Dave and Dan Classic Looks to Continue Credit Unions for Kids Fundraising Support

It’s not every day that you get to tee-up next to Hall of Fame football players such as Ronnie Lott or Anthony Munoz. But at the Dave and Dan Classic, it’s a regular sight.

That kind of star power is one reason why the Credit Unions for Kids fundraising event continues to raise record amounts, bringing in $757,837 in 2015 and more than $4 million to-date in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

This year, golfers will compete at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in North Plains, Oregon on July 11. Registration is to begin at 10:30, with lunch and contests to follow before a 1:00 shotgun start and a 6:00 19th hole dinner and auction.

The format of play will allow for four person teams, which may include a fifth celebrity player. The Peoria Scoring System will determine each team’s handicap based on plan for the day. A scramble format will be played on both courses.

The annual golf tournament was created with the leadership of Tom Sargent, who retired as First Tech Federal Credit Union’s president in 2010. It remains one of the most anticipated Credit Unions for Kids Fundraisers of the year.

Formerly known as the “Hank and Moose Open” named for baseball legends Hank Bauer and Bill “Moose” Skowron, the tournament is now named for Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees Dave Wilcox—a linebacker who played 10 seasons for the San Francisco 49ers—and Dan Fouts—former San Diego Chargers quarterback.

Keep your eye out for an upcoming Q&A with Monique Little, Chief People Officer at First Tech Federal Credit Union, on the ins-and-outs of the Dave and Dan Classic in the coming weeks. For now, lace up your cleats and grab your clubs!
