Norm Nolette Chapter Raises Nearly $1 Million Since Golf Tournament’s Inception

Since 1995, the Norm Nolette Chapter of Credit Unions has hosted an annual golf tournament to benefit the Campaign for Ending Hunger. This year’s event was held on August 24 at the Poland Spring Golf Course and raised an outstanding $60,200, exceeding their previous highest fundraising total by $3,200!

The culmination of the Norm Nolette Chapter’s twenty-eighth tournament also signifies another significant milestone: this event has raised $964,171.58 since its start—nearly $1 million! All proceeds throughout the years have been directed to the Campaign.

“When the chapter began hosting this tournament back in 1995, I don’t think any of us could have imagined how much it would grow and raise in support of the Campaign for Ending Hunger,” said Denise Nowinski, Director of Education and Member Relations at Tricorp FCU. “This truly is an event that the credit unions in three states look forward to each year. It is a great way to connect, have fun, and raise money to help combat hunger in Maine.”

The credit unions in the chapter lent a helping hand, from securing sponsorships to working it day-of. Their collaborative efforts made the event a huge success. Tricorp FCU specifically feels a special tie to carrying this tournament out each year, as Norm Nolette was the very first CEO at Tricorp.

For the past 24 years, the Tricorp FCU has led the chapter in organizing and coordinating the event, along with a committee of chapter credit union employees. The tournament location holds significance, as well, as it was Norm Nolette’s favorite course to play. The planning committee feels it is the perfect place to hold their event in honor of him.
