Tower Classic Golf Tournament Raises $26,000 to Benefit the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center

Laurel, MD—Tower Federal Credit Union's 31st Annual Tower Classic Golf Tournament raised $26,000 to benefit the Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore, Md. The tournament, which was originally scheduled for June 15, was postponed until June 21 due to stormy weather. The credit union welcomed 36 sponsors and 119 golfers to the event held at the Renditions Golf Club in Davidsonville, Md.

"I am always amazed by the generous support we receive each year from our players, sponsors and fellow credit unions," said Sean Zimmermann, Tower's Senior Vice President of Operations and Technology, who served as Master of Ceremonies and also golfed at the event. “The Tower Classic is a great way for us to come together and enjoy the day while raising funds for the Children’s Center." Major event sponsors included FIS Global, Office Max, CUNA Mutual Group, PW Campbell, Intuit, Recall and Sentral Building Services.

Proceeds from Tower Classic players, sponsors and donations from the business community totaled $16,000. CO-OP Financial Services contributed an additional $10,000 through its Miracle Match program, bringing the day's total to $26,000. Miracle Match is a philanthropic matching program that encourages credit unions, chapters and leagues to create and participate in local Children's Miracle Network fundraisers that benefit 170 children's hospital nationwide. This is the fifth consecutive year that the Tower Classic has received the maximum in matching funds.

Zimmermann said the golf tournament has evolved over the years from a casual outing for Tower Board members and managers to a major fundraising event for the credit union. In the past five years, the Tower Classic has brought in over $25,000 each year to help sick children and their families. Since 1998, the Tower Classic has raised over $213,000 for the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
