Since 1996, credit unions have partnered with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through the Credit Unions for Kids program. The funds raised help support new facilities, equipment, research programs, patient services, special patient needs and health education programs benefiting 17 million children annually.
The donation from the golf tournament includes a CO-OP Financial Services Miracle Match of $10,000.
