Affinity Federal Credit Union Foundation hosted their second annual Casino Night at The Palace at Somerset Park, Somerset, NJ.  Those who attended spent the evening "Gaming for a Cause" and raised over $30,000 for the Foundation. 

The donations will be used to financially support local, grassroots charities in the communities of Affinity Federal Credit Union members.  In addition to these charities, Affinity also offers scholarships to hard-working students whose commitment to serving the community mirrors the Foundation.

Other local charities that benefit from the event are Matheny Medical and Educational Center, The Somerset Home for Temporarily Displaced Children, Community Hope and its Hope for Veterans® program, the Adult Day Center of Somerset County, The Midland School, Morris County Organization for Hispanic Affairs, Saint Clare’s Hospital, and Saint Peter’s University Hospital.
