ACU Hosts 16th Annual Turkey Shoot

America’s Credit Union recently held its 16th Annual Turkey Shoot Golf Tournament at Eagles Pride Golf Course. Local businesses joined more than 100 golfers, including guest soldiers, to help raise $36,000.00 for Santa’s Castle, The Food Basket Program, and The Madigan Foundation on JBLM.

The tournament began to get Santa’s Castle—a local charity that assists soldiers in need by providing Christmas presents for them to give to their families, off the ground. Later, the tournament was expanded to also benefit the JBLM Holiday Food Basket Program, and the Madigan Foundation, which helps to pay soldiers and their families’ medical costs not covered through insurance.

Kenneth S. Leonard, President/CEO of America’s Credit Union, shared the history and meaning of the tournament as well as his commitment to give back to our soldiers, saying he and the credit union are “honored to contribute to the morale and welfare of our military.”

ACU also recognized a wide-range of sponsors, including Red Wind Casino, SWBS, Cascase Print Media, Bruce Titus Olympia Nissan, Cook Security, Northwest Motor Sports, Tactical Tailor, The USO NW, Cigar Daddies, The Better Business Bureau, BMW Northwest, Arrow Cleaning, AUSA, Boom, Creative, Costco, Access Softek, CUNA, I5 Designs, Jimmy John’s, Sound Credit Union, The Madigan Foundation, US Family Healthplan, Air-Streams, and Little Caesars.
