The Upper Peninsula Chapter of the Michigan Credit Union League recently donated $5000 to support Beacon House operations. Beacon House is the U.P.’s only hospital hospitality house.
The funds were raised during the Chapter’s annual golf outing. Chairs of the event, Richard Gatiss of the Upper Michigan Community Credit Union, Karen Dahl, from Northern United Federal Credit Union and Erik Bessonen of the Delta County Credit Union, indicated that this was the sixth charity fund raising outing that the group has held. “This donation was made possible through the generosity of our sponsors and our golfers who've taken the time to participate in this annual event,” indicated Gatiss. “We were pleasantly surprised at the event’s success and the support our golfers gave to the effort.” Thirty credit unions are part of the Michigan Credit Union League’s U.P. Chapter.
“We are so thankful that Beacon House was chosen as the beneficiary of this year’s outing,” stated Mary Dowling, CEO of the organization. “Each group that lends its support to Beacon House, helps ensure that patients and their families seeking medical treatment in Marquette County have a place to stay, should they need it. Every donation helps.”
Beacon House, an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, provides lodging and hospitality services for patients and their families traveling to Marquette County for medical care. The 34 room facility’s operation is dependent upon contributions from individuals, groups, families, corporations and foundations, with housing provided to guests on a donation basis.
