BASKING RIDGE, N.J. August 4, 2021 This June, Affinity Federal Credit Union hosted the annual President’s Invitational golf outing and raised almost $200,000 for the Affinity Foundation. Held at Stanton Ridge Golf and Country Club in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, the event drew nearly 100 golfers and was supported by 31 corporate sponsors. Special thanks to our top sponsors, including Fiserv, Harland Clarke, Visa, CUMAnet, Open Lending, Allied Solutions, KEV Security, UBS Financial Services, Ferreira Construction Company, Peter J. Liska LLC, New York Red Bulls, United Nations Federal Credit Union, Schenck Price Smith & King LLP, and Greenwood Products.

“The President’s Invitational is our largest fundraising event, so we were fortunate to be able to resume it this year,” said Karla Wallack, executive director of the Foundation. “Our sponsors came out in force to support the important programs we deliver to our community.” 

The generosity of the event’s donors will help further the Affinity Foundation’s mission and fund its ongoing programs. These include the Member Relief Fund that provides grants to members in immediate financial need, an annual scholarship program that recently awarded $10,000 in scholarships to student members, and a charitable grants program that distributes as many as 50 grants to nonprofit organizations annually across New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.
