More than 30 Credit Union employees

participated in Bowl for Kids’ Sake on

April 27th. This annual event benefits

Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and

is one of the largest youth mentoring

organizations in the United States. For

more than 20 years Bowl for Kids’ Sake

has been a primary funding stream

for Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies.

participant in Bowl for Kids’ Sake for

We would like to thank our members

the 2012 Daffodil Days Campaign. We

were able to raise $1,418.81 for the

American Cancer Society through this

program. The General Electric Credit

Union was the second top fundraising

company in Erie, and we couldn’t

have done this without you!

Maryann Frontino, from the RCC, holds some donated daffodils.

We also had the opportunity to donate

daffodils to a breast cancer support

group at the Regional Cancer Center.

The Daffodil Days program is more

than just giving flowers every spring, it is

an opportunity to create a world with

less cancer and more birthdays.
