PHOENIX (3/11/14)--Better than a birdie or even a hole-in-one, the results from Desert Schools FCU's 16th annual golf tournament resulted in $341,000 for the Children's Miracle Network Hospital in Phoenix.
The recipient--Phoenix Children's Hospital--will use the funds for its "1 Darn Cool School," which provides educational resources to children undergoing long-term treatment (Phoenix Business Journal March 7).
The hospital--Arizona's only member of the Children's Miracle Network--covers more than 70 pediatric specialties for inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency and urgent care.
The Phoenix-based credit union started the golf event in 1998 and has raised more than $2.4 million for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Desert Schools FCU also is celebrating its 75th anniversary with its "Shine On" program that includes more than $1 million in donations to various community groups.
"Our partners, our customers, and our friends in the community help to make these donations possible all year long," the credit union's Executive Vice President Ron Amstutz told the paper.
