The Madison County Child Advocacy Center was chosen by the 1st MidAmerica Credit Union as the recipient of funds from the credit union’s annual Charity Golf Outing in September.
This is the second year in a row that the center has been the charity of choice for the golf outing.
“We are honored to be considered a partner of the Madison County Child Advocacy Center,” President and CEO Alan Meyer said. “In helping them serve our communities through the hard work they do, we also support our members and local residents by growing safer and stronger communities.”
This year, through sponsorships, donations and registrations, the golf outing raised $27,637. This was a record high for the tournament. In 2013, the tournament raised approximately $17,000 for the center.
“The Child Advocacy Center is thankful to be the recipient of these funds two years in a row,” CAC Executive Director Carrie Cohan said. “We are glad to have the continued support of wonderful organizations in the community like 1st MidAmerica Credit Union.”
The center was founded in 2003 and has served more than 5,000 children involved in allegations of child maltreatment. The mission of the CAC is to provide a professional and child-friendly environment to assist in the investigation of child abuse, provide access to services and treatment for victims and their families and raise awareness within the community.
