“I love being a part of the United Way Committee and seeing how much good we can do when we work together. I think having the committee creates a sense of urgency to give back for the greater good. Seeing how much we raise over the course of a few months is awe-inspiring.”— Julia, Credit Union Employee

EAST LANSING, MI— MSU Federal Credit Union’s President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Patrick McPharlin, joined local leaders to walk the runway during a fashion show event on Thursday, June 6, concluding the fourth annual Dapper Dads Challenge for charity.


The Dapper Dads Challenge is an annual event that raises money for the Sparrow Foundation’s Women Working Wonders (W3) Committee, which provides resources and support for women’s health initiatives within our local community. MSUFCU employees showed their support through various internal fundraising activities such as prize raffles, a cookout, and even a fashion show of their own, and came together to raise close to $4,000 for the charity challenge. MSUFCU funds along with personal donations helped McPharlin take fourth place in the Challenge this year, raising a total of $6,415. Together, the Dapper Dads Challenge participants raised more than $119,000 to benefit the Sparrow Foundation’s W3 Committee.


“At MSUFCU, we are committed to making a positive impact on the community and we are proud to support health resources and wellness opportunities in the Mid-Michigan area. Our staff was very excited to help raise funds for this special event,” said McPharlin.


MSU Federal Credit Union, the world’s largest university-based credit union, offers a full range of personal- and business-related financial services to Michigan State University and Oakland University faculty, staff, students, alumni association members, and their families worldwide in addition to a variety of select employee groups.
