Learn How Your Credit Union Can Elevate the Campaign for Ending Hunger This Convention

Elevate 2024 is officially just under two months away—and we cannot wait to see our credit union friends in person! Our League’s annual Convention also brings ample opportunities to support causes we all care so much about, like CULAC and the Campaign for Ending Hunger. Here are all the ways you can help make a difference: 

Annual Ending Hunger Golf Tournament 

There is still time to show your support for the League’s signature fundraising event and the Campaign for Ending Hunger! Taking place May 16 at Purpoodock Club in beautiful Cape Elizabeth, industry peers will gather for a day on the greens, raising money for our hungry neighbors in need.  

There are multiple ways you can help fight hunger through our golf event. As always, you have the chance to join your colleagues on the course by entering a foursome. You’ll want to act quickly, though, as there is only one foursome available to purchase!  

Additionally, sponsoring the golf tournament is a wonderful way to show your support and get your organization’s name out there. Sponsorship of this event is truly what makes it possible, and the more sponsors we have the better we can make the day for all involved. All sponsorship opportunities will close by the end of the day on April 5 so we can prepare all signage and materials for the tournament, so don’t wait! 

Register your team and secure your sponsorship by visiting the golf website at: campaignforendinghunger.org/golftournament2024.

The “Get Tickets” button in the top right is where you can purchase tickets, and the “Become a Sponsor” tab will present you with all currently available sponsorship opportunities.
