Very rewarding to see the community come together for that well that’s what desert french credit union is it’s a community and you guys have listened to actually your members about how can we all give back as a company and as people who are members there and the members actually have accounts and stuff and they all kind of said let’s get out there and do this

And that’s what you guys do there don’t you yes i it’s part of our longtime tradition right founded by educators we know the importance of giving back and being involved and education is a priority for us and so our members are individuals who really value the importance of being involved in your community and it’s just a long time tradition for us and such a

Great partnership with fiesta bowl because of that yeah jose let’s talk about the fiesta ball committee because a lot of people think it’s only you know the parade and a football game not realizing that there’s a whole nother world that goes on after the games yeah absolutely and we have a slogan that we say we’re more than just a game and it’s the 11 months that

We do 11 the things that we do 11 months out of the year outside of the bowl game time frame that that really makes us stand out is we’re a non-profit we’re an event company we focus on youth sports and education we’re building football fields playgrounds resource rooms give it back to teachers through our wishes for teachers program that desert financial is a

Title sponsor of as well and those are the things that all the dollars we raise we’re able to give back to the entire state yeah and as we come a little closer look at this bus and emma we want to you know kind of like see that it is definitely a bus that is hopefully going to get back out there but you want to let people know right now that you know by joining
