The nominees were posted to America’s Credit Union’s (ACU) Facebook and Twitter pages for Fans and Followers to vote for their favorite charity.
Winning JBLM Charity: Santa’s Castle received 9,068 votes. The $500 check was donated at a Check Presentation at Santa’s Castle located on JBLM on November 5, 2012.
Santa’s Castle posted numerous Facebook posts and tweets in support of the Charity Challenge. Members and none members responded with over 9,000 votes.
“Over 16,000 votes were cast through America’s Credit Union’s (ACU) Facebook and Twitter pages. The final tally was counted on the morning of October 22nd, the last day of the contest. Facebook and Twitter have become major leaders in social media. The ACU Charity Challenge contest allows members to play a role in charitable donations while networking with friends and co-workers,” said Odis Crosby, ACU’s Media Marketing Specialist. “Other nominees were The Dash Center for the Arts, Navy League, Frederickson Clover Creek Community Council, AUSA and AFA.”
