Golfers enjoyed the nice weather and played a round of golf at TruMark Financial’s Building Financial Futures Golf Classic on Oct. 12, at Talamore Country Club in Ambler, Pa. A sold out slate of 120 golfers supported the event, raising more than $37,000 to benefit local schools’ financial literacy programs.
In addition to 18 holes of scramble golf tournament play, competitors tested their skills at the following contests: putting, closest to the pin, golferoo, and men’s and women’s longest drive. In the hole in one competition, participants had the opportunity to win $10,000. Golfers welcomed the chance to connect with colleagues they haven’t seen for quite a while due to the pandemic.
“We appreciate the tremendous support from our sponsors, employees, vendors, credit union colleagues, and guests who attended the event and joined us in our mission to provide grants for local schools in need of personal finance resources,” said Richard F. Stipa, TruMark Financial’s chief executive officer.
Financial education remains a priority at TruMark Financial. Funds raised provide grants to area schools so they may purchase materials to teach the basics of money management. Learning about saving, budgeting, and credit helps students make informed financial decisions and guides them to a future of financial success.
