Martinsville, Virginia (May 2017) – ValleyStar Credit Union held its 22nd Annual Golf Tournament at Chatmoss Country Club in Martinsville, Virginia on April 27. The tournament benefited Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Southwest Virginia and raised $20,000 through sponsorships and team entries.
“It’s an honor for us to be able to make this donation to such a worthwhile organization in our area,” remarked Delbert Lee Morgan, President/CEO of ValleyStar. “We are thankful to the sponsors, players, and our employees who came together to ensure this event was a huge success.”
“The tremendous outpouring of support from our community is what makes this golf tournament so incredibly special,” said Erin Cole, Program Director for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Carilion Children’s. “To have a community that truly rallies together in the fight for healthy children is phenomenal and Children’s Miracle Network is so grateful to be able to work with such a great group of people whose giving knows no end.”
