EECU kept it cool for the Fort Worth’s Fourth celebration at Panther Island
What happens when 70,000 people gather together in Texas in July? Heat. That’s exactly what happened Saturday for the Fort Worth’s Fourth celebration at Panther Island Pavilion. As sponsor of the EECU Skybox, your credit union kept things cool for attendees who were treated to much-needed relief from the 90-degree temperature.
EECU CEO Lonnie Nicholson and 24 employees volunteered at the event providing attendees an air conditioned tent complete with food, cold drinks, fans, ice cold towels, a relaxation zone and other necessities for escaping the holiday heat. The EECU Skybox also offered a prime location to watch North Texas’ largest fireworks show.
“EECU is committed to serving the community and what better way to show our appreciation to Fort Worth families than by helping them celebrate our nation’s birthday at Panther Island,” said Nicholson.
EECU supports organizations involved in the development of the Panther Island/Central City district including Trinity River Vision Authority, which puts on the Fort Worth’s Fourth celebration as well as regular events on the river such as Rockin’ the River and Sunday Funday. With headquarters and a new operations center bordering the Panther Island/Central City district, EECU is excited to be involved in the growth of this important development.
