Celebs head All-Star Golf for the Gulf lineup
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (11/5/08)--A Golf for the Gulf tournament Nov. 18, featuring celebrity golfers, will benefit the Texas Credit Union Foundation’s (TCUF) Hurricane Ike Phase II disaster relief efforts. Baseball Hall of Famers Harmon Killebrew and Ozzie Smith, Babe Ruth Award-winner Bert Campaneris, former Dallas Cowboy Billy Joe Dupree, and country and western recording star Charley Pride--who played in the 1950s Sox Negro league, will headline the celebrity roster. Major leaguers Rob Nen, Tim Worrell, Frank Quilici, Frank Kostro, and Eddie Bonine will round out the current-player list. CUNA Mutual Group announced its sponsorship last week, joining Southwest Corporate FCU, CO-OP Financial Services, Bluepoint Solutions, ASI/ESI, U.S. Central FCU and Pulse. “This is a great opportunity to support a very important cause,” said Dick Ensweiler, president/CEO of the Texas Credit Union League. “The credit union community has been quick to respond to the initial disaster needs, and we know the response will be there for the longer-term needs as well.” The foundation’s Phase II grants will be used to assist the longer-term needs of credit unions employees with the most severe damage and losses. TCUF already has provided more than 950 grants, totaling about $495,000, to individuals who work for credit unions in the affected areas. However, the number of people who lost their homes is significant, the foundation said.
