“We are overjoyed with the outpouring of support that has enabled us to reach a new fundraising record for the sixth year in a row,” said Laura Sterling, communications manager, Georgia’s Own CU, Atlanta. The funds will support the Patient and Family Support Services program at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, said Georgia Credit Union Affiliates. Credit unions have raised more than $63 million since 1996 through the Credit Unions for Kids program. Making an appearance at the bowling event was youth named Jack, 9, who was injured after jumping out of his family’s pontoon boat and being hit by the propeller in May 2004. Jack underwent surgery at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta after the accident.
