They are true role models for Laramie County.”
The golf tournament comes on the heels of a year full of giveback from the Credit Union. While this is a stand along golf tournament that is hosted by Blue, the Credit Union and its employee volunteers have sponsored and volunteered at several benefit tournaments throughout the summer. “We couldn’t do what we do without our “army of Do Gooders,” said Bolkovatz. “Blue dedicates thousands of dollars to community events each year, but without our employees helping out, we wouldn’t have near the impact.”
The Blue Foundation was founded to help the Credit Union and its members fulfill their “Do Good” mission. The non-profit champions, funds and celebrates other non-profit causes in the several communities Blue serves. For more information, please click here.
