Credit Union had a goal to raise $25,000 to fly an entire plane of veterans through the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight. With the help of over 50 sponsors and 110 golfers, GCS Credit Union proudly exceeded this goal.   Keith Burton, GCS Credit Union President and CEO, stated, “This is the perfect example of the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People.” I am so proud of everyone who has made it possible to raise over $25,000 three years in a row. The opportunity to fly an entire plane of our nation’s heroes is a great honor.”  The Greater St. Louis Honor Flight launched in 2008 and has since safely traveled with more than 1500 local veterans. This experience is provided at zero cost to veterans. To find out more about the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight, please visit gslhonorflight.org.
