SACRAMENTO, Calif., November 1, 2011—Employees from The Golden 1 Credit Union celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Junior Achievement (JA) of Sacramento by attending its 25th Annual "Crazy Bowl" fundraiser on October 14, 2011. The nine volunteers, from Golden 1's Internal Audit Department, pledged a total of $450.00 toward the nonprofit organization.
Junior Achievement of Sacramento was established in 1961, and this year they celebrated with a retro Bowl-a-Thon. Held at Country Club Lanes in Sacramento, the event entertained more than 400 participants with glow bowling, music from the 1960s, a fun photo booth, and prizes for bowlers, such as movie tickets, restaurant gift cards, museum passes, and more. The proceeds from the event will benefit 10,000 local students through financial literacy and workforce readiness programs offered through JA.
"Golden 1 works hard to support financial literacy programs for younger generations," says Donna A. Bland, Golden 1's President and CEO. "We are happy to partner with organizations who share our goal of teaching children to manage their money responsibly."
The Golden 1 Credit Union is California’s leading credit union, with more than 80 branches, $7.4 billion in assets and nearly 600,000 members. For more information, please visit golden1.com.
