Sunny skies, a picturesque venue and a strong showing of support enabled the Ideal CU Community Foundation to raise a record $18,601 at its sixth annual golf tournament on September 14, 2015, which is over a 10% increase from the previous year. The event, held at StoneRidge Golf Course in Stillwater, attracted 109 golfers and 44 sponsors. The foundation will use the funds to aid local education, food shelf and community initiatives.

Ideal President/CEO and foundation Chairman Brian Sherrick expressed his appreciation for the turnout and generosity of participants. “We are extremely grateful for the ongoing support of our vendor partners, credit union colleagues, board members and executive staff in helping to make this sixth annual event a tremendous success,” Sherrick stated. “Thanks to their participation, generous raffle donations and sponsorships, our endowment fund continues to grow and will enable the foundation to continue its mission to strengthen and improve the quality of life in our local communities.” A majority of the Ideal Community Foundation’s funds are raised through its annual charity golf tournament.
