Vantage Credit Union recently held a putt-off in place of its annual golf tournament to help raise scholarship funds for area high school students. In addition to playing two holes created by the Vantage Credit Union marketing department, employees at the credit union’s administrative branch could stop in for lunch and enter to win attendance prizes. Participants enjoyed hot dogs, chips, popcorn, and chocolate chip cookies donated by Enterprise Rent-A-Car. The Vantage CU marketing department constructed two holes at its headquarters for the event, making it easy for staffers to play. On the first hole, 21 employees made holes-in-one and were entered to win a $25 Target gift card. The second hole was a par 3 and netted 2 holes-in-one, which won back entry money for the lucky golfers. Open to everyone from the CEO and senior managers to financial service representative and tellers, the event helped employees raise $552 toward scholarships. “It was a great way for us to include employees in our scholarship fundraising efforts and for them to have a little fun in the process,” Vantage CU Marketing Vice President Kathy Palmer said. “It was successful and could very well turn out to be a credit union wide, annual fundraising event.”
