PLYMOUTH, Minn. (June 19, 2019)– TruStone Financial employees recently raised $9,000 for Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest. In April, 36 of the credit union’s employees participated in a “Big Bowl” bowling fundraiser at Park Tavern in St. Louis Park, Minn. This was the fourth year that TruStone Financial participated in this fundraiser.
Junior Achievement’s Big Bowl event is a fun way for organizations to raise money for the nonprofit. A company recruits its employees to volunteer as bowlers, and then each bowler raises money by asking friends and family members for donations. All proceeds go to Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest.
“The Junior Achievement Big Bowl fundraiser is a great teambuilding event that our employees look forward to each year,” says TruStone Financial Chief Business Officer and Junior Achievement board member Steve Steen. “I’m proud of our team’s fundraising and volunteer efforts, which allows us to directly support the youth in our communities.”
