PFCU has been all over the map the past few weeks sponsoring and participating in a number of iconic Philadelphia events. On September 18, PFCU employees were out and about enjoying the fresh fall air during the family-friendly Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll.
On September 27, PFCU served as a proud sponsor of the 2014 Cione Family Festival. The marquee event for Friends of Cione Park, the festival helps to raise money for the preservation and improvement of Cione Park in Olde Richmond, Philadelphia. That same day, a PFCU-sponsored team took to the roads during the MS 150 City to Shore Bike Ride. Alongside 7,000 other cyclists, Team Captain Pat Williams, CIO, led his group of six on a 75-mile journey from Philadelphia to Ocean City, NJ. Named “Best Cycling Getaway in NJ” by Bicycling Magazine, this annual bike ride always proves to be a great way for PFCU employees to be active in the community and advocate for a great cause.
On October 4, PFCU made waves on the Schuylkill River during the Philadelphia International Dragon Boat Festival, during which the PFCU team came in 1st place on their third and final race. On October 12th they strutted up Broad Street as a title sponsor for the 2014 Columbus Day Parade. PFCU Board Members Anna DeFusco and Vincent Colaberdino, along with several PFCU employees, marched the parade route alongside Chazz Palminteri, this year’s Grand Marshal.
Where will PFCU be next? Come cheer on employees, family and friends participating in the upcoming Delaware River 5K on October 19 at the Delaware Riverfront Greenway in Port Richmond and the Northeast Philly 5K in the Far Northeast. Not only is PFCU a sponsor of these community events, they’ve also offered to cover the cost of registration for the PFCU employees interested in running/walking the 5Ks.
