“The PSECU Chips In Golf Outing was created as a way for PSECU and many of our partner organizations to come together in the ‘people helping people’ credit union spirit to raise funds for community betterment,” explained PSECU President Greg Smith. “The recipient of our fundraising efforts changes each year, which over the years will allow us to share the event’s benefits with a wide selection of groups that represent our members’ best interests. This year, it’s an honor to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.”

Following breakfast and a warm-up period for participants, the golf outing began with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. An awards lunch concluded the event. Listed below, sponsors were integral to the success of the second annual PSECU Chips In Golf Outing.
