DCECU teams up with the Great Lakes Loons March 04, 2020
For the second consecutive year, Dow Chemical Employees’ Credit Union and the Midland-based Great Lakes Loons Minor League Baseball team are partnering in ways that will benefit the local community.
For the Loons’ 2020 season, which begins April 16, DCECU will once again be the presenting sponsor of Loons wins, donating $100 to Personal Assistance Options (PAO) – a Midland-based nonprofit organization that serves area residents with disabilities – for every regular-season Loons victory. The funds will help support PAO employee training in skills such as CPR, first aid and automated external defibrillator (AED) use; cultural competency; ethics; communication; emergency preparedness; and medication administration.
DCECU also returns as the sponsor of the Loons’ “Rookie Signing Bonus” promotion in 2020. Children ages 3 to 12 may have their parent or guardian register them at loons.com/dcecu for a chance to be the DCECU Rookie of the Game at a 2020 Loons home game. Each Rookie of the Game will receive four tickets to a game, a T-shirt and $50 to put toward their savings courtesy of DCECU. The child also will earn an additional $10 for each run the Loons score during their appointed game.
In addition, DCECU remains the exclusive credit union partner of the Great Lakes Loons and naming rights partner of the Northern Lights Pavilion, the 500-person hospitality venue located down the left field line at Dow Diamond, the Loons’ home stadium.
“We are honored to be the official credit union of the Great Lakes Loons and to have these special partnerships with our neighbors at Dow Diamond,” said DCECU President/CEO Dennis Hanson. “Last year, we were able to give $8,400 to a local nonprofit as presenting sponsor of Loons wins and another $3,300 to local kids through the Rookie Signing Bonus program, and we are grateful to once again have the opportunity to make an impact on the Great Lakes Bay Region via these partnerships with the Loons.”
