Bridgewater Credit Union Announces 1st Annual Charity Dodgeball Tournament

Bridgewater, MA -- Bridgewater Credit Union announces the formation of their 1st annual charity Dodgeball tournament to be held on April 21, 2012.  The event, open to the public, will take place at The DOME Athletic Complex on Route 18 in Bridgewater from 11 am – 3 pm.

Bridgewater Credit Union plays many roles in helping charities throughout MA. As a major contributor to CU Kid’s At Heart Campaign, 100% of the proceeds will go to benefit Children’s Hospital.

“We wanted to create an annual event that we could call our own and be able to give to charities that we hold near and dear to us,” says Mark Campanale, Director of Marketing.  “We have a strong philanthropic plan for 2012 and beyond, and want to make an impact in many of the areas we service for years to come.”  Some of the other charitable plans include a partnership with Bridgewater State University for their Financial Literacy and Giving Program (FLAG) and anchoring a major sponsorship that will create the New Bedford JazzFest in support of Your Theatre, Inc.  In 2011, the credit union launched their first ever charity Recipe Book that raised more than $3,000 for local soup kitchens.

Sign-up sheets for the Dodgeball Tournament can be found at all Bridgewater Credit Union locations, as well as on their web site: www.bridgewatercu.com.

Bridgewater Credit Union is a state chartered community credit union. Any person who lives or works in the Massachusetts counties of Plymouth, Bristol, Barnstable or Norfolk is eligible to join.
