Martinsville, Virginia (May 2, 2022) – The ValleyStar RISE Foundation, the charitable arm
of ValleyStar Credit Union, is thrilled to host The Big Tee Off golf tournament at Chatmoss
Country Club in Martinsville, Virginia, on May 5, 2022. All funds raised will support Carilion
Children’s Hospital located in Roanoke, Virginia.

The foundation’s initial goal was to raise $40,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network
Hospital, but thanks to the support from sponsors, golfers and ValleyStar team members,
they have exceeded the goal!

“I didn’t know what to expect since we have not been able to host the tournament in over
two years, but everyone has been incredibly supportive in our efforts,” said Greta Kidd,
Executive Director of the ValleyStar RISE Foundation. “Since we have surpassed our goal of
$40,000 with five days left until we gather at Chatmoss, we’ve decided to set a new goal of
$48,000 in hopes of having a greater collective impact.”

ValleyStar Credit Union’s team members have played a huge role in raising awareness
about the importance of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals when engaging with
members and when out in the community.

Both morning and afternoon flights for The Big Tee Off golf tournament for Children’s
Miracle Network are currently sold out.
