NEPGA-Avidia Bank Partnership Makes Donation to Foundation

-Hudson, MA

 

A check presentation was an exclamation point on what has been a successful year for the New England Section and partner Avidia Bank. 

 

The New England PGA’s Foundation was the recipient of one of the largest single donations in its history on Tuesday. Avidia Bank made a donation of more than $17,000 to the NEPGA Foundation through the use of the co-branded NEPGA and Avidia Bank credit card.

 

The Avidia Bank- New England PGA credit card has unique benefits to NEPGA Professionals. Some of those benefits are through cash back offers and point amounts, but a major advantage is that with every purchase with the card, a percentage is donated to the Foundation. After a year of the card’s use by New England PGA professionals, Avidia Bank’s donation totaled $17,110.67.

 

"We're really honored to be working with them, and we're glad to be able to help the organization and all of their members, and satisfy all of their business needs when it comes to working with a bank both personally and with their businesses," said Avidia Bank executive Bart Murphy.

 

Murphy was joined by Vice President of Business Development Cliff Thompson, and Avidia Bank President Mark O'Connell for the check presentation. Executive Director Mike Higgins, Section President Ron Bibeau, PGA, Vice President Allan Belden, PGA,  and Honorary President Rob Jarvis, PGA were  on hand to accept the check on behalf of the Foundation.

 

The donation will go towards fulfilling the Foundation's commitment to enriching lives of youth, military, and diverse populations through the game of golf. The money will fund golf programs throughout the year and contributions to growing the game. 

 

Thank you to Avidia Bank for being a phenomenal partner to the NEPGA, its members and the Section's Foundation! We can't wait to do some great things with our foundation!
