Nearly 700 New York credit union representatives and system providers gathered for the event.

CUNA Mutual Group presented a check for $31,000 to NYCUF, assisted by sponsor and credit union support for the annual golf tournament, held June 13 and 15 during the convention. Nearly 150 golfers participated. An additional $6,000 was raised for NYCUF through a special reception to honor outgoing CUANY Chairman Lou Jimenez.

By supporting the annual Silent Auction and the first Bingo event, convention attendees raised more than $15,000 for CUPAC, New York credit unions' state-level political action committee.

Sponsorships, donations and a match from CO-OP Financial Services' Miracle Match program helped a Wine Pull raise more than $22,000 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals that serve New York. A total of 202 "mystery bottles" of wine were pulled during the event.
