Funtastic Fundraiser on 2/7/2017

Palisades Credit Union Partners with Rockland Boulders for Charity

Palisades Credit Union is proud to partner with the Rockland Boulders in their new and exciting fundraiser program that is guaranteed to help area groups and 501(c)3 organizations raise an unprecedented amount of money while enjoying all the fun of a Boulders home game.

“The Rockland Boulders have been successful since day one and a lot of that success can be attributed to groups who enjoy spending quality time together at the ballpark,” said Ken Lehner, Boulders Team President.

The “Funtastic Fundraiser Program” can be enjoyed as part of any Friday or Saturday home game during the Boulders 2017 regular season. On Friday nights, qualifying groups can sell $15 tickets that include a special Rockland Boulders hat and an infield box seat. For each ticket sold, the Boulders will donate $4 to the participating group. The same deal will apply on Saturday nights, $15 for an Infield Box Seat and a Boulders hat, but the team will instead donate $6 to the organization for each ticket sold.

During this exciting new program, should any 501(c)3 organization sell at least 100 tickets to their individual game, Palisades Credit Union will match the donations by the Boulders – which will allow groups to receive up to $12 back for every $15 ticket sold.

 “Palisades Credit Union is proud to be part of a fundraising program that gives back to community groups and organizations,” said Tony Molina, CEO of Palisades Credit Union. “It is exciting that our participation will allow organizations to continue to make a difference in, and provide for Bergen, Orange, and Rockland counties.”

A total of 19 dates are available for this exciting program, including 10 Saturdays throughout the 2017 summer, that all include a post-game Fireworks Extravaganza. The first game where groups can take advantage of this new plan is Saturday, May 20th, a scheduled double-header with the Sussex County Miners set to begin at 6:30pm at Palisades Credit Union Park.

If your group is interested in booking a fundraiser game this year, call (845) 364-0009 to speak with an experienced Rockland Boulders sales representative. The Rockland Boulders will begin their seventh season of play in the Can-Am League on Thursday, May 18th at 7:00pm when they host the Miners.

Mystery Shopper Scam on 8/12/2016

Palisades Federal Credit Union is aware that there is a Mystery Shopper Scam that utilizes fraudulent credit union checks with our logo and credit union information.

Letters are being sent welcoming people to the Mystery Shopper program. Recipients are asked to deposit the fraudulent check into their bank accounts. After completing a few assignments, they are told to keep a set amount as their payment for completing the mystery shop assignments and to send the rest back to the sender.

If you receive an invitation from a Mystery Shopping company,

  • DO NOT deposit the check. Legitimate companies will not pay you in advance and ask you to send money back to them.
  • Verify the company information.
  • If it sounds too good to believe, it usually is.

If you have received one of these letters, we ask that you contact us so that we can continue our investigation with the appropriate authorities. You may give us a call at 845-602-4242.
