BEAVERTON, Ore. & MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This year’s fifth annual Dave and Dan Classic, presented by First
Tech Federal Credit Union, raised more than $1.273 million to support
Credit Unions for Kids, benefiting six Children’s Miracle Network
Hospitals in California, Colorado, Oregon and Washington. This year’s
fundraising total includes more than $100,000 donated by First Tech
employees and members.

First
Tech Federal Credit Union
organized the event, bringing together
credit unions and industry partners from across the country on July 10
at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in North Plains, Oregon. This year’s event

tournament, named after NFL Hall of Fame inductees, Dave Wilcox and Dan
Fouts.

“Without community and philanthropic support from organizations like
Credit Unions for Kids, OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital wouldn’t be
able to provide the exceptional care that it does,” said Dana Braner,

Chair of Pediatrics, OHSU Doernbecher, OHSU School of Medicine. “The

families in need.”

community, and I’m proud of First Tech’s leadership in supporting Credit
Unions for Kids and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said Greg
Mitchell, CEO and president of First Tech. “It’s humbling to see our
