City of Boston Credit Union has stepped up as the title sponsor for this year’s Putts & Punches for Parkinson’s Golf Tournament. The tournament created and hosted by Shawn Thornton of the Florida Panthers, formerly of the Boston Bruins, was held on Monday, August 8. Now in its seventh year, proceeds are donated to organizations that support the fight against Parkinson’s disease.
The decision to back Thornton was an easy one for the Credit Union. “Like the City of Boston Credit Union, Shawn is an institution in Boston. Not just by bringing home the Cup in 2011, but for what he does for the community year round. When Shawn chose the City of Boston Credit Union to be not only his, but his foundation’s financial institution it only strengthened our long standing relationship with him. The City of Boston Credit Union is proud to stand with Shawn, as he and his foundation continue their good work in the fight against Parkinson’s disease and cancer,” stated Credit Union Chairman of the Board and President, Steve Green.
City of Boston Credit Union is one of the oldest credit unions in the country, established in 1915. Individuals that live or work in Norfolk or Suffolk Counties, as well as, City of Boston and Commonwealth of Massachusetts employees, can choose City of Boston Credit Union for all their financial needs. The Credit Union has locations in Boston City Hall, Dorchester, West Roxbury and Canton. For more information about City of Boston Credit Union visit cityofbostoncu.com or call 617-635-4545.
