Arizona Credit Unions Raise $5000 for Local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals At 22nd Annual Softball Tournament 


PHOENIX –November 5, 2012 –
The Mountain West Credit Union Association hosted its 22nd annual softball tournament raising nearly $5000 to support Credit Unions for Kids benefiting local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Tucson Medical Center.


Nine Arizona credit unions making up eleven teams participated in the event which took place at Papago Park in Phoenix on Saturday October 27, 2012.  Funds were raised through registration fees and donations.

“The Annual softball tournament is an event to look forward to,” said Kellee Dominguez, Community Development Manager with Arizona Central Credit Union and a volunteer with Credit Unions for Kids.  “Not only are we raising money for our local children’s’ hospitals, the credit unions come together and have fun in friendly competition with a common goal, the kids.”

Taking home the top prize for the day was Desert Schools Federal Credit Union, defeating Hughes Federal Credit Union who had been undefeated prior to the final game of the day.

In the last five years, credit unions throughout Arizona have raised nearly $30,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through the annual softball tournament.  Approximately 10 volunteers from credit unions statewide and Mountain West Credit Union Association staff made the event possible.
