In continuing our support for the first responders who keep our communities and neighbors safe, MCU sponsored the 45th annual FDNY vs. NYPD Charity Hockey Game held at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, March 24, 2018. The credit union proudly presented a donation of $5,000 to the FDNY, who triumphed during a shoot-out after a 4-4 tie during regulation play.
“We’re very proud to show our support for the annual FDNY vs. NYPD Charity Hockey Game and I’d like to personally congratulate both teams on their efforts,” said MCU Vice President of Business Development/Member Relations Corey Fernandes. “This event not only brings together two great New York City institutions, but also goes on to benefit many worthy causes.”
The sold-out game, which is hosted each year to raise funds for various charities including the PBA Widows and Children’s Fund and the Uniformed Fire Officers Association Widows and Children’s Fund, additionally honored FDNY Lt. Michael Davidson, who was killed two days earlier in a Harlem building fire.
