Credit Unions Swing into Action, Raising Over $50,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Credit unions and industry partners showcased their commitment to the well-being of their communities, raising over $50,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) at the 2024 Maryland and DC Play Yellow Charity Golf Classic hosted by Credit Union Miracle Day.

Held at Hobbit’s Glen Golf Club in Columbia, Maryland, the Play Yellow tournament brought together 120 golfers for a day of friendly competition and fundraising. Credit Union Miracle Day presented a check for over $45,000 with an additional $5,700 in donations made during the tournament. 

“This incredible achievement reflects the unwavering generosity of our credit unions and business partners,” said John Bratsakis, Board Chair of Credit Union Miracle Day and President/CEO of MD|DC Credit Union Association. “Their continued support strengthens families’ access to critical care at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. It’s a testament to the collaborative spirit of the credit union industry, making a real difference for children facing serious health challenges.”

The funds raised will directly benefit Children’s National in Washington, DC, and Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, supporting critical treatments, healthcare services, and pediatric medical equipment. As its charity of choice, the credit union industry has raised over $200 million for CMN Hospitals since 1996. 

“Local credit unions and industry partners do so much for Children’s National Hospital. Events like the Play Yellow Charity Golf Classic raise critical funds, making it possible for us to provide world-class care for local families, increasing healthcare access and equity in our community,” said Meredith Demeria, Sr. Associate Director, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Children’s National Hospital Foundation. “On behalf of our patients and families, thank you to Credit Union Miracle Day for your support and commitment to children’s health.”

Jennie Phelps, Associate Director of Corporate Engagement and Events at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center said, “We are so grateful to everyone who participated in this year’s Play Yellow Charity Golf Tournament! Your fun on the course creates life changing possibilities for the patients and families at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. Thank you for supporting our patients and their families!”
