Garden Savings Raises Over $16,000 for Local Charities at 7th Annual Golf Outing

PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- Garden Savings Federal Credit Union raised over $16,000 for two local charitable groups at its 7th Annual Golf Outing this past July 17th.

The outing, which was the credit union's largest to date, was attended by nearly one hundred credit union professionals and industry business partners. The proceeds will be split between the Children’s Specialized Hospital of New Brunswick and the Rutgers Youth Education and Success Center (YE2S Center) of Newark.

Nicole Fulmino of Children’s Specialized Hospital, Ken Karamichael of the YE2S Center, Garden Savings Executive Team (Lou Vetere, Mike Powers, and Nick Biason) and other volunteers who helped make the outing a success.

“When we first came up with this idea to do a benefit golf outing back in 2011, we never anticipated that its popularity would grow this much,” said Garden Savings President and Chief Executive Officer, Lou Vetere. “Seven years later we have more than doubled our contribution amounts to these wonderful organizations and we are very grateful to all of the support we receive from our sponsors that enables us to make these significant donations. The YE2S Center and Children’s Specialized Hospital both do great things in the community to help people that need it most and that’s in line with the overall mission of our credit union as well. We look forward to another fun and successful outing in 2018.”

Garden Savings is a $350 million dollar full service financial institution that serves the financial needs of over 26,000 members throughout New Jersey and neighboring states.
