“Tee It Up for Charity” contest coincides with annual golf outing

Pittsburgh, PA, September 8, 2020, (clearviewfcu.org)…Clearview Federal Credit Union hosted their 34th annual golf outing featuring the “Tee It Up for Charity” contest, helping to benefit Pittsburgh area nonprofit organizations.  The contest asked for a one-minute video submission by various charities featuring a heartfelt description of their mission. The top 10 videos were voted on virtually by Clearview members and the public over a 10-day period. 

The 2-day golf outing was held at Beaver Valley Golf Club, and netted a total of $10,000, of which $5,000 will support of Hair Peace Charities, the winner of the “Tee It Up for Charity” contest, as well as the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, one of Clearview’s charitable partners. Hair Peace Charities, founded by Bonny Diver, helps women and girls living in Western Pennsylvania with financial assistance to purchase a wig needed due to cancer. Hair Peace also offers cancer-fighting information, encouragement, and faith with support groups. 

Checks were presented on Saturday, August 29, 2020, at the golf outing.  Hair Piece Charities board member Jane Volk accepted the donation on behalf of the organization. Brian Gulish, VP for Marketing and Communications, accepted on behalf of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

“We are so happy we were able to safely hold our annual golf outing under the circumstances. I am so pleased we are able to continue to support our communities and I am already looking forward to next year’s outing,” said Ron Celaschi, CEO of Clearview.
