1st Financial Federal Credit Union Raises Money for Susan G. Komen Foundation
See Joe Run- For a Cure 1st Financial Federal Credit Union Raised $2700.00 for Susan G. Komen Race to See Co-Worker Run in a Dress
What started out as a simple wager between two 1st Financial employees, ended on Saturday, June 21 with one wearing a dress at the 10th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Joe Elder, 1st Financial Federal Credit Union Business Services Director, made good on his bet that if the credit union raised $1,200.00 he would participate in the Susan G. Komen Race in a dress. When it was all over, the credit union more than doubled its goal by raising $2,751.52.
To raise the money, the credit union created the ‘See Joe Run for the Cure’ campaign. The campaign included special activities which included a “pink themed” raffle and ‘Think Pink’ casual Fridays. Each branch sold raffle tickets for a chance to win pink-themed items. Items were a classic pink cruiser bike from Schwinn, a set of ladies Wilson pink golf clubs, and a summer themed pink basket. All proceeds from the raffle and dress down benefited the Susan G. Komen Foundation in St. Louis.
