FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Albuquerque, N.M.-Zia Credit Union will hold their Sixth Annual Chip-In-4-Kids charity golf tournament at Los Alamos Golf Course on Friday, August 25, 2006, to benefit Children's Miracle Network. Teams of golfers hit the links at 9:00 a.m. with a shotgun start. Participants can look forward to a day of fun and sun, a great lunch and the possibility of winning a prize along the way. To join in on the fun, call Jennifer Harlow at 1-505-662-4671.

The annual charity golf tournament has raised funds to benefit UNM Children's Hospital as part of a $1 million pledge made by the Credit Union Association of New Mexico on behalf of participating credit unions.

By implementing their philosophy of "people helping people" the credit unions have raised more than $40 million nationally for the 170 Children's Miracle Network hospitals in North America.

Children's Miracle Network's "Credit Unions for Kids" program is endorsed by nearly all of the 50 state credit union leagues and is the charity of choice for America's credit union movement for one simple reason - 100 percent of all funds raised go to the local Children's Miracle Network hospital.
