MUNCIE, IN— PrimeTrust held their first ever Mini-Golf Mixer fundraiser event this past Thursday. This event allowed for friendly competition between local businesses and community groups – all while supporting a local nonprofit.

The Mini-Golf Mixer on June 6th at Boulder Falls Mini-Golf raised $3,565.00 for the Delaware County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) program. The funds raised will provide support to the abused and neglected children in Delaware County.

“We are thrilled with the success of our first Annual Mini-Golf Mixer and the generous support it provided for Delaware County CASA’s mission of advocating for abused and neglected children in our community,” said Tim Pierce, President & CEO of PrimeTrust Federal Credit Union. “CASA volunteers play a vital role in ensuring these vulnerable children have a voice in the court system, and we are proud to partner with such a deserving organization.”

18 teams participated in the Mini-Golf Mixer. Edwards Jones was the overall winner for the team competition. Kay Neidlinger was the overall winner for the individual portion of the event.

“The energy at the Mini-Golf Mixer was fantastic! It was so heartwarming to see the community come together for such a fun and meaningful event,” Ashley Soldaat, CASA program director, said. “The funds raised will directly impact the lives of children appointed to the program. It allows us to provide them with dedicated CASA volunteers who can truly champion their voices in court and advocate for their future. Our heartfelt appreciation to PrimeTrust for their support.”
