Dave and Dan Classic raised more than $1.273 million to support Credit Unions for Kids, benefiting six Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in California, Colorado, Oregon and Washington, including UC Davis Children’s Hospital.

This year’s fundraising total includes more than $100,000 donated by First Tech employees and members. First Tech Federal Credit Union organized the golf event, bringing together credit unions and industry partners from across the country on July 10 at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in North Plains, Oregon. This year’s event also saw more than 30 celebrity guests who came out to play in the golf tournament, named after NFL Hall of Fame inductees, Dave Wilcox and Dan Fouts.

“Without the philanthropic support from organizations like First Tech and Credit Unions for Kids, we couldn’t make the miracles that we do for our kids every day,” said Jacquelyn Mills, senior director of development at Children’s Miracle Network at UC Davis. “Funds raised will stay local and support leading-edge research, equipment, programs and patient care at UC Davis Children’s Hospital.”

Since 2000, the Dave & Dan Classic – formerly known as the “Hank and Moose Open” – has raised more than $6 million and has become one of the largest credit union sponsored events to support Credit Unions for Kids. The proceeds raised during the tournament benefit the following Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals: OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital (Portland, Oregon), Sacred Heart Medical Center (Eugene, Oregon), Seattle Children’s Hospital (Seattle, Washington), USCF Benioff Children’s Hospital (Oakland, California), UC Davis Children’s Hospital (Sacramento, California), and Children’s Hospital Colorado (Aurora, Colorado).

UC Davis Children's Hospital is the Sacramento region's only nationally ranked, comprehensive hospital providing care for infants, children, adolescents and young adults with primary, subspecialty and critical care. It includes the Central Valley's only pediatric emergency department and level I pediatric trauma center, which offers the highest level of care for its critically ill patients, as well as the West Coast's only level I children's surgery center. The 129-bed children's hospital includes the state-of-the-art 49-bed neonatal and 24-bed pediatric intensive care and pediatric cardiac intensive care units.
