In continuing our support for the first responders who keep our communities and neighbors safe, MCU sponsored the 46th annual FDNY vs. NYPD Charity Hockey Game held at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, March 30, 2019.
As part of this sponsorship, the credit union proudly presented a donation of $2,500 to each agency before the puck drop. The sold-out game, which ended in a tie this year, raises funds for various charities including the PBA Widows and Children’s Fund; Uniformed Fire Officers Association Widows and Children’s Fund and the Ray Pfeifer Foundation, which is dedicated to assisting September 11th first responders with medical needs not covered by insurance.
“We’re very proud to be part of this long-standing and impressive tradition,” said MCU Vice President of Business Development & Member Relations Corey Fernandes, who attended the game. “Each year, the FDNY vs. NYPD Charity Hockey Game not only brings together two great New York City institutions while also drawing impressive crowds, it also goes on to benefit many worthy causes within our communities. I’d like to personally thank both teams for both an exciting matchup today and their continued commitment to our city.”
