ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Sports Foundation named the CFE Federal Credit Union as the title sponsor of the organization’s second annual AutoNation Cure Bowl All-Stars event.
The high school football game features players, marching band members, cheerleaders and trainer aides from their respective schools in Seminole and Orange Counties. Up to 300 students from over 40 high schools are expected to participate. Last year, around 70% of the football players received financial aid to play football in college.
The game will take place on Tuesday, December 11 at Showalter Field in Winter Park. Tickets for the event are $5 at the gate but entry is free with a donation of a children’s Christmas gift for the coaches’ Toy Drive Challenge.
Alan Gooch, CEO of the Orlando Sports Foundation, is excited to join forces with CFE Federal Credit Union.
“The Orlando Sports Foundation couldn’t be more pleased to welcome the CFE Federal Credit Union as the title sponsor for our AutoNation Cure Bowl All-Stars game,” said Gooch. “Their involvement in the Central Florida community, more specifically their support of our public schools, makes us proud to partner with them for this event.”
Founded by teachers more than 80 years ago, CFE Federal Credit Union has a longstanding history of supporting education in Central Florida. Through financial literacy, scholarship opportunities, and other initiatives, CFE works to serve its partners in the local school districts and higher education institutions.
